How to Set Custom Ringtones for Specific Contacts in Android

Before we get started, you should be aware that the process may vary slightly between manufacturers and their respective custom skins. There’s no possible way we can show how to do it on every phone out there, but I’ll show how to do it on stock Android, Samsung, and LG devices—you should be able to at least get the idea from there.

This process varies slightly depending on the phone’s manufacturer and the software installed. Samsung's Contact app is pictured above.

How to Set Contact Ringtones on Android

  1. Go to the People app (also may be labelled Contacts) and select a contact
  2. In contact details, hit the Menu button (three vertical dots in the top-right corner) and choose Edit (this step may be unnecessary on your phone)
  3. Scroll down until you see Ringtone. Tap it and select a tone to play when they call.

Google Hangouts

  1. Select the name of a contact or choose an active Hangout (can be a group)
  2. Go to the Menu (three vertical dots) and choose ‘People & options’
  3. Change the message and video calling tone for that person or group
1. Just tap the little pencil icon to open the “Edit contact” menu. From there, tap on the three-dot overflow menu in the top right corner.


2. You see the option that reads “Set ringtone”? Yeah, that’s the one we’re looking for. Give it a tap.


3. This will open the Ringtones menu, where you can choose whichever tone you’d like for that contact. I happen to know for a fact that Barack is a huge metalhead, so I’m going to use In Flames’ “Through Oblivion” for his tone. He’ll love that.


4. After that, just hit the check mark next to the overflow menu.



5. And we’re done. Can’t wait for the next call I get from good ol’ B-rock.


That’s it. Done and done.

Setting custom ringtones in Android is a pretty straightforward and simple process. And once you’ve mastered the art of creating ringtones from your favorite songs, the possibilities are endless. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to create a few more contacts for people I pretend to know.
