Can't change volume to alarms.

With the new update Everytime I press the volume button only the media volumes shows. Other than going to the settings is there a different way of turning down the alarm volume. Also when I change the volume and settings it always plays the alarm really loud. Is there a way I can stop it from making noises when I change the volume in the settings .

Re: Can't change volume to alarms.

Hi @Lucasty007, welcome to our forum!

This is how the volume control works in Android Pie and there is no setting in the device to change it back to how it was in previous Android versions and the "preview" sound that is played when adjusting the volume, can not be changed either.

There may be applications available in the Google Play store that can change the behaviour of the volume control, so you can always have a look in there.

I hope that answers your question!
