When connecting or disconnecting a headset to the phone while playing music using Android Pandora, the volume automatically switches to a previous higher setting.

The same happens with bluetooth connect disconnect and when switching streaming or music app, say Pandora to Media Player.

This is really a nuisance and a bug in my mind. When you are listening to music tye volume should simply be assumed correct as set by user using the volume buttons or software internal buttons.

Any accessory change should result exactly in NO change in volume. It doesnt matter what accessory is plugged in my expectation is always the same Volume.

If Jolla can tell me one use case where previous memory per app or accessory is relevant please explain.

I'm not Jolla but I can explain: my phone's volume is always set to 0 to avoid having sound played by accident in the open space. When I connect my bluetooth headset, the volume is automatically set to the listening volume. That's actually an awesome feature. I don't want the speaker volume to be set automatically when I disconnect my headset, do you?

Music will stop playing anyway when you disconnect your headset (with native apps of course), so no nuisance at all.

@Sthocs thats ome use case, the problem is i have three bluetooth devices that i connect to at different times and that have also independent volume regulation so i would like the volume in the phone to not be remembered and either just go to the forced command, 0 in your case or a standard say 20 out of hundret every time something is connected, i prefer consistency and knowing what will happen, because i cant predict/remember what external volume setting i had on these other bluetooth devices before.

Each device has a different listening volume due to different hardware. So what do you want to remember? Just plug the device and it will be at a suitable volume level to listen your stuff (because you set this level the previous time). Your use case confirms that it's a perfect feature, I don't get why it bothers you.
