I'm wondering how can I make SO do a sound like the case when you get a new message on Facebook with new questions. Does there exist an option to enable this kind of stuff?
As far as I know, Servy is right in that there is no feature on SE that will do this for you.
However, you can create an IFTTT recipe of your own to do just that. Since you indicated you were interested in following a specific tag, here are instructions for that.
- Grab the RSS link from the tag you're interested in, by hovering over it and selecting the RSS link from the dropdown:
Plug it into the "IF" part of a new recipe on ifttt.com
Then you can choose from many different ways of being notified about it -- you can change the colors of your Philips HUE lightbulbs, for instance; or receive a text message, email, iOS or Android notification about it, among many other things.
....though if email is good enough for your purposes, then you can also hit the "subscribe" link in that dropdown (as highlighted in my picture, above), which will send every new question under that tag as an email to whichever email account you have registered with SE.
You can leverage the websockets with the following userscript, that works for all stackexchange sites (you might want to adapt the @match) on the questions tagged pages. I've added some alternative sounds you can choose from.
src in the audio element is played. On load it finds the correct siteid to register for the correct events.

This works with Chrome and Tamper Monkey.
Browser based:- 1. you can use the Chrome browser extension stackexchange notifier qu which provide sound on new questions.
- use another Chrome browser extension StackNotifier
Standalone software:- You can use feeddemon rss reader with 5 to 30 mins sync. It shows popup with sound on every new question and answer.
