    I no longer have the option to add specific ringtones to individual contacts. Does anyone know why this might have happened and how I might regain this capability? It used to be an option in the Contacts app.

    Hi, I think you start the tune you want playing in Google Music then select the menu, the option to assign as a ringtone to an individual is in there. Phil

    Nope, that doesn't work, although it use to. The problem us in the contacts app, no option to add ringtones.

    Hi again, try this, go to contacts, select the contact, at the top of the screen is a pen icon, select this and at the bottom of the screen is the "Ringtone" field, select this, it will bring up all the ringtones on your phone, at the bottom is "ADD" touch this and it should display all the music you have downloaded onto your phone, just select the tune you want and then select "Done" and then save on the next screen. Phil
    p.s. This is in Marshmallow

    Nope, the ringtone field is no longer there. It's just gone!
