How to use a ringtone video on Huawei

We are long gone from those “polytonic” times when having a popular song that sounds on the radio as a ringtone seemed the most. Over time, we can use any song we have on our smartphone, and even a video that plays when someone calls us.

We will teach you how to do it if you have a mobile Huawei.

Put a video as a ringtone on your Huawei

General ringtone

If you want every time someone calls you, always play the same videoThe steps you must follow are these:

  1. Go to Settings> Sounds
  2. Select the Ringtone> Video as Ringtone option
  3. Choose the video you want from the ones stored on your mobile
  4. You can see a preview of how the video looks
  5. Press Accept


If the video has been recorded vertically, you will see how when you are called it will appear occupying the entire screen. However, if the video is recorded horizontally, they will appear at the top and bottom two black stripes so that the video is not deformed.

Assign a video to a contact

There’s also the possibility that you don’t want to use a video as a ringtone at all times, but only when a specific person calls you. To do this you just have to assign that tone to the contact you want, which you can do through the following steps:

  1. Enter the Contacts app
  2. Find the contact you want to add the video to
  3. Enter the Default Tone section
  4. Choose Video as Ringtone
  5. Select the video what you wish

In this way, the tone that we have chosen will be available only for the contact that we have selected. When any other person calls us, the tone will be the one assigned by default.

What if my mobile is not Huawei?

The operating system used by Huawei mobiles is Emui, which is based on Android but has a layer of customization. So it has a few options that we may not find on other devices. Some other brand may have a similar option so you can use a video as a tone, but the process may be a little different. We must remember that this is not an Android function, but something typical of the Chinese brand.

Are there any downsides to using a video as a ringtone?

The only problem you may encounter in the event that you want to use a video as a ringtone is that, when it is played every time you are called, it may consume a little more battery.

But it is something that can only be a problem if you receive calls very frequently. If this is not the case, in principle you should not have more difficulties.
