This would be fantastic. Windows phone did this and out really annoys me that I’ve constantly got to play games with this. Also, disable that damn “if you listen to music too loud” prompt after the first warning. I’m aware. I have it at max volume because that’s what my car needs to hear it properly. If you can remember what device you have prompted on, this prompt can go away. They may not realize it, but it’s far more dangerous while driving for me to fumble with my device trying to acknowledge this prompt and turn the volume back… Read more »

Since we are talking about android and audio, has anyone else recognized that sometimes, when an audio application (usually maps) ducks the volume of another app, in some scenarios that app never goes back to full volume until maps tries to duck again>?

Now I only need an option that ensures that my headphones really get disconnected when I turn them off. It sucks having to manually disconnect them every time when i want to use media controls on my other BT devices.

This is one great use I’ve found for Tasker.

Bluetooth is really old, I’m using it since 8 years at least but only recently we get amazing updates like fastpair or this. Why does it took iPhone ditching the audio jack for Android to invent such amazing life improvements.

Does the s9 already do this? I feel like it does but iv never checked

Well this is a great idea it doesn’t solve the number one problem that I have in this area which is the other device doesn’t remember the volume level.

In all of my cars a2dp volume levels are about 1/4 of what FM radio is, so if I’m listening to through my phone which I’m doing 90% of the time and then switch to the radio it results in a massively loud volume blast.

This isn’t something that Android can fix.

Yes, but will it remember that music playback was *stopped* and not just paused so that reconnecting to a device or terminating an interrupt (like a call) doesn’t automatically re-start the previous program?

I could’ve sworn this was already a feature. One of my old phones (pixel XL or n6p) used to do this but all of sudden stopped and I missed it

You can install an app like Macrodroid to have ultimate control on the level of volumes upon disconnection and connection of audio on Bluetooth devices.

I always assumed you want Bluetooth volume at 100% all the time and just control the volume control each device? Is there a reason not to do that?

wish iOS did the same lol. can’t tell u how many times reconnected my speakers just to have me ears destroyed.

Next we need to find a solution to every podcast on the planet being way too quiet, resulting in my ears getting blown out when a music player decides to start up the next time I turn my car on.

Oh please yes. I keep forgetting to check that my headphones are not at max volume and deafen myself at least once a week.

YAAAY another incredibly MINOR new feature, meanwhile something that would massively increase productivity, like an “undo” function, when you’ve written a full page of text is GONE…….is still missing from Android. BUT OMGZZ MUH CORRECT VOLUMEZ.

I SWEAR Apple and Android are not adding the best features from each other’s platforms out of a cruel sense of humour -_-

I can stop using Tasker to set the vol when it is connected to my car.

I think we’ve got a point where android interface is just about perfect. Now it’s time to work on the little things like this, making auto brightness more fluid, switching to 4g when wifi is too weak (but still connected) and shit like that. Features that no one will notice, but will increase the quality of life greatly.

This would be nice. I’ve had to set up Tasker profiles for each bluetooth device to get this functionality, it’d be nice if it were built in..

On the upside, Obiwan says “Another happy landing” every time I disconnect from the car’s bluetooth

This is great. But can we please also get per-app volume control?

Well.. better than never. Just like Bluetooth device battery – implemented way too late

I just wish my car did. I’ve never had a car that didn’t have a ridiculously low volume for BT, and then when the device disconnects (or I removed the USB for Android auto) it’s like a orchestra starts up on full volume on the other inputs.

My s8+ has the worst bluetooth. Used the same pair of headphones with my iPhone 6s and paired seamlessly and magically. My s8+ makes me sync it 50% of the time. Half the time I’m waiting 30 seconds for my bluetooth to just turn on. Then sometimes it connects but it’s not actually connected so I have to turn everything off and on again. THEN if I’m lucky, it connects. Tried using bluetooth speaker for workout. After 5 minutes of trying to find my speaker on my s8+, I just gave up. I recall reading an article about how amazing… Read more »

It doesn’t already? I’m sure my car is always on full but my shower speaker is ~75%. Maybe I need to check it.

Can Android P also be the first version of Android to not immediately try connecting to devices when bluetooth is turned on?

My old Samsung Galaxy s6 had this feature… One of the few things I miss since switching to a 2 XL.

But would it automatically lower the volume each reboot to protect hearing?

This is great, Bluetooth on android is lacking, personally I just wish it would send album art to my car. My buddy’s iPhone can do it, why cant my pixel?

That’s great and all but can we instead have the “listening to loud volumes hurts” message removed?

My Sony X Compact just goes to max volume on every time I connect to a bluetooth device. Pretty horrible “feature”.

Finally! It’s taken long enough for this. I’m currently using a Bluetooth volume control app that works fine, but it would be even better if this was just built-in.

Finally, it isn’t nice when i use bluetooth in car at max volume and after that i connect to headphones.

Literally only last week I was wondering if this would ever be a thing on Android so I’m really liking this. My bluetooth earphone volume is quite high when I’m out and about but then when I get home and reconnect to my bluetooth speaker I continuously forget to lower the volume. ._.

Finally. In the meantime, I use Automagic for a custom workflow that lowers the volume on connect in my car.

How about prioritizing connections? Like if I’m on my headset but if you detect my car’s Bluetooth you automatically switch to that?

I just got an S9 and it is the first device I’ve had that does this and it was a bit of a revelation. This is the kind of thoughtful thing Android is kind of slow to implement, unfortunately.

This is one of the small but amazingn features I love on my iPhone. It knows to keep my car Bluetooth at max, but to keep the UE Boom in my shower at 1/4 volume so I don’t go deaf. Only critique there being it seems to adjust the volume AFTER starting to send audio, so I’ll get a split second of super loud before it adjusts itself.
