Android P will finally be able to remember your Bluetooth headphone volume settings

Android P is finally fixing its Bluetooth volume configuration with an update that will allow the mobile operating system to remember device-by-device volume preferences, according to Android Police .

Now, Android will store the last volume used on each device in a preferences file and will automatically reconfigure it the next time it connects to that device. It's not exactly a big change, but as someone who regularly alternates between blasting music through a Bluetooth speaker and listening to music on a pair of headphones, it will be nice not to have the eardrums turned off every time you switch between the two devices. (And yes, iOS has been able to do this for a while, but it's nice to see that Android is catching up to help protect my hearing.)

According to Android Police the update has already been approved and it has merged with Android, so it should be launched on one of the upcoming Android P developer previews, which is still expected to be released to the public sometime this fall.
