Google has just released the second beta for its Android 15 release, just a couple of days ago. In the update, it introduces many new features and UI improvements, one of which appears to be inspired by Samsung’s One UI 6’s volume control menu.

But that is just scratching the surface. On top of what Samsung usually offers, Android 15 adds features that are related to media playback.

As it is stated in 9to5Google’s post, Google has improved the volume control UI with its Android 15 build. The design of the control is pretty reminiscent of Samsung’s One UI 6.0, which shows an overflow menu when you expand the volume control slider. From the expanded overflow menu, it lets you change the volume of alarms, call alerts, call volume, media playback, and notifications.

But, the new improved look is not all there is to it. Android 15 will also include a separate volume slider for media playing on a Google Cast device (like on a Google Home or TV). One feature not available in One UI but present in Android 15 is the ability to change the media playback from one Google Cast device to another. Moreover, this whole overflow menu has Material You colors.

This overflow menu also features a button to activate or deactivate Live Captions. This feature already exists in the overflow menu for volume control on One UI 6.

This new design appeared last month but wasn’t final, and it has now appeared in Android 15 Beta 2. The Google Cast media output switcher could appear in One UI 7.0, which could debut on Galaxy phones and tablets later this year.
