If you are a true Star Wars nerd like me, you can celebrate the theatrical release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens with these cool new BB-8 sounds that were just made available. BB-8, for those that didn’t know, is a new robot character in the saga.

Here’s how you can get BB-8 ringtones onto your Windows 10 Mobile device, like the recently released Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL. First, head over here and download the ringtones. The ringtones are in .m4r format and will be converted once you transfer them over to your Windows 10 Mobile device.

Plug in your Lumia device (in this example, we used the Lumia 950). Copy the ringtones into the ringtone folder via File Explorer (Open the phone in File Explorer, double click on Ringtones). Windows will ask you to convert the files before copying, select yes for each ringtone.

Now that you have copied over the ringtones, head over to Settings on your phone. Tap on Personalization and then tap on Sounds. Under the Ringtone drop-down, select one of your new BB-8 sounds.

You can also set one of these cool sounds as your default Messaging tone, simply scroll down until you see an option to “Manage App Sounds.” Tap on that and scroll down until you see the Messaging icon. Tap on that and you will be given the option to change your default sound for messaging notifications.
