Much like your iPhone, you can set a FaceTime ringtone as default for all incoming calls on your MacBook. The process to do so is quite simple and can be completed in just a couple of steps. Read along to find out how it is done!
Set the FaceTime ringtone on MacBook to the desired tune
We had already covered the method to make phone calls from Mac without an iPhone, earlier. Moving a step forward, we’ll see the process to change the default FaceTime ringtone to the one you want to use. By default, the choice for FaceTime ringtone is “Opening”, which also happens to be the default tune on iOS devices. However, with a little effort, it can be changed. Here’s how!
- Launch the FaceTime app.
- Select the FaceTime option, adjacent to the Apple menu.
- Chose the Preferences entry.
- Switch to the Settings tab.
- Locate the Ringtone drop-down menu.
- Select the desired ringtone.
It’s a simple change you can make to give your MacBook a more personalized touch so that you hear the same ringtone sound from your Mac whenever there’s incoming FaceTime audio or video call and routed to it via iPhone.
How to change the FaceTime ringtone?
Launch the FaceTime app from the dock.
Hover your mouse cursor (see how to adjust the mouse pointer size) in the upper-left corner of your computer screen. Click the FaceTime option next to the Apple menu.
Select the Preferences entry from the list of options displayed.
When the Preferences window opens, switch to the Settings tab as shown in the screenshot above. Locate the Ringtone drop-down menu.
When found, hit the drop-down button and select the desired option to set it as the new ringtone.
Likewise, you can change the ringtone or text tone for a specific caller. To do so, simply edit the caller’s contact card in Contacts.
Select a contact from the list and choose the Edit option. Then, locate the Ringtone drop-down menu under the contact’s name and choose the sound you want to hear when the contact calls you on your MacBook or sends you a message.
Hope that makes sense!
