How to Set a Volume Limit on an Android Device

Your Android device has different volume levels for sounds and noises that play from it. You can set different levels for things like notifications from social media websites, texts, and more. You can also set the volume limit for things like music and videos. Follow these easy steps to set the volume limit on your Android device.

Step 1: Go to and select Settings. There are multiple ways to access Settings including swiping the notification panel down from the top and tapping the icon or finding the app in your drawer. Either way, you can open your Settings menu.

Step 2: In the Settings menu, select Sounds > Volumes.

Step 3: You will now see that there are different volume controls for different functions. On the right side of your screen, you will see sliders for 1) Music, video, games, and other media, 2) Ringtones and notifications, and 3) Alarms. You can adjust each volume level accordingly using the sliders.

Now, the ringer’s maximum volume is controlled while you are listening to your favorite music. You still have the ability to control the volume for your ringtones and notifications using the buttons on your phone. You can also use the buttons to control your media volume. You just cannot go past the maximum that you set previously.

Depending upon the make and model of your Android device, there may be an extra step involved in the process for setting volume. You may have to choose your device while in the Settings menu. This has to be done for the Samsung Galaxy S4, for example.
