YouTube now stabilizes audio volume on Fire TV, Android TV, and Google TV

The YouTube app on Fire TV, Android TV, and Google TV devices has rolled out a new feature that stabilizes video volume. Google says it “balances the range between quiet and loud, continuously adjusting volume levels to reduce variations in sound.” The feature is on by default, but you can turn it off under the Settings menu of any video. Once you turn it off, it remains off for all videos until you turn it back on. Some streaming devices and soundbars have volume leveling features of their own, so you may want to experiment with turning some of them off if you’re experiencing audio issues.

    Thanks for the info. I have spent $$ on a home theatre so I can enjoy content to its fullest. Your article preserved that.

    It is disappointing that the default rewards folks with cheap underperforming systems to the harm of those who have invested in systems with decent dynamics.

    The party making changes should be the one advising users of any changes to defaults…

      What does this have to do with commercials playing at 2x the volume if they can get away with it??

        Ditto. Do not understand what his point is, and agree that commercial volumes have been 2-3 times content DB levels.
