    Default Does 4.4 allow unlinking notification volumes?

    One of the worst updates starting with ICS - the inability to adjust notification volume independently of the ringer volume.

    Has this been rectified in Kit Kat? (I won't hold my breath, but I sure hope so).

    Use xposed framework . There is a module just for that.

    I don't mess with my phone (i.e. custom ROMs) and this sounds like what you're talking about. How about for a non-geek? Did Google fix this issue?

    Don't know if they fixed it. Framework is used to customize or fix without roms etc.

    No, unless there's some new setting buried somewhere, "Ringtone & Notifications" is still just one setting :P

    Ok, thanks. I kind of figured. Why have a useful setting like that included in your OS? Ha

    One of those things sorely missed from BlackBerry. I was pretty surprised to find out that it wasn't an option in Android (wasn't surprised about its absence from iOS)

    The crummy thing is, that WAS a supported feature prior to Ice Cream Sandwich. Why take a useful setting away?

    No, but you can use LightFlow to unlink them, and no root required.

    It's not compatible yet because the developer doesn't have a phone that run kitkat, but there are some donations toward it. is now

    According to the reviews, Smart Sound Profiles seems to do the trick. I haven't tried it myself

    There's also a 10-day trial version

    Push the volume rocker up or down, then press the settings icon on the right and the attached screen comes upDoes 4.4 allow unlinking notification volumes?-screenshot_2013-11-14-13-33-56.jpg giving you the ability to separate one volume from another. I have HTC One running 4.4. I don't know whether that function is specific to my HTC One or if it applies to the Android OS...

    Yes! Thanks. Smart Sound Profiles works great on my unrooted Nexus 5. I have low volume notification sounds while the ringer can be loud (or even with increasing volume).
    Thanks!

    Also a great solution for the Moto G on 4.4.

    Thanks !

    Also, maybe Tasker could be used? Yes? No?
