Moreover, sound lowering on Android phones is also commonly caused by low-quality headphones that you bought from untrusted sources. If this problem is happening to you, simply try a different pair of headphones. Also, look for headphones that specify Android compatibility on the package.
Another reason for “volume turns down by itself” issue is that some Android phones aim to add a feature to protect your ears against too loud of a volume. You can now if your phone has the automatic volume limitation if there is a warning pop-up warning you about potential risks while you’re turning up the volume. Even if you bypass the warning, the pop-up automatically appears every 24 hours. How annoying it is, right? but think further, this may be “safe” for you.
