Setting Different Volume Levels for Different Audio Sources
Android enables you to set different volume levels for media playback, ringtones and notifications, and alarms. You can adjust the levels to make sure that notifications don’t swamp the music you’re enjoying and that alarms are loud enough to wake you or get your attention.
Here’s how to set different audio levels for different audio sources:
- Open the Settings app.
- Tap the Sound button in the Device section to display the Sound screen.
Tap the Volumes button to display the Volumes dialog box (see Figure 1.2).
FIGURE 1.2 Drag the sliders in the Volumes dialog box to set the relative volumes for media playback, ringtones and notifications, and alarms.
- Drag the sliders for Music, Video, Games, & Other Media; Ringtone & Notifications; and Alarms.
- Tap the OK button.
