Samsung has released a new app on the Google Play Store which enables owners of Galaxy smartphones to improve the audio experience on their handsets by tweaking a lot of different audio settings. The app enables users to control 150 steps of volume adjustment aside from EQ, mono, and stereo balancing. It even enables users to set individual volumes for different apps.
Samsung’s Soundassistant App is even capable of altering hardware keys so users can control the media volume instead of the ringtone when they press volume keys. The app can be used to create and enable sound settings based on the user’s own preferences.
Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners can use the app to set a different audio output path for different apps, so they can route audio to a Bluetooth speaker for music and the phone’s loudspeaker for a game.
The SoundAssistant app comes with a feature called Scenarios. It can be used to configure volume levels and vibration modes for specific days and time periods. This eliminates the hassle for users to manually change the sound profile on the device for a recurring event, such as a weekly work meeting.
