Increase a smartphone’s in-call volume
There’s no setting for it in the menu, but Chris Martin reveals how to increase in-call volume
So you’re having a phone call with someone and they’re particularly quiet. It’s not a bad connection though, it’s your phone. You’ve probably searched through your smartphone’s settings menu to find some kind of in-call control or volume slider, but you won’t have found one because there isn’t one. Instead, you will have found all kinds of other sound settings for things such as alarm volume, notification volume and more.
It might seem odd but the real answer to your question is that you can’t adjust in-call volume until you’re connected on a phone call. When you are, no matter whether you’re using iOS, Android or Windows Phone, you simply need to use the volume buttons/ rocker on the side of your device to increase or decrease the volume. If you’re already aware of this and you’re call volume is at maximum, then you’ve got a different problem. Reviewing so many phones, as we do, we’ve notices that some earpieces dramatically change in volume with only a small movement while holding it to your ear – so you might just need to take some time to find that ‘sweet spot’.
Once you’ve tried the above and the problem is still ongoing, you might need to try an app. Search your respective app store for a volume booster and see which one works for you. Volume Booster is popular on Android, for example.
