Nokia updates Ringtone Maker Beta, extends ringtone length to 60 seconds

Ringtone Maker

Nokia has once again updated its beta version of the Ringtone Maker app for Windows Phone. The company only recently published an update to the beta that included support for more file formats, but today we're looking at longer ringtones. The team has bumped the ringtone length from just 30 seconds to 60, which will allow consumers to create longer clips from their favourite songs.

As well as the extension, version also includes numerous bug fixes. You can download Ringtone Maker Beta from the Windows Phone Store, but be sure to head on over to Nokia Beta Labs for more details and to register for the trial (listed for Windows Phone 8 only).

So today i was watching an 18+ video on my nokia lumia 820. And my bluetooth was by chance turned on. My sister was in the other room working on laptop. When played the video i was unable to hear anything. I turned the volume full but nothing happened. Later i realized my phone was automatically got connected to laptops bluetooth. And all my audio was playing there.
p.s. this is just an hypothetical situation, never happened to me. But what would you do if that happens. So be carefull. Hahaha

pranav rai says:

How exactly is that "hypothetical" situation related to this article, or the comment you replied to?

jonchai says:

He's trying to let his fantasies run wild in the board.

Amazing Nokia, Nokia does some things what Microsoft should have had on WP when it was launched.. All hail Microsoft and Nokia, plz be faster, thank u bye bye

tribexx says:

Where are CUSTOM ALERTS????

I'm hungry, I feel like going to mcdonalds, bye bye

RyanAMG says:

McDonalds sounds good but my Black 928 is on a delivery truck have to stay at home. Can't wait any longer :)

Credo93 says:

I wish you all of luckk and a good time with your new phone!

willied says:

McDonald's? Gross.

Residing says:

Custom alerts - isn't this a function of the OS?

tribexx says:

You can do custom ringtones, but not custom alerts.

pranav rai says:

No. It is indeed a function of the OS.

Residing says:

Thank you :)

Residing says:

I know that you can do custom ringtones, that what this app is for!  You asked earlier about custom alerts.  My question was if custom alerts was a function of the OS? 

tribexx says:

I will go slower...
You have to choose only from the alerts provided by Nokia/MS. Take a look at the other commentors in this article. They want it too.
custom ringtones - yes
custom alerts (for email, text) - no

Residing says:

I will go slower for you - Custom alerts are a function of the OS, yes or no? If yes, then what does that have to do with Nokia if it is Microsoft's responsibility to implement it? I am not concerned with how many people want this feature; just if it is a function that has to be implemented via the OS.

Hope that was slow enough for you.

BobcatRidge says:

+1  I agreee, the bigest missing feature is custome alerts!

still a joke that i cant change my sms alert to a custom sound...

I wish the beta app would not even list all of my DRM content. Takes me forever to figure out which songs can be used

Credo93 says:

Can't see the update in Belgium yet.

Payam ACE says:

No love for WP 7.8? :(

U want WP 7.8 love? Here it is: <3 <3 <3

Seriously, Nokia will release that on windows phone 7 too as soon beta is over, so no worries

Payam ACE says:

yeah hopefully

hold on, isn't that an OS level change?

CronGM says:

Fade in/out effects, please? :)

Thanks once again Nokia. I think its better for microsoft to handover the windowsphone to Nokia.

rmichael75 says:

I agree..Hand it over to Nokia and fund it.:)

Residing says:

Lol!  Well, I don't think Joe Belfiore would be happy about having to give his baby up for adoption :)

Ultimateone says:

WPcentral should do a story about no custom text tones or alerts, its been the number one suggestion on Microsofts site for over a year now

mrshamoozoo says:

+920 i completely agree. Please Daniel or Rich, if your reading, please contact Nokia or Microsoft for an official answer. We need custom tones ASAP. I don't care about double tap to wake the screen, i wanna change my text tone so me and my other wp8 roommates can differentiate between phones!

What's the difference between this APP and the original Ringtone Maker???
They look identical...

Micah Dawson says:

This app is ringtone maker beta but the one I have on my phone from Nokia is ringtone maker. Confusing.

Steephill says:

Confused here as well, I've just kept the old one.

Unfortunately by the time that custom ringtones became available (I remember downloading them on my flip phone back around 2000) I was too old for custom ringtones. And by too old I mean older than 21.

smontoya2 says:

Haha! Was tinkering with this the other day on my 928 (Loving It!) & thought doesn't WP support up to 40 sec. Now this is even better. Glad I bought a Nokia Lumia!

Rico says:

I've never been able to use this, even after reinstalling. I've downloaded a number of DRM free mp3s as part of my Zune Pass. It sees the albums, but not yhe songs.

bilal soomro says:

Which one Symbian or Windows Phone.

sinister1 says:

Good job Nokia!!! Now for the love of God, Please make it so we can use them for Emails, SMS and MMS.. Please!!!!!

Heavy Rain says:

Why do you need a 60 second ringtone..?
