If you are a user of the Amazon Music app, you may occasionally download music. Additionally, you might want to use that downloaded music as a ringtone on your phone! If so, we definitely understand. We are going to tell you how to do just that in this guide.
The Amazon Music app allows you to listen to music ad-free with your Amazon Prime membership. You can listen to music offline as well. You can skip an unlimited number of songs. You also have hands-free listening on all of your favorite devices. Of course, with Amazon Music Unlimited you also get unlimited access to 50 million songs. You can listen to new releases as well. You get thousands of music stations and you can also create playlists like "All Hits" and "Rap Rotation". Finally, you are able to listen to music you have purchased from Amazon as well. Those include MP3s and AutoRip CDs/Vinyl as well.
Ok, are you ready to proceed with the guide? That's excellent! You will need your Amazon Music app login information to proceed further. This is your Amazon email address and password. Do you have that information? Great! Let's proceed:
1) Open the Amazon music app. Click "log in" and enter your Amazon email address and password to log in.
2) After you are logged in, if you have an Android phone, you first want to download the music file. You can use a file manager app to then move the music file to the "Ringtones" directory within your main user directory. You can navigate on your phone to "Settings" and search for "Ringtone". Under Sound => Phone Ringtone you will now be able to select your downloaded file as a ringtone.
3) You can also use the Amazon Music website to download the music to your computer. If you are doing that, you will want to use a USB cord and use Windows Explorer to drag the file from your personal computer to your android phone's Ringtones directory. You will then proceed with step #2 above.
4) On Android, you are also to use the app Ringdroid to edit the music file after you download it if you would like to use only part of the audio file as a ringtone and not the entire music file.
5) If you are using iOS and an iPhone, the steps are a little bit different. You are going to download the file to your computer using the Amazon Music website. You are then going to transfer that music file to your iTunes Music Library.
6) If your song is over 30 seconds, you are going to want to right-click on the song and click "Song Info". Next, go to the "Options" tab of the window that appears and set the 30-second time span in the "Start" and "Stop" section. Then, click "Ok" at the bottom of the window. You have successfully cropped your song. After that, go to File => Convert => Convert to AAC version. Copy your AAC version to your iTunes library. You'll need that version going forward.
7) Change the file extension of your AAC file from .m4a to .m4r and drag that file to your "Tones" tab iTunes under "On My Device". Then, after syncing with your iPhone, set your ringtone on your iPhone under Settings => Sounds & Haptics => Ringtone.
8) If you still need help with this, please head on over to our dedicated Amazon Music contact page and we will put you in touch with a human in Amazon's customer service department directly.
