Earlier this year in July, we discovered a new feature called Ramping Ringer exclusive to Pixel phones on Android 10. The feature essentially vibrates the phone for a few seconds before gradually increasing the ringtone volume for incoming calls. Google officially rolled out the feature early last month, however, it was still limited to Pixel devices. In case you have a Pixel device, I’m sure you’ve already spotted the new feature in the Sound settings. But for those of you who don’t, I have some good news. Ring Master is a new app from XDA Senior Member Apptuners that allows you to set up a similar ringtone experience on your phone.

The app works almost exactly like the Ramping Ringer feature and vibrates your device for a couple of seconds before gradually increasing the ringtone volume when you receive an incoming call. But, unlike the feature on Pixel device, Ring Master has a few tricks up its sleeve. The app gives you complete customization access and lets you set a custom vibrate duration, ringer duration, and volume percentage. On top of that, the app even works for incoming calls on messenger apps like WhatsApp or Google Duo, something that Ramping Ringer currently doesn’t support. I tried the app on my Galaxy S10e and it seems to work flawlessly for both phone calls and WhatsApp calls.

You can try it out for yourself by downloading it from the link below. The app is free to use if you use it in its default configuration. But if you wish to use any of the customization options, you’ll have to upgrade to the Pro version. On the bright side, Ring Master lets you try the configurations before you go ahead and make the purchase which is definitely a nice touch.
