There are a million cool things to do with your smartphone, but sometimes it's the simplest tricks which are the best. In the guide below, we'll show you how to turn any song into a ringtone on your Android phone, so you can assign it to your friends, family or colleagues.
To do this, we'll be using an app called Ringdroid, which allows you not only to use any sound or song (which you have on your handset) as a ringtone. Once you have created your ringtone, you can then set it as your default sound or assign it to a specific contact. Before we get started, install the free Ringdroid app from the Google Play Store via the link below:
To turn a song into a ringtone, you have to have the audio files or music you wish to use on your smartphone or microSD card. Ringdroid is compatible with MP3, WAV, AAC and AMR audio files, and can create custom alarms and notifications as well as ringtones.
After downloading and installing Ringdroid via the Play Store link above, locate the app on your phone and tap it.
The app will launch and you will find a list of songs on your device in the main window of the app. You can also view all the sounds on your device if you hit the action icon on the top right corner, and choose show all audio.
Select the song you would like to use as a ringtone.
Once you have selected a song, its waveform will open up. Use the two sliders above and below the graph to create a start and end point for your ringtone.
Finally, save the sound clip by pressing the disk icon. You can rename if you wish, and specify which type of alert you want to use it for (ringtone is set as default).
All of the ringtones that you have created will be stored in the app’s main overview. If you happen to have a lot of songs, you can easily search through them with the magnifying glass icon.
