Here’s What You Need To Know About Android M’s DND and Volume Control Changes
Android Lollipop was no doubt the biggest change to Android in a while, but you have to admit the OS version wasn’t without its fair share of issues and problems. It had a few bugs and some features weren’t implemented as well as they should have been.
However, thanks to Google and its ability to listen to fan feedback, Android M is not about massive new features but it is more about refinement.
The new OS comes with overhauled volume controls and they were highlighted during the I/O keynote last week by Google. It’s all about making things more accessible and convenient for users.
With Android M, pressing the volume control will present you with a volume slider for controlling, in addition to an arrow that will expand the menu to offer controls for alarms and notifications.
This isn’t a massive change yet a huge improvement over Lollipop.
Also, one feature that wasn’t highlighted is the “Do Not Disturb” mode which is making a comeback (previously it was referred to as “interruptions” system). Do Not Disturb mode brings some needed changes to the table, which also include a new “repeat callers.” When enabled, this feature will let callers through only if they call back within 15 minutes.
DND also offers some customization options, for instance, you can choose when to automatically turn on DND. No disturbances on the weekend I suppose.
