Currently, when a user chooses to hear or mute notification noises on Pixel devices and a few other Android phones, that decision also affects your ringtone. For instance, if I have my phone set to vibrate for incoming calls, notifications will follow suit. At the OS level, there is no distinction between the two. Google claims that will soon change.
It was revealed that a separation of notification and ringtone loudness is coming to Android via Google’s own Issue Tracker website. It is stated that “The requested feature will be available in a future build,” which is excellent news given how things used to work in the past.
This news has been reported on previously. In fact, it was first observed that the loudness of the ringtone and notifications were being separated in December 2022. It appears that Google has decided to make the update and will eventually incorporate it into a user-facing edition of Android. Sweet.
