Androids as versatile as it already is, can sometimes be a little confusing when it comes to the basic features that everyone is seeking – such as custom ringtones, notification tones and whatnot.

There are tonnes of apps that provide such a thing but I do not recommend it since it creates more hassle compared to the methods that are about to the introduced.

*Note : what you are about to see in the screenshots will be different from what you have, but the end result will be the same*

In this guide, I’m going to merge a few sections together for simplicity.

With computer

Enable your phone to be a external storage media if necessary, then browse into your phone and create folders with specific name such as Ringtones for your ringtones, Notifications for your notifications tunes and Alarms for your alarm tunes. Simple.

Then just drag and drop which tune you would like to use for into its specific folders (E.g. I’d like Portal 2’s sound effect to be my notification tune, so I just drag and drop it into the Notifications folder)
