So I just downloaded some Pokemon ringtones and they're saved as MP3s. I do not want them to show up in the play music app. I moved then to the ringtones folder with the Hangouts sounds but that didn't remove them from play music. Can anyone help me out with this?

Re: MP3 files and Google Play Music

You could use a file manager app like ES File Explorer and create a blank file titled ".nomedia" in the folder that you want to hide from Google Play Music. That will instruct the Media Scanner to ignore that folder when scanning for media files. I'm not sure, though, if that will make the system ignore that folder for ringtones as well.
