Although Marshmallow Android provides users with the ability to control the sound of the operating system and applications, always the alternative programs designed for different tasks are complete and better. You may also want to have more precise control over the sound flow of Android and control the volume of each application individually. One of the most important uses of such programs is to mute the program notifications while you receive them. For example, you are listening to your favorite music, but you do not want to hear the sound of notifications. In this tutorial, we will introduce a program to you that does this for you and can adjust the volume of each application. We will also show you how to mute each app separately and how to turn off all notifications.
This program is called App Volume Control and is considered one of the best notification management tools. This program is more popular among users, and so far, no specific problem or bug has been reported.
How to use App Volume Control
- First, download and install the App Volume Control app, which has two free and premium versions.
- Once the program is installed, it will ask you to enable the necessary permissions.
- So touch the settings shortcut displayed to enter the required settings.
- Enable the App Volume Control Service option in the displayed settings.
- To activate the license, you will be shown a message that you must confirm
- After completing these steps, a list of all your applications should be displayed in the App Volume Control. Touch to create settings for each app.
- Here, we have selected the Google Play Music app. As you can see, the system sound of this program has been completely cut off, and we have increased the music playback volume as much as possible.
- Another feature in the app is restoring previous sound settings. For example, you can enable the Restore old settings option in the When closed tab to automatically reset the settings to pre-run when you close a program.
Mute all sounds on Samsung Galaxy series phones
Mute all sounds is one of the most interesting features of the Samsung Galaxy series Android phones, which allows you to disable all sounds, including ringtones and notifications, system, and media volume. Sometimes you may be in a situation where you need to make no sound from your phone speakers. You can use the silent mode feature in this situation. Of course, the silent mode feature on Android devices has a problem, and that is that when the Volume up button is pressed, it gets out of this mode. So if the phone is in your pocket, you may subconsciously press the button and exit the silent mode. Music and movies will also be played if silent mode is enabled.
Fortunately, the Samsung Galaxy series phones have a feature called Turn off all sounds, which, when activated, will no longer play sound from your phone speakers under any circumstances. We will teach you how to activate the Turn off all sounds feature in the following.
Tutorial to enable the ability to mute all sounds on Samsung phones: The Android version that Samsung has released on its phones is much more professional in software and with more capabilities than Google's raw Android. If we want to mention one of these features, we can name the feature (Turn off all sounds). This feature is available in the Accessibility section, and by activating it, you can disable the phone's speakers so that no sound is played from them. To enable this feature do the followings:
- First, go to Settings.
- Go to the Accessibility section.
- Then go to Hearing enhancements.
- Now enable the Mute all sounds option.
- (It should be noted that you can also add a shortcut to the main page by referring to the Mute All Sounds section.)
Turn off the sound completely on Samsung phones with a lower Android version
Step 1: First, go to the application list and tap Settings.
Step 2: In the settings, find the Accessibility section and refer to it.
Step 3: In this step, refer to the Hearing section.
Last step: Finally, enable the Turn off all sounds option.
That's it, and by following the steps above, your phone's speaker will turn off until the Turn off all sounds option is enabled, and under no circumstances will that sound be played. Just disable the Turn off all sounds option from the Hearing section to reactivate it.
