I have an option to change alarm or ringtone volume in Settings, but not notifications as I had in 4.3.

How can I change notification volume on Android 6.0 without changing ringtone volume?

I would prefer a solution that doesn't require root, but would accept one that requires root if it's impossible otherwise.

3rd-party app is acceptable if there's no way to do so in the OS.

I already considered a hack of setting ringtone to a very loud sound and notifications to artificially quiet sound file, please don't offer that as a "solution" since it doesn't allow adjustments.

  • GravityBox [MM] can do that well, but it also requires root access and Xposed framework.

  • AFAIK, it's already integrated on Marshmallow

    @AndrewT. - from the asnwer you linked: "ringer volume, alarm volume and media volume". No separate notification volume

  • Ah, I stand corrected. Don't know why I thought notification as media volume when reading this question.

I'm not aware of a native solution, but my app listing for Volume control has an app called Ringer & Notification Unlink. It requires root and the XPosed framework, but should do its job. From the app description:

Since ICS, Google has decided to link the volume of ringer and notification volume together. This Xposed module can separate the two streams as they were before ICS.

I have not tried it myself and especially cannot tell whether it works fine with Marshmallow – but the changelog for the latest version explicitly mentions it should: "support for Android 6".

    Not sure about the app but I recall reading that Xposed overall was fixed for 6.0. Thanks, I'll try this module out once I'm rooted

    Don't recall if I used that specific one, but I did use some xPosed plugin in the end, so I'm accepting this answer.

I have android 6. LG g4. When I change volume with my buttons there is a little gear to the right of the bar. If I press it there is a new window where there are separate bars for ringer, notification, & mediaenter image description here

  • Sorry, but stating that LGs (and Samsungs for that matter) have this option by default isn't helpful to general Android users. Aug 8, 2018 at 14:01
