While the Custom Ringtone feature can be accessed from within WhatsApp on Android devices, iPhone users need to access the Contacts App to Set WhatsApp Custom Ringtones.
Set Custom Ringtones for WhatsApp Contacts on iPhone
The Custom Ringtone feature in WhatsApp can be used to differentiate important WhatsApp Contacts from all other Contacts.
For example, you can assign a Custom Ringtone to an important Contact on WhatsApp, so that you can immediately know that you are receiving a WhatsApp Call from this particular Contact.
Similarly, assigning a distinct Ringtone for all your Family members in WhatsApp can help in making sure that you do not miss important or emergency calls from your family members.
As mentioned above, the Custom Ringtone feature is not available in the iOS version of WhatsApp. However, you can still set custom ringtones for WhatsApp Contacts on iPhone using the iPhone Contacts App.
Assign Custom Ringtones for WhatsApp Contacts on iPhone
Follow the steps below to assign distinct or Custom Ringtones for individual Contacts on iPhone.
