On XZ2 compact Android 9, I want the phone to vibrate only when set on vibration and not when on sound.
ATM if I am on sound and want to switch to vibration only I need to:
- chose "Vibrate" from the volume keys shortcut;
- go to settings -> search for vibration -> set "Ring & notification vibration" to "On".
If I want to move to sound only I need to:
- chose "Sound" from the volume keys shortcut;
- go to settings -> search for vibration -> set "Ring & notification vibration" to "Off".
Does anybody know any shortcut/solution to switch between sound only/vibrate faster?
Just use the volume up/down buttons on the right edge. It will trigger a software button at the edge Just press the bell or vibrate button to toggle between the vibrate or ring mode. This works for me.
As I said before, your approach is conditioned by the "Ring & notification vibration" status.
If I press the vibrate button as you said, but the above option is off, the phone will not vibrate.
If I press the bell as you said, but the "Ring & notification vibration" is on, the phone will have both sound and vibration.
I want either sound or vibration, not both at the same time.
I see. If you want to disable the vibration, if you go under settings>sound, under volume, you can uncheck the "Also vibrate for calls". Hope this helps.
Your approach only affects the ringtone for calls, but all the notifications are still conditioned by "Ring & notification vibration".
If "Also vibrate for calls" is off and the phone is set on sound (bell), but the "Ring & notification vibration" is on => then the phone will have sound only for calls but will vibrate for notifications.
That is something I do not want; I just need a toggle for either sound only OR vibration only for everything (calls, SMS, emails, whatsapp).
What I need was in Android 6 and all other phones/OS before. However for unknow reasons we have been downgroaded to the current Pie.
Did that already, but didn't find what I need.
Thought that maybe someone has a workaround or app to do this from a click of a button not 5 .
This is another new feature that seems to be disabled by default, at least on the devices that have gotten the Pie upgrade so far — so it's up to you to find it and activate it if you want to give it a go.
