BUG: Audio volume warning displayed for Bluetooth sound devices.

When connecting to a bluetooth (a2dp) audio device the volume warnings are displayed and the volume is lowered. This has been observed both with a bluetooth headset and with a bluetooth car stereo.

Most (probably all, as far as I know) bluetooth audio devices have their own volume controls so having the volume changed is unnecessary and annoying.

I think it's actually not bug but a feature as most headphones says that it's unhealthy to use more than 80% if max vol., but I would improve it to act like that only for new device or as optional setting

I believe it's a duplicate of https://together.jolla.com/question/676/suggestion-setting-to-turn-off-sound-level-warning/

Please vote there.

That one is about disabling the legitimate warning for regular plugged in devices. This is different as Bluetooth devices should never have a warning in the first place since they can be expected to have their own volume conteols.

Please everyone stop closing other peoples questions without giving them time to respond to your concerns, or this site will degenerate very quickly and become utterly useless.

@Vaskinn Well, as far as I can read the referenced question speaks about "audio devices" and therefore even BT devices. Nevertheless I reopen your question for a different reason. Here the main part would be the automatic lowering of the volume control while the other question handles the warning pat only.

There's no need to get angry when a question is closed. With a reasonable arguments it can be reopened anytime. From my point of view it's better to close an eventual duplicate asap. Users' votes do not get dispersed as there is currently no way to merge the questions/comments/votes.
