Since the capability was first introduced, custom ringtones have become a perennially popular part of the modern mobile phone. Starting with the novelty tunes embedded into feature phones at the turn of the millennium, users in the present comparatively have the capability to produce veritable symphonies that announce themselves to the world.
Well aware of this, Microsoft has now added the ability to set custom ringtones for Skype on Android, as detailed on an official blog post.
