Change notification volume

    Going DND stops notifications all together. What would be nice is to still have notifications but just be able to lower the volume of them without having to lower the volume of your entire system.

    This is such a needed feature. I don't want to get rid of notifications, but I play with a Desktop mic, and in order to hear people, I have to have discord at a set volume, and in doing so, I make it so everyone can hear my notification sounds.

    I want to turn down just the notification sounds so they're not as loud, but audible to me(and not people I'm voice chatting)

    God I hate it when I am deep into a game and one of my friends start messaging me BOBOOP BOBOOP BOBOOP BOBOOP

    And no, DND is not a solution. (Is your car too loud? Turn it off! derrr)

    And no, turning Discord down in the volume mixer is not a solution (Is your car too loud? Put in ear plugs! derrr)

    Same problem here. When I can hear people notifications blast my ears off. And when I adjust the volume for okayish volume of the notifications, then I cannot hear anyone in voice chat. I have notification sounds disabled because of that problem, but that makes me miss calls, for example :-(

    Having a separate volume slider for notifications specifically is only logical. I think it would be fair to say at this point that if the discord team HASN'T been asked to do this hundreds of times or AREN'T currently in the process of adding it, they don't use their own application enough.

    I'm getting ready to dive into the internals and change the hard value of the notification volume or sound because of the lack of flexibility regarding it. You either turn ALL of discord down which (as mentioned above) isnt a solution it's a band-aid, and turning off notifications or sound entirely through DND which means then you don't get ANY notifications. No notifications wouldn't be bad, if there was a timeline/area somewhere for you to see all of the notifications that you missed while you were on dnd (across all servers) but that sure as hell isn't on discord either.

    It really feels like the discord team is content with the state of the application and aren't working on the QOL improvements that users actually want...

    I have to keep all my friends on mute so that I don't go deaf. I will be sitting at my desk working when suddenly "beep BEEP!" "beep BEEP!" "beep BEEP!" "beep BEEP!" "beep BEEP!" "beep BEEP!" Why is it so loud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, PLEASE implement a feature so that if someone messages me multiple times in quick succession, I dont have to hear loud BEEP BEEP for every single message! I have people who like to message me a lot. I don't need to hear a beep for EVERY TIME they message. I only need to hear ONE beep, to indicate that I have unread messages. Not a beep for EVERY Message.

    My solution is just to keep everyone on mute and have to check discord occasionally to see if I have any new messages. Not ideal.

    Another needed feature easy to implement, but as always Discord team doesn't give a sh*t  ...

  • JoHegl

    Adding to my previous comment...On Windows 10 (and maybe other versions) this is sort of implemented via the regular system sound volume sliders. The preferences are called "app volume and device preferences".

    Discord shows 2 sliders there for me (see screenshot). The upper one is for notifications and the lower one for voice as it seems. Problem is: Windows seems to forget this setting sometimes and blows my ears out again.

    That forgetting might have to do with the way Discord is deployed as an app. Maybe after a Discord update Windows thinks it is another app? Idk. This is just speculation, but it has happened to me sadly.

    But for what it's worth... this possibility might help some of you... maybe.

    I too would appreciate a volume system for different sounds like how it is in some video games that have separate volume for music and sfx.

  • iCarr

    I can't believe a google search of "Lower Discord notification volume" really brought me to a ticket where people asked 2 weeks ago for such a basic feature. 

    This is wild. 

    Just put a volume slider in the "Notifications" category. Boom done. 


  • НаПодлете

    Please add this feature as soon as possible

  • НаПодхвате

    Discord, can you handle this firstly-needed feature?

  • Science Fiction

    of course you need to add this feature now

  • НаПодхвате

    Guys, whoever reading this - send link to this thread to your friends please, or we will never see this thing in future.

  • Schrödinger's Cat

    Discord guys, please implement this feature, it really si needed! 

  • uzi

    bruh discord can we get this please 

  • Toniopixy

    Absolutely ! This should be a thing. I want to keep hearing the notifications but i dont want it to be THAT loud... And i dont have a double discord volume slider in the volume mixer.

  • Kanna

    plss notification volume slider for the love of discord users. we need this

  • Syrant

    Please add in a volume slider for application sounds

    The degree at which I keep the client (comfortable volume from my speakers, especially in an apartment complex) makes me miss 80% of pings due to how quiet the notification is. I honestly want to say it has gotten even quieter but the volume has not been touched in windows or on the speakers. It's either I miss almost all pings or every other application sound is way too loud. It's genuinely been bothering me for about a year and I like everything else about discord BUT this inability to change notification volume.

    It's one single feature that people clearly want, please do something about this.

    I hope this will be fixed soon, thank you.

  • Burnz

    Give us a notification volume slider already, it's a basic feature and should have been implemented a long time ago.

  • Major_Sandwich

    I really need a notification volume slider

  • celer

    Please implement a notification volume slider? I've moved onto a system that resets the two volume sliders back into one VERY frequently and it is VERY inconvenient and disorienting to have a notification blast at 80% system volume after I'd already been careful to manually adjust it earlier. It's downright unconscionable that this hasn't been a thing all along. 

  • dirtorbust

    I can't believe a google search of "Lower Discord notification volume" really brought me to a ticket where people asked over 1 year ago for such a basic feature. 

    This is wild. Just put a volume slider in the "Notifications" category. Boom done. 

    ...The volume output sliders in WIN 10 used to change my mic level. Overhaul the whole thing please

  • Skarrum

    I literally cancelled my nitro over stuff like this. They'll bend over backwards to implement stuff no one asked for, and no one needed. Then proceed to not implement extremely nice QOL changes people have asked for that can't take more than a few dozen lines of code.

  • Plamen.Andonov

    I logged in here for first time just to bump this topic.
    Like, My Dudes, are you serious, don't you use your own software?
    Haven't you noticed how annoyingly loud notifications BEEP's can be while at the same time you do prefer sound feedback on new notficiations?
    Make a damn slider.

  • spooks7er

    Let's hope 2021 will be a better year for our ears.

  • Cyñical

    Please make this an option! I'm really sick of having to mute all notifications and miss messages, all because there isn't a simple volume slider for them. Windows mixer doesn't work because it eventually resets the separate sliders to having the same top volume, so every few days notifs will be crazy loud again. I genuinely don't understand why this hasn't been implemented yet.

  • MazeFrame

    Concerning the "solution" above, this is how I want this to be set up (100% is for voice):
    Restarting discord or the computer will reset both to 100%.

  • Zombie

    I can't believe this has been a heavily-reported problem for YEARS and discord refuses to get a single programmer to spend 10 minutes adding a notification volume slider in the client

  • KuD

    Do you read the thread? Have any of the replies been about not being able to find the mixer? The mixer resets, meaning nothing you do in the mixer ultimately matters.

    The only halfway good answer is the guy who said to use a third party discord but I already did that in the past and eventually discord updated and overwrote it, on top of the obvious issue of needing a third party copy because the developers have entirely ignored an issue that has popped up in countless threads over the years.
