    We want to tap on the option labeled "Inbox sound & vibrate"
    .
    It's important to note that this section is only for the Primary inbox. There are different inbox categories, and this is only for the main inbox (Primary inbox). To learn how to change the notification sound for the other categories, refer to the video on VisiHow on how to do so. Gmail refers to them as labels, even though they're referred to as categories here, they're actually referred to as Labels in other areas. Tapping on this option brings us to the "Label settings" menu.
