Samsung recently released a new Android app called SoundAssistant which has been selected as our featured Android App of the Week.
If you are the proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy, the SoundAssistant app will help you better enhance and customize your audio settings. The app enables you to customize volume controls individually for each of your apps, provides balancing for both stereo and mono, and has a floating EQ with 150 steps of volume adjustment.
For those of you who own a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, the SoundAssistant app lets you select different audio outputs for different apps. So for instance, you might want your Snapchat app to use your phone’s built in speakers and your Mixcloud app to use your Bluetooth speakers. Very cool feature, and one we all hope comes to other Samsung mobile devices at some point in the future as well.
In addition to all of the above mentioned features, the SoundAssistant app even gives you the ability to change the default volume control of the hardware’s volume up and down keys. We all know that frustrating feeling when it comes to the glitchy setting on Android devices where the volume control keys automatically default to whatever apps are running at that time. For example, if you’re in the middle of playing a game when someone calls you and you are trying to adjust the call volume it can sometimes be a bit finicky and doesn’t always adjust the volume you’re trying to select. SoundAssistant bypasses this default setting and gives you more control over this feature.
Currently this app only works with Android 7 Nougat but hopefully the app will get updated over time so that it works on older versions of the Android OS as well. Regardless, it’s still a handy app to have for the devices it does work on.
