From 'Festive Ding Dong' to 'Holiday Jingle' and 'Holiday Ding Dong', there’s a handful of fun choices, although you’ll need a Ring Chime device to select one.

Once you have the app, selecting your new jingle is super easy, simply open the interface, click on the three lines located on the left hand side, choose ‘devices’, hit ‘chime’, then go to ‘audio settings’ and select ‘chime tones’.

Once you’re there, you should see the new Christmas tones, then all you need to do is pick one and hit save.

But now, a mum has shared that there are some even more exciting Christmassy settings on the Ring Doorbell.

One wrote: "I’m sorry but it sounds like Peter griffin."

Another agreed: "I’ve done this but I think he sounds more like Peter griffin."

Others have pointed out that although the sounds are enjoyable, there's a rather embarrassing downside.

One revealed: "We’ve got this on ours the postman’s face when it clicks in is funny."

While another claimed: "My husband has done this to ours ... not going to lie its embarrassing when the post woman is standing facing me and the grinch is talking."

You can now check out six Grinch Quick Replies, voiced by James Austin Johnson from Saturday Night Live.
