I'm have a OnePlus2 device and I can't seem to set a different ringtone other than those provided with the ROM (Oxygen OS 3.1.0). I can't see an option for it under Settings > Sound and Notification.

Am I missing something? Is there a way to set a ringtone without flashing a new Rom or adding some cheap app for it ?

  • Glad to read! If it solved your issue: Shall we close your question as duplicate to that? Or is there something to add, so you could write up an answer to your own question?

  • it may be a dupe of this android.stackexchange.com/questions/21293/…, the solution is the same but the questions are different.

As @Izzy hinted to check the tag wiki, I found this old answer

How do I set a custom MP3 as a ringtone for other notifications?

The answer said I should put the ringtone file at a certain directory in my SD card, that directory doesn't exist in my device but instead I noticed a ringtones directory that Hangouts created to insert it's own notification sounds.

I placed an mp3 file in there and now I can set it from Sound and Notification.

  • "that directory doesn't exist in my device": Simply create it :) See my answer here.

  • it was already created when hangouts inserted it's audio files there, or at least i think it did

  • Yupp – but there's more than one directory (one for ringtones, one for alarms, etc.) :)
