In order to make it simpler for consumers to fine-tune their audio settings, Google has revealed that the most recent Android 13 QPR3 or 14 release would provide an additional dial for Ringtone and Notification volume.

Users had to use a single slider in prior Android releases to adjust the volume of both ringtones and notifications. However, there are signs that this might change in upcoming OS system updates.

It’s unknown whether the notification/ringtone volume change will eventually be incorporated into Android 13 QPR3 or Android 14’s June stable release, according to the article.In the meantime, Google has made available to developers and early adopters the first public beta of Android 14 with enhanced capabilities targeted at network navigation, privacy, performance, and user customization.
