    In some, but not all, media playback apps available for the Note 4, you can swipe up on the playback screen to increase the volume and swipe down to decrease the volume.

    Welcome to Android!

    I know you said by "not pushing the hard keys" but this is the easiest way.

    Push the volume rocker hard button on the side (either up or down).

    1. Then, push the gear icon on the volume pop-up.
    2. You can now see all the volume settings. Adjust the media volume. Then wait a couple seconds (or touch the screen) and the volume pop-up will go away.

    See the pictures below.

    Will this work for you?

    Search the Google Play store for "volume in notification" and you'll find some apps that allow you to adjust the volume by swiping the notification bar down. Like this one.

    Glad you found something that works for you.

    If you want something that does a similar thing with the screen brightness, this one is awesome:
    Display Brightness
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...playBrightness

    I use it dozens of times a day. It's amazingly useful and extremely accessible (it's always there, hidden, just slide your finger). It works over top of every app.

    Just a little thread hijack here - can you link the ringer and notification volume? If I press the volume down, will my notifications change with the ring volume or will they still be loud? I'll be coming from a Nexus where that's all one volume.
