    I like the expanded volume panel in sound assistant but hate the way you have to get there (press a volume button which then changes the volume, which I don't necessarily want to do, then press the three dots on the slide that appears which is awkward, especially when driving).

    I just want to get to the full panel in one touch. Is this possible? I couldn't find a Nova Action to get there and can't find anything on the web/ YouTube.

    Thanks v much indeed. Unfortunately these type of apps don't work well with different audio channels. Samsung's sound assistant does this well in the expanded volume panel and has different sliders for say, media, Bluetooth, bixby voice etc.
    I'm just after a shortcut to go directly to the expanded panel, but I don't think one exists, which is a shame.

    You can try quickshortcutmaker app, then create a widget on your screen and then do a normal search for volume and choose com.android.settings/com.android.settings.Settings$secvolumeSettingsActivity . You can rename and select an icon for it. It is not the same as clicking the ... , but if you hit the ... on the volume slider and then hit the gear icon, it takes you to that screen, oriented left to right rather than up and down. Not exactly what you want, but close i think

    Thanks so much. I found the setting you've mentioned within Nova Actions, so I have a one touch icon for that, now, without having to use the quickshortcutmaker app.
    As you say, it's not quite what I wanted (and doesn't have multi app volumes) but it's the next best thing.
    Much appreciated

    Scroll all the way down within 'settings' and you should see Volume, before you get to WiFi.

    Long press homescreen. Choose add widget. At the top of the list, you'll have some Nova widgets to choose from. Choose Nova Activity Shortcut by dragging it to where you want on your homescreen. Then you'll get the list I'm referring to. It's massive, basically every app on your phone will be listed and there are various 'actions' for each app. Some will have more than others. Scroll down to Settings and expand. Settings will have a huge number (I've got over 300), so scroll down to where I've said and choose the volume action. You'll then have a one touch icon and when you press it, it will perform that action, i.e. take you to that volume menu with sliders.

    You might want to have a poke around some other apps and might find some really useful one touch action shortcuts you can use in the same way to take you to specific screens/ menus etc within your apps. It's an amazing feature but does take some trial and error unless someone tells you where to find something specific.

    I create a bixby routine and create a shortcut, i use it to activate the vibration mode. Maybe this helps you.
