Whether you’re going to watch a video or just need to make the ringtone louder, you’re always going to be adjusting the volume on your device. When you make such changes, you obviously want to make the process as fast as possible.
There are various Android volume control apps that can help you, regardless of whether you want faster access to it or to lock an app’s volume at a certain level. There’s an app for just about everything these days.
1. App Volume Control
App Volume Control is a great choice if you want different apps to have distinct volume settings. When you first open the app, you’ll see a list of all the other apps that are installed on your Android device. Toggle on the first app where you want to adjust the volume setting.
You’ll be taken to a different part of the settings where you can adjust the volume level for the different situations where the app might be used. For example, you can change the media, ring, notification, and system volume whenever that app is used on speaker.
You can also adjust the volume levels when that app is used on a headset and on Bluetooth. You’ll be able to easily find any desired app since App Volume Control divides the apps into two sections: Installed Apps and System Apps.
2. Volume Control Widget
Not everyone may be looking for an app with a lot of features. Just as long as it covers the basics, it’s good. Volume Control Widget has a basic widget that will allow you to control the volume of your alarm, multimedia, voice calls, and the ringer as well.
The design is not the greatest, but it does a good job of covering the basics. Once the app is installed, go to a space that’s big enough for the widget, and press the widget option at the bottom. Drag the app’s widget to the free area. You can make the widget as big or small as you want.
3. Volume Control
Volume Control is one very feature-rich app that will give you full control over the volume settings. For example, by swiping down from the top of the display, you’ll see the volume settings for the alarm, multimedia, notifications, ringer, system, calls, and Bluetooth.
Just tap on the option whose volume you want to change and adjust the volume with the slider that’ll appear. By opening the app and tapping on the alarm option (for example), a small drop-down menu will appear that’ll allow you to change the alarm tone and lock the volume at a certain level.
You can even create presets by tapping on the tab with that name and selecting the plus sign at the bottom-right. The app will already have four created for you: Appointment, Default, Night, and Silent.
4. Precise Volume (+EQ/Booster)
Other apps may show you all the volume options it can change. With Precise Volume, you can decide what will show up on that list. If you only want the list to show the volume setting for the alarm and the ringtone, it can be done.
Tap on the pencil icon beside the option that says “Example Preset,” and select the “Add More Volume” option. A new window will appear where you can check the box of the options you want to see on the volume list.
By going into the app’s settings, you can also set the volume limits when you’re using a headphone on your Android device. If you have other audio apps installed, you can also take advantage of the equalizer to improve the audio.
5. Volume Lock and Mute
Volume Lock and Mute will also keep things simple when it comes to features. You can set the app up to your liking by simply going to Settings. There you can do things such as lock your current volume settings or create new ones.
With this app you’ll need to go into your device’s settings and set the volume levels. You can’t change them from within the app. Go to the app and check the box of what you want to lock. Don’t forget to activate the app so your settings are saved.
If you want to use the app in another language, you have quite a list to choose from. You can use the app in Spanish, Italian, German, French and many more!
When you have the volume locked at a certain level, you don’t have to deal with volume surprises. The next time you want to watch a video at a certain level, you won’t have to realize that someone changed your volume settings. What apps do you use to keep your volume levels controlled?
