Question

Is there any way to separate app volumes on Android?

I have a Galaxy S9 and often have music playing on Spotify while using Pokemon Go.

Unfortunately, turning up Spotify music volume also turns up the very obnoxious Pokemon Go sounds, which I want to STAY ON so I can HEAR if anything pops up if I'm not looking at the screen.

I know there are apps that set the default volume of apps when they're opened or closed, but are there any that can, for example, allow Spotify to be on max volume while Pokemon Go is at like 30% volume, with them running at the SAME time?

Also needs to be something that does NOT require rooting the phone.

App Volume Control?

Nope...

As I said, that's one of the ones that can change volume when each one is opened, not when both are open at once.

Then an app or OS future.

While I did find App Volume Control to work, it seems to miss what you want so maybe in the future this will happen.

To me an app is open when it's running. I don't define the app as open only when it's on screen. For me the App Volume Control worked as expected.

Since it didn't work for you, be sure to write the author and describe in detail what you want.
