Change Volume on the Nexus 6P

Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Dougie

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.

    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.

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.
