Caller Tunes is a great feature that lets your callers listen to a pre-selected section of a song of your choice while they wait for you to pick up the phone. Listening to a song while waiting may be a more enjoyable experience for some compared to listening to the classic ringtone endlessly.
Caller ID melodies used to be a paid feature but now they are offered for free by all major telecom operators in India. This is how you can set a free call melody on your Airtel, Jio numbers. Keep in mind that caller tunes are not free on Vodafone Idea. Note that you will need an active internet connection for this, so make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi or mobile data.
