The plugin can be installed via Cordova-CLI and is publicly available on NPM.

$ cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-native-ringtones

Or install a specific version:

$ cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-native-ringtones@VERSION

Or install the latest head version:

The plugin creates the object cordova.plugins.NativeRingtones and is accessible after the deviceready event has been fired.

You can call the function getRingtone to get the ringtone list. There are two/three parameters for this function:

  1. successCallback function: The cordova plugin will pass the ringtone list by the success object and the ringtone list is put in an array, each object in this array represent a ringtone (with name, url and category).
  2. errorCallback function: The function that will be called if the getRingtone failed.
  3. (just for Android) An string value to indicate the ringtone type. There are three kinds of ringtones for Android: 'notification', 'alarm', 'ringtone'. The default value is 'notification'.
document.addEventListener('deviceready', function () {
        var ringtones;
        cordova.plugins.NativeRingtones.getRingtone(function(success) {
                ringtones = success;
            function(err) {
            //An object array contains all the ringtones
            setTimeout(function() { console.log(ringtones); }, 1000); 
}, false);

You can call the function playRingtone or stopRingtone to play or stop a ringtone by passing the URI of this ringtone. This plugin allow you to play both native ringtones and custom ringtones.

document.addEventListener('deviceready', function () {
        var ringtones;
}, false);
