How to Customize Volume Panel on Samsung Galaxy Phones

One of the main benefits of owning an Android phone is the tons of customization options. And if you have a Galaxy phone, the customization options are endless. From the home screen to the caller screen, Samsung allows customization of almost every part of the system UI. Today we’ll talk about customizing volume panels. Here you will learn how to customize volume panel on Samsung Galaxy phones.

Volume Panel is the interface that appears when you use the volume buttons. By default, it displays a single volume bar, but upon expansion, it reveals controls for Ringtone, Media, Notifications, and System volumes. From here users can easily adjust volumes.

The default Volume Panel UI is quite good, but seeing the same interface repeatedly can become boring. Did you know that you can customize this UI on Samsung Galaxy phones? And you can do it without rooting your device, thanks to Good Lock.

Good Lock is a powerful personalization tool that helps users customize various elements on the device. There are several modules that make advanced customization possible.
