There seems to be a lot of misinformation about the proper location and format for custom Ringtones, Notifications, and Alarms in Android and I'm wondering what is correct.
I've read that the path could be any one of the following:
Any of the Ringtone and Notification paths seem to work but nothing seems to work for Alarms.
Regardless of where the files are, Google Play Music still adds them to it's library unless a .nomedia file exists. The .nomedia file however hides the files from the Ringtone and Notification lists.
Is there a correct location for the 3 media types that will make them show in their respective lists and hide them from Google Play Music?
I'm running Lollipop 5.1.1 on an unrooted Nexus 4.
