    Just got this new phone. It has android 10. I'm trying to get night paging to work so I can mute my phone but still get notified if I get paged. The paging program uses alarm volume. But I don't have alarm volume. So I can't set the alerting app to use alarm volume. To get it to work, I need to leave notifications volume at max at night. But I don't want to be alerted for non essential stuff at 2 am. Is there a way to add alarm volume back to android 10? Btw, I have a samsung note 10+.

    Well I tried to attach an image of my volume options but it's not allowing me to upload the pic. Only options I have is ring, media, notifications and system.

    Here are my Android 10 volume options (obtained by long press on volume key then selecting the little settings icon at the bottom). As you can see there is an alarm volume.


    What phone do you have?

    I'm not sure what you mean by a long press on a volume key. When I hold down a volume key, it just turns the volume all the way up or down.

    You don't get a little volume slider appear on the screen when you press the volume key? On my Pixel (Android 10) it looks like this:


    Pressing the little symbol at the bottom brings up the options I posted earlier.

    If you don't then it's something that Samsung have altered, as this is stock Android 10 behaviour (though it pre-dates Android 10). As I don't have a recent Samsung device I'm afraid I can't investigate any changes they may have made.

    The access is the same @Hadron but the options aren't.

    Interesting. On the Pixel Notifications are tied to Ring volume, which makes more sense to me since they perform similar functions (audible alerts) while Alarm has a different usage. I wonder why Samsung did it that way?

    Though for that matter I've never understood why Google didn't leave well alone and keep Ring/Notification/Alarm as separate settings, as used to be the case.
