To use your own music such as MP3 music for ringtones, notifications and alarms on your Redmi, follow the steps below :
- Connect your Redmi to your PC using the USB cable.
- Use the Windows Explorer and access the phone storage. Here, you should see quite a number of folders being created by default.
- Transfer (or copy and paste) your custom music files to the Music or Ringtones folder. It really doesn’t matter which folder you use. In fact, you can also create a new folder to store these files.
- On your phone, find and launch the Settings app.
- Tap General Settings.
- Tap Sound.
- Tap Phone ringtone. Note: To change message and notification tones, kindly select the option accordingly.
- On the Select tone screen, tap Custom.
- Tap Select track.
- Select a music title, then hit OK.
Note: The steps here were written for Android 4.2.2 on a Redmi (HM1W). If you’re having a different model of Redmi or other version of Android, there’s a possibility that the steps and screenshots will be different.

Is redmi 1S allow .wav file as a ringtone?
b’coz .wav ringtones stored on my SD card are not shown in the tracks.
I tested on my Redmi running MIUI V5. .Wav ringtone works.
Go to the Music app > Menu button > Settings > Filter Files section to turn off filter by size and duration, also check filter by folder is appropriately configured.
Try “Tone Selector (Ringtone/Alarm)” to custom music as Ringtone
Why can not I put half song as a ringtone?Please help me solve this problem … I tried to copy the songs from your computer but still can not find that half song..TQ
What format is the music file ? If you have successfully copied over but not being shown in the selection it’s most probably due to filter. Launch the Music app > tap Menu button > Settings > turn off Filter by size,Filter by duration and Filter by folder.
Thanks for good info but as always the most easy case;)
Please explain how to change the alarm tone
I experience the same problem. When I get to step 9 (Select track, no tracks are displayed. I have already saved some music to each of the folders for test (phone music, phone ringtones, phone media audio notification & sd media). I can see the files by using the Explorer on the phone desktop, but the built in Music player does not display any of the files. Advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
On your Redmi, launch the Music app > tap Menu button > Settings > turn off Filter by size and Filter by duration.
thanks alot Ethan
Problem downloading mp3 from PC to phone(Redmi 1s)
Error that show on my PC : your device might not able to play or view this file
After transfer, manage to read the file at Explorer, but when go to Setting->Sound->Select Track-> browse (empty/no track)
What the actual causes?
If you can’t see the music files that you’ve just transferred over from your PC, try disabling the filters in the Music app settings.
I tried copying a few mp3s into the “Ringtone” folder in the phone memory as well as SD card. No joy. Even after reboot. Could it be Im using a Mac to transfer to my Redmi?
Sorry, I don’t know what’s the actual problem you’re facing. Anyway, if you can see those mp3s on your Music app, you can long tap a mp3, tap More and select Use as phone ringtone to make that particular mp3 as your ringtone.
I found a solution, it might be that your mp3 is very sort (1 sec to 3 seconds or so) it will not display, so go to music (home) >open the menu > settings > close the filter by size & duration.
this should help
