Android phones these days come in a variety of sizes ranging from 4 inches and going all the way up to 6. But most of the phones are almost always bigger than 5 inches and it is tough, especially for people with small hands to access and control the volume buttons that are present all the way over the top of their device.
Particularly while listening to music or surfing through Facebook using one hand it is tough to reach those buttons when you want to increase or decrease your volume immediately. There may also be instances in which people have phones with broken volume buttons that must be pressed long and hard enough to work.
I have a solution for these problems, and it is a simple app called VolumeSlider, which allows you to control the volume of your device just by scrolling through the edge of your phone. To be more precise, scroll up to increase your volume and scroll down to decrease.
You can even configure which part of your screen to control which volume of your device, like the right top for your notification volume, the right bottom for media, the left top for alarm and similar stuff.
First, install the app from the play store and then open it from your phone’s app drawer.
Turn on the volume slider by clicking on the button at the top and select the number of edges you want to use.
You will be provided with options based on the number of edges you select, and you can configure it according to your volume needs.
Once you have set up different controls for different edges now, you can make use of it. Just hold on to the edge where you have assigned the control and once you feel a vibration, scroll up or down to increase or decrease the volume of your device.
