As with many aspects of One UI, Samsung’s changes to Android’s volume control are controversial. Between the different orientations and the alternative design, it’s not for everyone. Fortunately for Android purists, there is an app to solve this problem.
This app can not only change the direction of the panel to vertical. it fits the standard Android design. And the best part is that it is customizable. While this guide focuses on switching to the Pixel theme, after that, take some time to play around with the app’s settings as there are several unique features that improve the volume window.
: Download Ultra Volume
Go to the Play Store and download the Ultra Volume app. While the app has a Pro version, you only need the free version to switch to the standard Android layout.
Step 2: Switch to Stock Android’s volume slider
Open Ultra Volume and choose Start. Turn on the Accessibility switch at the command prompt and you’ll be taken to the Accessibility page in Settings. Choose “Ultra Volume” from the menu, turn on the toggle and choose “Allow”.
On the Ultra Volume main page, select Skin. Select “Android 10” from the list. If you now press the volume rocker, the Android 10 volume control panel will appear.
Step 3: customize accent colors (optional)
As you can see, the accent colors are all wrong if you go for this pixel look. To change it, select “Settings” from the Ultra Volume main menu and select “Accent Color”.
Selecting this will change the accent color for your current theme. Using both themes, you can change the other theme’s accent color by clicking the other theme button and selecting “Accent Color.”
By default, pixel devices are set to blue. We did the hard work for you and found exactly the blue you use for dark theme and light. Select the text box and enter the following hex code (ignore the “#”):
Light – # 1a73e8
Dark – # 8ab4f8
