Speaker volume too weak
« on: December 01, 2013, 12:04:21 PM »
This is my first tablet. Is there a way to increase the output from the speakers? I have tried various apps from the play store but none make any difference that I can detect. Also i'd rather pay for something that works well than have to put up with a lot of ads. Thanks Julie

Julie, tablets notoriously have weak speakers and are best used with a decent set of headphones. Another option is a good bluetooth external speaker. I have recently purchased a bluetooth speaker and will post the results when it arrives. As for volume control apps, I have never seen one that is an effective solution, so don't worry about the ads on the free ones and save your money on the no ad version.

Check the volume settings on every app and tablet as well. I've had several tablets / iPads, and the Nexus 10 is by far the best with its front facing speakers, you've got to have something set low.

Thank you both. It's just that two of us want to watch videos together so maybe I'll try an external speaker. Perhaps I could Bluetooth to the TV speakers since we're usually in the same room as the TV. I'll investigate.

You could also look at a Google Chromecast, for $35 you can watch videos from your tablet on your TV,  if you have WiFi. I can play Netflix and local video stored on my tablet using the Chromecast.
