    Since yesterday i have noticed my Media Volume has been lowering itself without the audio UI appearing or my pressing any buttons it does not fully mute and i can raise it back to maximum but soon after it lowers itself again and i am at a loss for ideas any help to solve this issue would be appreciated.

    INFO
    i do not have a phone case i am using a Samsung galaxy s9 this problem happens whenever i open apps like browsers or some others i was told that it may have been a bad app that i installed but the only app i have installed recently was Renamer created by dire studios and only had it installed for maybe 5 minutes before deletion and have since removed the app i am not sure if this could be some form of obscure form of malware or a bug with samsung software Has anybody else experience this issue recently if so have you found a fix

    Welcome to AC!

    Did you lower the volume with the button in YouTube or any media apps ? Because it will lower in your screen shot if u used the volume button in a Media app

    thanks for the response no i have not lowered the volume myself and the volume will not go below the level shown in the screenshot on its own i will turn it up all the way and open a browser and boom right back to that level ive even tried leaving it for an hour in the browser after it lowered itself and it stays at that level until i turn it back to maximum then it goes back down to that level in a loop im not really sure whats causing this

    it can be reproduced to some level of consistency by opening any of the apps ill list here firefox/brave/chrome/instagram/reddit whenever i open those apps it usually lowers the volume i have not tried with any other apps but it seems to be the same no matter what app i use if i dont stay on the home screen or in spotify it lowers automatically to that level

    Hmm I would say try safe mode but it defeats the purpose because it turns off 3rd party apps.

    You can try going into settings>apps>3 dots upper right corner tap and reset app preference see if it helps

    i did that and the issue has decreased in frequency but still happens after a while do you think this could be some form of malware as silly as it sounds or is it maybe just a new bug with samsung galaxy s9 devices as another user has posted about having the same issue https://forums.androidcentral.com/sa...ifying-me.html could we just be at the mercy of samsung for a fix?

    I doubt any malware , do you go to any shady sites or download unknown sources ?

    Probably a glitch , is your device pretty stock, not much 3rd party apps , no app cleaners Samsung sound assistant app?

    Have you connected headphones at any point? I'm wondering if it could be related to avls...

    the only "shady" app i have downloaded is a app titled "Renamer" that im unsure of since it only had 10k downloads but i deleted it as soon as i noticed and as for stock i have never rooted and i have no apps installed via apk its all the basic apps you would expect from a phone with a few games here and there is there a way for me to report this issue to samsung directly or is the s9 a dead phone in terms of updates

    i have plugged some in a few hours ago after the problem started and oddly enough the audio maintains a steady volume when headphones are plugged in but i doubt its a audio jack bug as whenever you plug in headphones the Media menu appears
