My phone has Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)
even when it's on silent mode, some apps show audible video ads.

How can I mute the ads audio?

  • Well, I've never seen this happening... If I put my phone in DND (Do not Disturb), only alarms will have sound... How are you putting it to silent mode? – Leonardo Alves Machado Feb 19 '18 at 12:26
  • Yes, I set it to the (Do not Disturb) mode. Maybe the ad audio plays on media channel – Abdulrahman Bres Feb 19 '18 at 12:30
  • @Abdulrahman yes you definitely have to put media on silent, putting ringtone on silent won't help in this case – aBochur Feb 19 '18 at 18:07

Thanks to @aBochur's comment

It turned out that video ads use the media channel
I have muted the phone media and the ad audio was muted as well.

    I'm glad it worked! In the future, if your answer came from a comment, you can reply to that commenter, and ask them to post as an answer. – aBochur Feb 19 '18 at 18:56
  • Is there an app that does it automatically, and restores volume later? – android developer Jul 18 '19 at 9:03
  • @androiddeveloper I don't think so. Maybe you can develop one – Abdulrahman Bres Jul 18 '19 at 9:48
  • I know I can, but it's a lot of work... – android developer Jul 18 '19 at 14:16
