How to set a volume limit on your Android
3 Steps to setting your Android’s volume limit
Like most other smartphones, Androids can have different volumes for different notifications. In any given day, you may receive alerts about calls, emails, social media notifications, text messages, and more. Because sounds are so prevalent with these devices, it makes setting a volume max important. After all, you don’t want to scare your pets or jump out of your skin every time your phone rings!
- First, go to Settings. You can do this by swiping the notification panel down from the top and hitting the appropriate icon or manually finding the app in your drawer.
- In settings, click on Sound > Volume. Quick and easy!
- In this module, you’ll notice that there are different volume controls for different functions on the phone. There are sliders for a range of items: media, call, ring, and other alarm. Each of these different categories is allowed to have a separate and customized volume limit.
If you want to quickly change the volume of something you’re listening to, you can do so straight from the lock screen. Just tap the volume button and adjust the slider that comes up.
These volume controls may not seem like much, but it’s a nice feature to be able to set maximums across different categories. For instance, someone who has trouble getting up in the morning may want an extra-loud alarm. But they still may desire a lower volume for text notifications throughout the day. Use these steps to set volumes to your heart’s content to get the most out of your Android device.
