  5. To add a new ringtone, tap the Plus icon located on the upper-rightmost corner.

    A new screen named Sound picker will open next. 
    On this screen, you will see a list of audio clips you can add and set as a new ringtone on your device.

    Tapping on any of these clips will trigger it to play.
    Playing of individual clips is recommended as it will help you decide on which audio file to select.

    It's the same concept as viewing a preview before watching the entire show.

    To proceed with this demo, let's just go and search under the default tab which is Tracks.
