Apps still play sound in Vibrate and Mute modes

First Poster



I have recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S9 and I am having an issue where the sounds in apps and games are still playing even when I have the phone in Vibrate or Mute modes.


This is my first Android phone having moved from iPhone is there a setting I am missing here? Surely I don't have to mute all apps individually.

Hi @IanB1982.


Did you manage to resolve this issue or is it still happening?

Not I haven't found a fix yet. If I put the phone in Vibrate or Silent mode the Media volume does not adjust. I have to go into the Sounds and vibration settings and manually adjust the Media volume down to zero.
