Volume Control Widget

There are plenty of volume widgets that will show you the volume and take you to the volume settings when you tap them. But, very few actually let you adjust the volume using the widget itself.

This volume control widget shows the volume and actually lets you adjust it. Simple, easy to use, no need to enter the settings. It's exactly what you're looking for when you search the market for a volume widget.

If you like this widget, check out the donation version!

NOTE: On Android 3.0 and higher, the widget may not show up in the widget menu immediately after install. Restarting your launcher or rebooting your device should fix it. This is a known Android problem, and there is nothing I can do about it.

Nice Job Sleek, simple, and professional. Adds sound setting to home screen that android should have on the main settings page, like brightness. After install it needed a reboot to show up as an available widget.

Great. Love this, does exactly what it says. One thing that is not much of a problem, I can see a little white pixel on the low speaker icon on the left. It looks like the graphic artist cut away the sound rays from the volume up icon, and left a little white pixel on the volume down icon. Galaxy S3.

AMAZING!!! I used to not be able to turn down my volume AT ALL! After I got this app, it started working. Unless if it was the update the fixed it.. But, I love how I can take up wasted space with it! It really is handy and nice! Good job!


Nice addition tto my screen I needed to take up some empty space and I actually use it quite a bit! Can set up multiple for different volumes

Ethan Eddy

Does exactly what I need I am wearing out the volume buttons on my tablet. This gives me an on screen control for my volume. NO ADVERTISEMENTS. Requires no additional permissions, just works.

A Google User

Does not show in widgets I did see the description note about it not showing up til reboot in android 3.0+, and i rebooted my phone 3 times. It still does not show up. Uninstalling. Hopefully i can find one that actually works.

A Google User

Exactly what i wanted. A slider volume widget. I have an icontrolpad and my volume keys are blocked when i am using it. This allows me to change the volume easily without removing my phone from the icontrolpad.

Josh Temple

Perfect and simple Every android system should have something like this pre installed. Only one problem. You can't slide the bar, which is kinda odd. Should be a dot you can click and slide

A Google User

Simple is better! Simple, small size, only knock is now settings for color.

Sean Gordon

Exactly what I wanted The volume buttons on my phone have broken, so a volume slider widget is incredibly useful, and it works great.

A Google User

Ronseal.... Does exactly what it says on the tin and unlike many other apps it actually works!! Downloaded it as my hard case covers my volume buttons and works a treat! 5 stars

Bobby Davison

Love it. Have my nexus in a case that makes it really hard today access the volume control. This is perfect

A Google User

Impressive Don't be fooled by the screen shots. This widget looks pretty slick. And it's the first widget I've used that has made good use of ics's ability to adjust the size of the widget from the home screen

A Google User

superb dunno if it could be better but I know that it's good enough. good job man simplicity at it's finest

Junaid Ahmed

Great app Would beawesome if there was a way to change media and ringtone volume straight from notifications. Full 5 there

Michal Kovacik

Touch feedback&system missing :( I wanted app just for touch feedback volume adjustment but just this setting is missing. For other volumes works nice.

David H

JB problem? Installed & restarted my device but this widget is still not visible. Pity, heard good reviews.

Jaime Roberts

Help This widget is one of my favorites but it has stopped working on my screen. When you click up or down nothing happens.

Patrick Chua

What I was looking for! Was thinking of coding one but heck there's already this nifty widgets, thanks dev!

Felicity Franklin

Exactly what I need Simple, to the point. The widgets being slightly transparent is a nice touch.

Dan Melignano

Love this widget Easy to adjust individual volume levels right from your home screen. Resizable widgets work great and make things very convenient. Thanks!

vinny cannon

Not Good Galaxy S3. Shortcut/widget won't appear on homescreens or app list. App manager shows installed + running. Rebooted several times.

Shion Nezumi

Simple, enough said!!! Tried many volume widgets but this one's the best. No complicated shenanigans!!

A Google User

Works great. Would love it if I could edit the background color and alpha level. Like simi clock.

War Eagle

Works great! Been using this app for every phone I buy and haven't had a single problem with it...thanks for the solid software.

Karthikeyan Venkatraman

Eliminated the need for volume rocker! Exactly what I was looking for! My Galaxy Nexus volume rocker no longer works since I got it drenched in my recent visit to Niagra falls.. and I thought of widgets solution. Works perfect for my need until I get my next phone. Who knows, I may get so used to this widget that I'll forget about hardware buttons and will continue to use this widget in my next phone :)

Brandon Dreager

Perfect Nothing fancy, just a slider. My phone's volume buttons are broken, so this is a good workaround.

Tony Brown

Nice But not what I'm looking for. I'm trying to find a (preferably vertical) widget that will control the volume on my xbmc/boxee and/or send ir frequencies.

A Google User

plain and simple very useful as u dont have to put all volume controls in a single widget. btw how do u change the slider color?

Mark Lewandoske

NoShow Installed on my droid for and will not show up on my home screen after transferring from my Apps/Widgets menu.

A Google User

Does what it says. Can adjust the volume right from the home screen. Also it can be done by tapping rather than sliding the bar, exactly what I wanted

LegStyle Tights & Pantyhose Fashion

Perfect! Exactly what I needed & doesn't take up any unnecessary space. Thank You! :)

A Google User

Works as advertised! Great app. Will be very handy while in the gym to adjust music volume (using arm band that makes reaching volume control on phone difficult).

Pavan Shidlaghatta

Pavan Nice App, Is there support for KitKat with ART?

A Google User

Xyboard wont run Looking for shutter noise fix on xyboard. No appear to run. Reboot does not fix. No help for shutter noise fix.

Jason Shepard

Perfection This was it works perfectly on my Google Nexus 7, the only thing that I would suggest to make it better would be to make the volume up and down buttons scalable.

A Google User

Perfect Exactly what I've been looking for now for months. Simple volume widget that didn't require opening an app.

Eugene Gue

Very good! A 1x1 widget would be nice though (down-up slider instead of left-right), and more customization (styles, colors, and background opacity)

A Google User

Doesn't work App is not comparable with Moto Electrify 2

Brenlyn McNeil

Meh Installed this today because my S5 volume rocker doesn't go to silent mode for some reason. Although it does what I need it to, I've noticed a glitch. Sometimes it freezes up and I end up having to press it a few times to move it to whatever mode I want. Please fix this glitch.


Not as pictured At 1st I thought the widget didn't appear. Now I realize it did but doesn't look like the sample picture above. The volume isn't a thick yellow bar. It's a very thin blue line. 5 stars if it can look like the picture.

Emre Özmen

Doesn't show up After updating (which was around 10 hours ago) widgets disappeared. I reinstalled the app and restarted my phone still nothing.

Charles Mellen

Does what it says on the tin. Quite a neat widget, I think. Works fine on Android 2.1.6. No weird permissions needed, either. I highly recommend this app for users who like a widget that does what it's supposed to.

Prabha Devi

Good widget! I like it very much.

Irvin Smiljic

Nothing After restarting, nothing again.

Björn andersson

Nice Does what it is supposed to do.

Joshua Groom

Perfect Does the job, no tricks about it. Clean and simple. 10/10

A Google User

Great Good in size and working exactly

scott quin

Always active volume slider widget is AWESOME This is PERFECTION! The volume slider is ACTIVE on the home screen. You can set the volume with just one tap . . . YES, JUST ONE TAP . . . on the home screen to lower or raise the volume. On every other widget I could find, it took a tap to call up the app before you could change the volume. I have a tablet without external volume controls, so this is really useful.

Michael Stenlund

Really like this You can resize them also for your personal taste. No more muting my phone needed. Now I just lower all volumes from my desktop.

Aaron's Public Email

No ads, nice look, great for audible Audible player lacks any kind of vol control & my car's phone bracket blocks side vol buttons. This widget is a fantastic solution. Only thing that could improve would be the option to make its buttons even larger. But works great with aud. widget as is.

Deep Chandra

5***** no special permissions | small sized | effective \& would be a complete application if notification control is added by developer

Mark Stewart

This works and is designed nicely 4 stars,could add features like turning it in to a volume knob like on a stereo besides that best volume widget on the play store 5 stars if more features and what I suggested is added PS: also ability to edit the widget so I don't have to re-add them to do changes

Haruna Otsuka Otsuka

Good Works Very Usefull. Thank's.

Kandambige Chamila Lakmal

Good app. This is all I wanted.

Shawn B

It's good Pretty nice

Ian 08

Exactly what i needed!!!

Phillippia Simmons

This gets it right I don't often leave app reviews, but when I find an app that does just what it says and without ceaseless ads, I think it bears acknowledgment. Well done!

Detronix Clearview

Nice It would be cool if you could slide your finger over the widget and alter the volume like that. When i try it, my screen moves.

Marcus Bauer

No ads, nice widget Needs to be resized to 3x1 in order to show current volume

Lorenz Oliveros

Nice App My phone's hardware buttons are not working so I can't increase or lower my volume. Thanks for this app. Good job.

Excellent Thank You. I broke my volume button so this app is a life saver, works great. Thank you.

shamsul anuar

works great with my lenovo a889 but why..everytime i clean my phone this app doesnt work anymore..had to remove it first then put it on my homescreen again..i want to put this app in my cleaner ignore list but cannot find it in the me then i give 5star..ty

Greg Rothe

Clean and simple Just drop the widget on your desktop and set which volume slider it's tied to. Up/down controls work, but level display has some lag after lollipop.

A Google User

Just what i need Download,u gonna LIKE it, it simple but useful. It widget and guess what? Does't eat my ram at all!!!

Good widget Now if we can get one as a rotator knob so I can just rotate the volume up or down that would be epic hell yes it would be quicker than having to press the speaker multiple times to change volume
