    The first time my Nexus 6 rings, the volume is is very, very low. During the second ring, the volume starts to increase and is at the set level by the time the second ring comes in.
    Does anyone have a fix for this?
    Thanks,

    Seems to be a Lollipop issue as my Moto X 2014 does the same thing since the update.

    I've noticed the same thing. I wondered if it was Google's way of letting you catch a call before the ringing got too loud. If not, plenty of other things I'd fix first. But I'm definitely in your boat as well.

    I haven't noticed that yet, only had a nexus 6 for a few days, but my HTC One X had this as an option and I liked it. Shame if it isn't selectable.

    Maybe if people complain about it Google will change it, I've seen a few people complain about not being able to change the chat bubble colour on the message app and that got fixed.

    Exactly!

    I don't see this as an issue at all. As mentioned above, it gives me a chance to answer a call before the ringing becomes obnoxious - I normally keep the ring volume quite high because I am in different environments throughout the day and cannot always easily hear it.

    I've had this "feature" on a few phones now, and have come to appreciate the more subtle alert before the ringtone blasts me.

    but the same applies when you call someone, especially on speaker, there is a delay in volume increases, so as soon as the person answer, you can't hear them until volume adjusts, this is not a good thing!

    I think it's a bug as I notice it on my Moto X. Plus if you have sms sounds that are short sometimes you miss a message because the sound was too low. If it did it on ring tones I could maybe see it as a feature but the fact that it is happening to notification sounds tells me it's a bug.

    That sounds more like a bug than a feature for sure

    Is it a bug or feature? I'm running "Liquid Smooth Rom" and it's a feature with adjustments.

    I love this feature. It allows me to pick up the phone or silence it before the entire office hears it.

    Any news on how to adjust this? I don't mind it on ringing but I miss stuff when switching to speaker phone during a call.

    Too bad they didn't apply this to the AT&T opening boot up sound. It's my understanding that it's quite loud. Definitely should have made that start up softly so it's not so intrusive, especially if having problems with random reboots and it's rebooting during a business meeting, at the theater, etc.

    IF ALL ELSE FAILS

    Hi guys I'm new to the forum but i hope i can help as my Moto g 2nd Gen had the same problem and it's running ok for now......

    You are going to need to plug your phone into a computer and on AUTO PLAY click "OPEN FOLDER TO VIEW FILES".

    1) Go to Media folder > Audio > Ringtones
    2) Copy all ringtones and go back 3 tabs to the main storage page of your phone
    3) Open Ringtones folder and paste your ringtones
    4) Close the window, unplug your phone and cross your fingers it has solved your problem.

    Worked for me so i hope this helps others.

    Good luck

    This is a stupid "feature" that Google added to Lollipop. It is not user selectable. It is especially annoying on speakerphone calls. Absolute idiocy.

    Hi everybody!Purchased the google nexus 6 32GB (white) last Friday and got it yesterday and have been using it for almost 24 hours! I have noticed this delay and its about 2 seconds. The sound delay is everywhere. If you press play on a youtube video there will be a 2 second delay until the sound of the video reaches the speakers. Same thing goes when somebody is calling you or messaging. The volume will start low at the top speaker and after 2 seconds will work properly. Also while having a phone call if you press the speaker button, it will take 2 seconds until the speakers are activated. I don't know if its a bug for the 5.1.1 or if its some phones but i personally called Google today and reported the problem. Would like to know if there is a fix or if its a device problem.

    NEXUS 6 ASCENDING/INCREASING RING: FIXED. Yeeeeeeeeah!!!

    I *had* the same problem since the first day of use of my N6 until... yesterday! The upgrade from Lollipop to Marshmallow didn't fix it, as I hoped. The only things I did yesterday are the following:

    1. I uninstalled Google Launcher directly from the Google Play Store
    2. I uninstalled Google directly from the Google Play Store

    TIP: Search "Google Now" on the Play Store. Two results appear in the following screen. Tap the first result and uninstall it. Go back, tap the second one and uninstall it as well.

    Then I reinstalled both. After that, I had to rebuild my home screen manually, my folders and so on. A lil disappointing, but it took just 10 minutes (and a couple of blasphemies... helpful, as usual). You can take a screenshot of your home screen (powerbutton+volumedown), first. This will help you rebuild everything.

    3. I changed the ring from "default" to... the same ring but with its name, choosing it from the stock helper app "Media Storage". I did the same with Google Messenger and Whatsapp.
    4. I installed the official LinkedIn app.

    Magically, the increasing ring has disappeared. The funny thing is that I was trying to fix a different problem! :-)

    I imagine that both LinkedIn and Whatsapp doesn't matter...! I'm just telling you *all* the things I did.

    Let me know if it works, please. If it does, I'll disseminate this information all over the web, since a lot of people have this problem which, as I've understood, must be a software bug and not a hardware lock or a hardware bug as I red in certain forums.
