About this app

Android 9 brought a lot of new features to our devices but in the same time, it brought an annoying drawback: The volume buttons control the media volume all the time and we have to perform multiple steps to change the ringtone and notification volume.

There is now a fix to this problem and it is called Volfix.

When Volfix is enabled, the volume buttons of your device will control the ringtone and notification volume by default. It will control the media volume while you are listening to any kind of sounds and it will control the "in call" volume while there is an ongoing call.

Volfix requires to be enabled as an accessibility service in order to listen for volume button press events and to map the buttons to control the ring and notification volume instead of media volume.

Please note that at the moment Volfix only works while the screen is on.

Fixes the volume button! I had a new phone about a year ago. Suddenly I thought it was broken because the volume button only seemed to control media. Finally I learned this was an Android update. How idiotic is that? At least give us the option to change it back! So yeah anyway this app fixed it and I'm super happy about it. I hardly ever need to mess with media volume but notifications I change all the time. The version I have doesn't ask for permissions not sure if the newest version does?

Definitely happy I found this app. Works as advertised on my Motorola g power 2022. Only gripe is that it periodically gets disabled somehow and i have to keep going back into the accessibility settings to re-enable it. Other than that, works great.

This app worked great on my pixel 6 pro. But I recently got rid of that phone and picked up a S22 Ultra. Now the app doesn't control my ringtone and notification tone at the same time anymore. Please fix this issue.

Hello, as far as we know, there is no need to use this app on Samsung devices. They have an option to change the default volume control so the app may even interfere with the default settings and we don't recommend using it. Kind regards

What's new

Disable Volfix while Spotify is active. This will allow you to control your Spotify connected devices while the app is opened and Volfix won't interfere.
