Adding A Custom Notification/Ringtone Sound to your Galaxy S6
Jeffkillian.com initially started as a Geocities website when I was in 6th grade. Over the years, it has slowly evolved into a place where I can practice and become familiar with web development as it progresses. I started out coding with Microsoft Frontpage, then moved to Dreamweaver. Initially, there was very little coding, and it was all WYSIWYG. However, as I learned more, I could make it more interactive.


I incorporate drawings and blog posts to keep those that are interested updated. Through the evolution of the website, I was forced to learn HTML, PHP, CSS, XML, jQuery, javascript, and the handling of MySQL Databases. I've put online some code samples.
Adding A Custom Notification/Ringtone Sound to your Galaxy S6

Making the custom file available

1. Open the My Files application(The default file manager on Samsung devices). By default this is in the tools folder.
2. Under Local Storage, open the Device Storage option
3. Browse to the audio file, long press on it, tap MORE in the upper right, and select the Copy option
4. On the new screen that appears, under Local Storage, open the Device Storage option

5. Under Device Storage, find the "Notifications" folder (or Ringtones folder if you are adding a ringtone), open it, and tap PASTE HERE


Selecting it
6. Open up your phone's Settings
7. Under Device select Sounds and Notifications

8. Select Ringtones and Sounds

9. Tap either Ringtone or Default Notification Sound, depending on what you are changing

10. On the opened list, select your audio file to activate it.
