Volume control in 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Question whether we can control the system/master volume through an app has been asked by many. One of the reason for that is about having an app like this. This one lets us define define profiles of different volume levels and has a background task that sets the profile as we schedule them. There are few similar apps already written that controls the phone's volume someway. Since Microsoft does not expose volume control through any API I understand that they all(most of them) managed to do it via ISimpleAudioVolume interface and it will not work in WP8.1. So most of these app are not working in 8.1. If Microsoft does not want 3rd party apps to control phone's resources then does it have any plan to have an app like these in future? Or is there already any possibility we could achieve such a functionality through some way? I like the app Quite hours but it will only silence not control over the volume levels.
