Volume keys don't work with ringing volume in Xperia XA2

Hello! How do I set the volume keys to control the ringing volume again when only pressing them in usual background on SONY XPERIA XA2? Now, the volume keys, when pressed in ordinary use, set the volume of my media. This is happening since the last two system updates. Before that the volume keys controled the ringing volume of my phone. It was fine before, since it was very confortable for me to "keep it down" in a meeting or at night, when I received a call or message. Now I only get the option to set the ringer to vibrate, or go all the way back to sound menu. It was better before, I don't need the keys to set the general volume for media, they did that automatikaly when in app

That feature has google changed in android Pie. So it is not Sony's fault, blame google.

As for workaround I don't know, maybe some app from play store can do it.
