Microsoft hides cool experimental audio control tool in Windows 11 preview build

Microsoft is experimenting with a new audio control feature in Windows 11 which allows users to control the volume of various apps in Quick Settings.

Volume Mixer, as it is known, is currently available in Preview 25281 (opens in new tab) from the Dev Channel in the Windows 11 Insider Program. It’s being compared to software like Discord and ear trumpet due to similar capabilities of adjusting volume levels for different audio sources. For example, you can keep the volume on a Skype call loud while muting the music playing on Spotify and have WhatsApp somewhere in the middle for notifications. It’s a level of management not currently seen, as Windows 11 only offers universal tweaks. Users typically use third-party apps like EarTrumpet to gain this level of control.
