VolumeSync syncs together your notification and media volumes

Sunday, September 10th, 2017

Slightly over a week ago, XKCD posted a comic highlighting Android's volume problem. Mainly that trying to turn down the media volume before media playback starts usually results in the ringer volume being changed instead. But as the old saying goes, "there's an app for that," and the app for this is VolumeSync.

 

As the name implies, this app will sync together your various volume levels. While the main use is to make the notification and media volume identical, you can sync up even more categories, like alarms and in-call audio.

Sunday, September 3rd, 2017

As I'm sure many of you know, Android has three distinct 'volumes' - one for media, one for the ringer, and one for alarms. Each has its own volume level, but unless you're playing media, adjusting the volume just changes the ringer - leading to the problem XKCD nailed in today's comic.

If you live under a rock, XKCD is an online comic strip famous for depicting relatable scenarios. For just about every situation you can imagine, especially tech-related ones, there is almost always a relevant XKCD strip.
