When using the volume keys on the galaxy S6 it changes the volume of the ring tone only. However, when pressing the volume buttons I would expect the volume of both the ring tone and notifications to be affected.

Is there a way to link those two volumes in a way that both are changed when pressing the hardware volume buttons ?

My previous phone was a S3 and the volume keys were setting both volumes.


I don't think there is anything built in to the Android O/S to link/sync ringtone and notification volumes (for the Galaxy S6 anyways).

The best I've found (and currently using) is Volume Sync Pro by Plextab Software. It does exactly what you want with the up/down volume rocker button. It's a paid app though.

I've tried these free apps and they did not work for me.

  • volume Control + by Coffee Break Apps
  • Volume Sync by Jesta's Funhouse
  • Thanks for the suggestion. I think needing a paid app to achieve that is really bad though. It should be the default behavior of the volume button. – jmbouffard Jan 16 '16 at 17:25
