I have Android 2.1update1 and I installed Skype from the Android Market.

In many times when I use it to talk to other people using Skype the talking volume is too loud!

How can I turn it down a little bit?

I just didn't find any volume settings regarding Skype.

Use regular volume button on phone that you use for phone calls or music

    you mean the two volume adjusting buttons on my phones left side, that sets the "ringer volume"? - no, it has no effect. :( Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 17:46
  • What mobile phone you have? (I'm just wondering why you still on 2.1)

  • You have to adjust it during the call, not in the menus. Commented Aug 31, 2011 at 13:35

When i adjust volume in Skype, it tells me i'm adjusting the In-call volume, which is (believe it or not) the same volume setting used when you're in a regular phone call. If you can't adjust this through the settings, i'd try making a normal phone call, turning the volume down, then trying a call in Skype and seeing if the call sounds have changed.


New version of Skype uses system volume for calls. So change there in system preferences and volume in Skype will be changed too.

    I tried all sound adjusting settings in the menu, but with no luck. it's always the same sound volume (in a Skype Test Call). Where exactly is this "System Volume" in Android? please tell :) ty! Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 17:47
  • It depends on your Android version. Usually it is somewhere in Settings->Sound->Volume menu. Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 18:18

    "Android 2.1update1" - I tried all the "volume" adjustments in settings. i think this is a bug. :) Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 18:52
  • Try another firmware. Also if you use unofficial ROM, please clear everything you can during update. Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 22:24

    I use the offical firmware. I don't want to use un-offical, trojaned firmware. :P Commented Aug 13, 2011 at 16:47
