Volume control in Android

2012-11-30, 22:22 PM


One issue that I have with Android is that of volume control. Under normal operating conditions pressing the volume up/down buttons adjusts the ringer sound volume. Using these volume buttons effects only the sound volume that is active at the time: If you are listening to music it adjust media volume, if you are in a call it adjust call sound volume. We all should know this.


My problem is that when the phone is giving voice directions for navigation that the only time the volume buttons work for the navigation voice (media volume) is when the voice is actually active. In between voice navigations it goes back to default ringer volume.


This can be annoying and dangerous when driving and you try and bring up the volume of the voice navigation.


So two solutions:


If the default during navigation for volume button operation was media volume


Or if Smart actions could adjust media volume.
