    I am looking for some feedback or program examples on how to manipulate volume with Tasker, if possible. The problem I'm having is specifically media volume while playing streaming music through a BT connection with some Bose SoundLink speakers. The volume for some reason as operated on the phone itself only goes up and down a fraction of what it should. I'm hoping there are some steps using Tasker when I can write a program that allows to overcome this issue with the phone. The volume rocker on the phone works perfectly with every other device or type of volume, just not the Bose.

    If any of you pros out there can give me your thoughts on this issue or show me programs you have come up with to manipulate your phones volume in different ways - especially using the phone's volume rocker - I would be greatly appreciative! Can this be done with Tasker?

    Yes. You can control all the specific volumes for the phone through tasker. They're all under the audio section.

    I have this set in my tasker settings. But I am not sure it works 100% of the time. For example, I have a task for loading Car Home Ultra when my car connects to my bluetooth in my car and I have it set to turn up bluetooth volume to 15 which is the max. But there are many times that it doesn't work. I'd like a way to always have bluetooth maxed out because I can use the car to control the volume.

    I'm pretty sure you have to adjust the system volume properties too

However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
