The Samsung SoundAssistant is an app that allows the user to customize and control the sound output of their Samsung Galaxy phone. You can change the default function of the volume buttons: for example, from ring tone to media volume. You can set specific volumes for each application: for example, your music app can be set to a higher volume than your news media app. The coolest feature is only for the Galaxy S8 for now. It allows you to set different speaker outputs for each app; for example, you can set your music app to play through a Bluetooth speaker, while setting your game app to play through the phone’s speaker.
You can download the free app from the Play Store here.
