How to set duration for a ringtone?

I want to set duration of ringtones. For example I want to stop it when it's played for 30 seconds. Do you have any idea how to do that? Because ringtones have no

method or something like that.

Uri alarmUri = RingtoneManager.getDefaultUri(RingtoneManager.TYPE_ALARM);
if (alarmUri == null) {
alarmUri = RingtoneManager.getDefaultUri(RingtoneManager.TYPE_NOTIFICATION);
Ringtone ringtone = RingtoneManager.getRingtone(context, alarmUri);;

Use a countDownTimer as:

new CountDownTimer(long millisInFuture, long countDownInterval) {

     public void onTick(long millisUntilFinished) {
         mTextField.setText("seconds remaining: " + millisUntilFinished / 1000);

     public void onFinish() {

You can use onTick and onFinish, so cancel the ringtone when timer finishes.

Hope this helps!
