Hey guys, does anyone know how to change the incoming ringtone on incoming calls on my mac. It's said that the ringtone should match the ringtone assigned to your contact on the iPhone. But it's not the case. Any suggestions?

It is at the bottom of the settings screen in FaceTime preferences.

Excellent. Is that new for Yosemite? I don't recall that option in Mavericks.
Yep... it is part of the Handoff/Continuity business so you can receive incoming calls on your Mac. I played with it a little today and it works really well.

That's how to change the global ringtone. The OP wants to have it use the ringtones assigned for contacts. Unfortunately I don't believe it's possible, maybe a third party will add it in.

Also, there's already a thread for this: Custom ringtones in Facetime (Yosemite)
I may be misreading, but it sounds like OP is just asking how to change the incoming ringtone period. I think OP only mentioned Contacts as he was misdirected there for the setting.

I just hadn't looked there before to see if it was an option. Now I can have the iPhone, iPad and Mac's all using the same tone.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I guess what I'm saying is that, in my iPhone I have one ringtone set for everyone on my contacts list. All the same ringtone. But when i get incoming calls on the mac, a ringtone i don't use goes off.

Awesome thanks!! That worked, it was just set at a default ringtone.
