Pixel series is finally catching up to other Android phones thanks to small redesign

Sometimes the best changes are the small ones. A quality-of-life update is coming to a future version of Pixel OS separating the volume controls for ringtones and notifications.

It’s a pretty basic change, sure, but considering the fact that you can already adjust the volume for media and alarms separately, it makes sense to have the tool cover everything. You can silence notifications in case your group chat is sending out tons of texts while still letting you hear phone calls, for example. Apparently, this one feature has been in the works for about a year and a half, according to the original Google IssueTracker post asking for this change (opens in new tab). Looking through the thread, it seems Google didn’t really see this request as important enough to implement quickly so the company took its time.
