Version 1.11 uploaded on xda lab and playstore, with the latest changes
1. Volume hardware keys now supported with long pressed too.
2. Transparency option added
3. Color options for Volume slider
4. You can lock audio channel, so if you want only media audio control on volume key press, you can set Volume slider to media, by default its "auto" like default android system. that shows slider based on the current running app.
5. Animation like P

I don't think this app can capture / override the system volume buttons.. it only seems to work through the through the homescreen or notification widget.

I hit the refund button in the play store, but will definitely be back if it can do this on a stock samsung s7 edge!

That will need accessibility service access and background service running all the time in background, which we want to avoid. so right now this will not work.
may be if we get more such request, we will add such option for advance user, where user will have choice to start background service.

Is it possible to open this notification panel when we press volume button?

    Tomorrow's update (20 March 2018), will have option to override the hardware volume keys..
    we are able to get it done using accessibility service.

    I mean it's currently doesn't work with volume button if i not launch it from notification bar, it's need accessibility permission.


    It could be more nice if it can replace stock volume bar. Nice work. Let me know if my suggestion was applied.

    Ok thanks and please let me know when you release it.

    Thank you for your suggestion and messages.
    yes we are working on accessibility service part so, it can be shown up when volume button hardware key pressed..
    we will keep you updated..

    Great app , would love to see it work with volume buttons !

    This works well with button mapper and pop up widget for setting as default volume when pressing volume hardware buttons.

    Will be great if could replace the Oreo slider completely. Accessibility or root should be allowed

    Working in my lenovo a6000+ thank's @yogi.306

    Yes, it's great but this appearing & disappearing every time you change volume is pretty annoying, @yogi.306 please change this?

    Also I'd expect to be able to tap the icon below the slider to toggle mute (as in Android P) but that doesn't work, and I'd love there to be a way to tap left and right to scroll through all the sliders showing one at a time, or even to expand the slider horizontally to show all the sliders at the same time.

    Android P also features a Volume UP + Power combo to toggle silent mode, see https://www.androidauthority.com/android-p-silence-ringer-863232/

    You named it all. Thanks!
