Google will add separate volume sliders for ringtones and notifications in a future Android build.
Currently, only one slider controls the volume for both functions.
The update would allow users to silence incoming calls while keeping the notification volume up and vice-versa.
For the past couple of versions, Android has had one volume slider for notifications and ringtone volume. That means if you want to silence incoming calls, you have no choice but to silence notifications too, and vice-versa. Now, Google is fixing this limitation and adding separate volume controls for ringtones and notifications.
