Volume buttons control the ringer volume

I just discovered that the volume buttons on my FP3, contrary to any other device running Android 9, change the ringer volume when nothing is playing (as opposed to the media volume) which is rather annoying.

Is there any way to change this? Thanks!

I created this thread. You are welcome to add you change request to the first topic. Feel free to edit, it is a wiki.

I observe that behaviour also on my Fairphone 2. Is this not the standard behaviour on Android?

I know this behaviour from different smartphones, too.

Now, Android 9.0 Pie has flipped things around, giving media volume the limelight. (source)

Not at FP3 :wink:
