Alarm volume

ipuertas 5 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 2

I have a question about the alarm volume. When I set an alarm (time, station, etc.), and set the volume at 30%, for example, and I set the mobile master volume for multimedia sounds at 20% (aprox.); at morning when alarm is triggered, always it starts to play the station at full volume, ie, at 100%; but it isn't the internal XiiaLive volume (this one keeps at setting prior value -30% for example-); it's the master mobile volume which appears at 100% in this case. is it a normal behavior?

The default behavior for alarm's volume is that the master media volume for the device is always set to 100% to avoid the alarm from not being heard.


If you have the internal volume setting as OFF then the master media volume is simply set at the volume percent chosen for the alarm.


Hope it made sense! :)

Ok, I understand it. The problem is the master media volume  (at the minimum setting that I can heard), is too high for an alarm (for me). The perfect behavior for me could be the mixed volume (master and internal), the same way that I use for sleep mode.. ;)
Thanks a lot for the explanation anyway :)

Well the main thought I had was; what if the master media volume is too low when the alarm is triggered? With the sleep timer it just works because you can right away hear the volume level but an alarm is not really known until you "wake up". Also, I want to make sure people make it to work on time :P...  Any ideas or feedback about the alarms let me know! I'm always looking for ways to improve the app.
