    Hello all! I noticed on day one that during a call, the extra volume option is gone. On my S7 Edge it's still there. Is that option hidden somewhere or disabled? I'm on AT&T BTW. I just liked that feature especially when I'm out in a noisy area. TIA!

    I have Verizon and can't find that option either. I don't know if they did away with it on the Note 7 or what.

    I went from a Note 4 to the S7 edge... wishing I could have waited for the Note 7... , but could I please ask you how do you get this extra volume on the S7 edge? Thanks.

    Just touch the 3 dots in the upper right while in a call.

    I found this app called "Speaker Boost" on Google Play that someone recommended from the Galaxy S7 messageboard..., they mentioned that a 30% boost works wonders, but definately not above 60%. Just downloaded it and put it on 30% and I think it helps a lot. I previously had volume booster on my phone, but this app works much better. Something to try.

    This seems to work pretty good.

    It's on the main screen on Sprint, not the number pad, during a call.

    Thank you everyone for your kind replies!! Yeah I can't find that option anymore. I will try that sound booster that someone mentioned above. I will surely miss that feature though! It came handy when I was outdoors.

    It's there during a call on the Verizon version. You just have to wait til the call is connected to change it.

    Wow! I wonder if AT&T version had it removed then? I tried looking for it during a call and while dialing up. Nada.. :-(

    I am on ATT, it's there, once the call connects, the 3 dot menu is in the top right. It won't show until the call connects, try calling your voicemail.

    I made 2 different calls just now. When the call connects and I press the 3 dot menu at the top right, I only get 3 options: Hold, View Contact and Send Message. I don't see the option for extra volume for the earpiece nor the speaker phone. :-(

    Anyone know if there a technical reason behind why there is an extra volume option to begin with ? Couldnt they have made the highest volume option equal to the output of the extra volume ?

    Strange, I'm an AT&T user as well, so I thought I would check to see if I had this feature, so when my wife called me earlier, I checked the 3 dot menu and didn't have an Extra Volume option. However, I just tried calling my voicemail, and when I clicked it then, the "Turn on extra volume" was there. Only difference I can figure out was I initiated the call to my voicemail, while the other one was one I received, not sure if that would make a difference or not.

    That is strange, I am not really familiar with the feature and I am new to android but I called my cell from my landline and the option is still there.
