How to turn any song into a ringtone on your Android phone

There are a million cool things to do with your smartphone, but sometimes the simplest tricks are the best. In the guide below, we'll show you how to turn any song into a ringtone for your Android phone, ready to be assigned it to your best friends, family or colleagues.  

To do this, we'll be using an app called Ringdroid, which allows you to use any sound or song 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.

Ringdroid Install on Google Play

To turn a song into a ringtone, you have to have the audio files or music you wish to use on your smartphone's internal storage or the microSD card. Ringdroid is compatible with MP3, WAV, AAC and AMR audio files, and can create custom alarms and notifications as well as ringtones.

1. Locate Ringdroid on your phone and tap it.

2. The app will launch and you will find a list of songs on your device in the main window of the app. To view all the sounds on your device, hit the action icon in the top-right corner, and choose Show all audio.

3. Select the song you would like to use as a ringtone.

4. Once you have selected a song, its waveform will open up. Use the two sliders above and below the graph to choose a start and end point for your ringtone.

5. Finally, save the sound clip by pressing the disk icon. You can rename it if you wish, and specify which type of alert you want to use it for (the default option is ringtone).

All the ringtones that you create will be stored in the app’s main overview. If you have a lot of songs in your device, you can search through them with the magnifying glass icon.

    Great app. Before I am using Apowersoft Phone Manager to transfer and set ringtones for my Android, but it can only set what I stored in my phone and cannot slip directly as it is a phone manage tool not a ringtone tool. But now, I will try this app to design and set my ringtones.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    I have recently downloaded this app from app store and was confused how to use it after reading this article I'm now able to use it to get my favourite songs as ringtones.

    Please take a look this app, LastTUBE.

    It can download ringtone(also mp3, videos) from Youtube directly to smartphone.
    And it can be edited by Ringdroid app.

    google it "lasttube2"

    Thanks in advance.

  • Works great except I wish I could use the tone for notifications as well. The only options it gives you is default ringer and contact ringer. What happened to notifications?

  • I had this on my device in 2013 but removed it because WM Player converts my CD tracks into WMAs and it didn't work with those.

    I have been using this app for a fair time. It works well, easy to use. Brilliant.

  • My Avast app said Ringdroid wanted to access my microphone. I read on Drippler that when Facebook did this with their music app, they accidentally (or not) also recorded users through the microphone. Could this happen with this app? Thanks!

  • Great app, thanks for sharing!
