Galaxy S7 - How can I set a music file as a ringtone on my Samsung Galaxy S7?

Last Update date : 2017.01.27

Ringtones


Your device can turn songs or music files you have downloaded, such as MP3s, into custom ringtones. You can also assign personalized MP3 ringtones to your contacts.

Important: Music is under copyright protection and this applies to ringtones as well. You can only use a music song as a ringtone (i) if you can listen to the song directly from your smartphone and (ii) if the music file is stored on your device or a file hosting service linked to your smartphone (which proves you have the legal right to use it). It is not possible to use a music as a ringtone if you are listening to it from the Internet (from YouTube, for example) or a music streaming service (like Pandora or Deezer).

Note: The provided information refers to the devices sold in Canada. Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version (Android 6.0 Marshmallow for this FAQ).
