Wouldn’t it be nice if you can customize your Android alarm tone? Come to think of it, you may be able to choose from your default set of alarm tones but what if none of them works? They just aren’t noisy enough for you to be able to wake up on time and leave early for work. Well, you’re in luck because this guide is meant to teach you how to use your own Android alarm tone.
On your Android smartphone or tablet, go to your app drawer and open your file manager. Most Android devices have a default file manager but just in case, you can’t find any, you can download a third-party file management app from the Google Play Store (ex. AntTek Explorer).
On your file manager, find and select the song or music that you want to use as your Android alarm tone. Apparently, you can use any type of song. Just see to it that it can be played properly on your Android tablet or smartphone. For example, you can use Axel F’s “Crazy Frog” as your custom alarm tone.
Once you’re done choosing the song that you want, copy it (hold down the file and select “copy”) and then go to your file manager’s home directory (ex. /sdcard).
What you need to do next is to create a new folder under your home directory. Keep in mind that you need to rename your folder as “Alarms”. You can’t use any other folder names so better stick the rules. So let’s say that your home directory is at “/sdcard”, that would simply mean that your custom alarm sounds directory would be located at “/sdcard/Alarms”.
Go to your “Alarms” folder and paste the sound file that you copied from Step 3. Once you’re done, go back to your home screen and try to test your new custom Android alarm tone by setting up an alarm. Make sure to choose the file that you’ve recently placed on your “Alarms” folder as your alarm ringtone.
So that’s it. Now that you know how to customize your alarm tone, you no longer have any reason to be late for work.
