Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Dougie, Anonymous

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to demonstrate how to adjust the volume on the Nexus 6P smartphone. There are two ways to do this. One is a little more complicated, but I am going to show that first. It is recommended for beginners, because it will really help you understand how the volume controls work on the Nexus 6P.

    In the "Settings" menu, tap on "Sound & notification".
    You will see that the Sound is actually grouped into three distinct volume controls: you have one for your "Media volume", one for your "Alarm volume", and one for your "Ring volume". The "Media volume" is for playing music.

    You can do the same action as in step 4 for "Alarm Volume" and "Ring Volume".
    The second method is more complicated: it allows you to preview the sound of the volume as you are making the adjustments, and it involves the volume up and down buttons.

    Then, tap on the down arrow.
    You will be able to adjust all of the three volume types. Automatic selection of the volume type is useful and intuitive, because the phone may assume that you want to adjust the ringtone volume.

    Press a volume button.
    The phone will assume that you want to adjust "Alarm Volume". The volume buttons may be the easiest method to adjust the volume. It is recommended to initially set the volumes up in the "Settings" menu. That way, you can preview how loud the sounds will be and obtain a firm understanding of all of the different volume controls on your Nexus 6P device.
