If you have been hearing the same tone for all of your incoming calls and notifications on your smartphone, you must have gotten bored with it by now. No matter how great a tone is, if you keep hearing it for a long time it is sure to bore you, and you will eventually change it to something else down the road, and that cycle will continue.
As long as you have an Android device you do not need to manually change sounds for calls and notifications, as there is now an app that lets you randomize these calls and notification sounds on your device. That way you will get to hear a different sound each time you get a call or a text message on your device. That should keep you from getting bored, and if that sounds good to you, read on to learn how you can get it working on your device.
Making an Android Device Play Random Sounds for Calls and Notifications
The app that you are going to use is called RandTune, and it is available for free on the Google Play store. Here’s how it works.
1. Head over to the Google Play store, and download and install the RandTune app.
2. Launch the app after it is installed.
3. On the main screen of the app, you should see two sections. The first one is for call sounds, and the second one is for notification sounds.
Let us first add sounds for calls. To do that click the plus icon in the bottom of the screen.
4. You should now see three buttons on your screen. Tap the one on the right that lets you select a directory and all the music files inside it to be randomly played for your calls.
5. Navigate to the directory where you have saved all the music files to be used with the app. Select the directory and tap on “Select Directory.”.
6. All of the music files residing in the selected directory should show up on the app’s main interface. Checkmark all that you wish to use, and leave the others unchecked. You can tap the trash icon next to the music file to remove that file from the list.
7. That was how to randomize sounds for the incoming calls on your device. To set up the same for the notifications, tap on the second section in the app that lets you choose music files for the notifications on your device.
Tap the plus icon, tap on the option on the right, and select the directory where the music files are located for the app to import it.
Now wait for your device to receive some calls or notifications, and you will hear a different sound for each of the calls/notifications.
Why should we not randomize the calls and notification sounds on our devices? The guide above helps you do exactly that.
