At some point in time, your volume buttons – either volume up or volume down or worst both – may start giving up on you. They just stopped working no matter how hard you press on them. While typically you should start looking either for a repair or a replacement (new phone), but I have the tips here on how you can do volume up and volume down using Android built-in feature (no additional 3rd party shady app required), so you can extend your Android device life longer before eventually go for a repair or a replacement.
Here’s how to volume up and volume down Android device without Volume Button & without installing any apps
Android has the Accessibility Menu which has many helpful features. Two of them is the ability to do volume up and volume down – which is useful to volume up and volume down your Android device. Check out the steps below to activate the Accessibility Menu and use the volume up and volume down features.
This one-time setup is required to enable the feature. The steps below are based on Android 11 running on Google Pixel, if you are using different Android version and phone, the steps may slightly differs from yours, so please adjust accordingly.
1) On your Android device, go to Settings > Accessibility. Tap on “Accessibility Menu”.
2) Inside Accessibility Menu, under Option, turn on “Accessibility Menu Shortcut”.
3) You’ll get prompted with “Allow Accessibility Menu to have full control of your device?” and follow by lengthy description, tap “Allow” to proceed.
4) You’ll get another prompt, this time to let you know how to activate the Accessibility menu. Tap “Got it” once you read it to proceed.
|If you are using the standard 2-button or 3-button navigation, you’ll get notified with how to use the accessibility button|
|If you are using Gesture navigation, you’ll get notified with how to use new accessibility gesture|
Here’s how to volume up or volume down Android device without using the Volume Button
Once you have done the one-time setup (instruction above), here’s how you can volume up or volume down your Android device without using the Volume buttons:
1) Activate the Accessibility Menu. Depends on your Android device settings, if you are using the standard 2-button or 3-button navigations, tap on the “Person” icon located at the bottom right of the screen, if you are using Gesture navigation, swipe up with two fingers.
2) On the Accessibility Menu, tap “Volume Up” to volume up or tap “Volume Down” to volume down your Android device without using Volume buttons.
Bring it all together
With Accessibility Menu detailed above, now you can easily volume up or volume down your Android device without the needs of Volume buttons nor installing any apps, so in case your volume up or volume down buttons just broke, you can still use your Android phone just like normal or in case you want to “preserve” your Volume buttons to work longer, then now you know how you can do so.
