How to change the ringtone for a contact on Android

Andy Tonollamada


The customization on the Android smartphones is one of the main advantages we enjoy compared to other operating systems, and it is that we can modify almost anything without getting too complicated here. In many cases we will have to download apps from Google Play, but in other what we need is already inside of our phone.

Android, by default, gives us the freedom to modify certain parameters so that we can make our smartphone different from another of the same model. In this tutorial we are going to explain how you can change the ringtone for a contact on an Android smartphone and thus differentiate it from the other.

The majority of manufacturers incorporates, by default, the ability to assign a different ringtone to each contact individually, so that we can know who calls us just to hear the tone. In order to do this we will not have to resort to Google Play, simply follow these steps.

  • Go to the contacts app (or phone and then click on the ‘Contacts’tab)

  • Choose a contact to which you want to change the tone of the call

  • we Touch on the option of ‘Ringtone’, that will take us to the list of ringtones that we have on our phone

  • we Chose the tone we want and we now have everything ready.

How to change the ringtone of a contact in different brands

The method explained a little higher up is the one that would follow in Android pure (the screenshots belong to Nexus), but in some cases the route to follow would be something different, so then will tell you how it works in some of the most well-known brands by way of example. It is possible that the brand of your smartphone is not in this list, but you’ll still have that option.

The majority of manufacturers put the batteries in this aspect and, Android Lollipop (several companies even before), incorporate this simple and useful option. Probably we can count with the fingers of one hand the manufacturers that still do not incorporate, so if the brand of your mobile is not on this list, don’t worry, surely the steps to follow are very similar to those explained above, or to the following examples.
