Set Custom Ringtone and notification sound in android
Android is a awesome platform which can able to customize everything in it. Bored of using system notification sounds in your android mobile for any application. In this article, we will discuss about setting a custom ringtone for your android mobile. You can use any mp3 files or other supported music files as a ringtone for your mobile. I created this article, because I have faced a problem in my Samsung Galaxy Trend. I like Hike jingle sound from Hike Messenger application. So I download the mp3 file from the internet. After that I will notice that there is no option for setting custom notification tone. Then I found a option in ES File Explorer, which is a famous file manager for android platforms. Now let’s see about it.
