A ringtone is the audio file that your device plays when you receive a call. There are multiple options for setting your own custom ringtones including the ability to apply a specific ringtone to certain contacts or groups of contacts.
Unlike some operating systems, Android allows you to use virtually any audio file as a ringtone. This makes it possible to use your favorite songs or custom tones downloaded over the Internet.
However, unless your audio files are stored in a specific folder on your device, they might not show up in the standard menus. Fortunately, the default Android Music app has you covered.
Lets take a look at how you can assign an MP3 or other audio file on your device as a ringtone.
With this tip, you can customize your ringtones to suit your tastes and provide additional information about incoming calls without the need to check your device’s display.
For additional notification options, there are many apps on Google Play to help create tones, assign custom tones and more.
