Windows 10’s volume controls could be getting a big overhaul in the near future

One of the most essential features of Windows 10 – the operating system’s volume controls – could be getting a big overhaul in the near future. As Windows Latest reports, a new preview build of Windows 10, Build 19577, contains code that suggests there will be new volume controls.

Back in 2018, a leak suggested that Microsoft has been planning on significantly changing Windows 10’s volume control in a future release. However, despite Microsoft updating Windows 10 several times over the years, the operating system’s volume controls have remained unchanged.At the moment, the way you control the volume in Windows 10 is pretty basic, but it looks like Microsoft is planning to radically overhaul it so that it’s much more useful.

It appears that Microsoft is planning to move all these controls to the new volume flyout, which you can access by clicking the volume icon in the system tray.Currently, taskbar flyout only allows users to control the volume of the headphone or speakers, but a future Windows 10 update will also allow you to access the media controls.

The new flyout also shows the album cover of the music along with the app name that’s playing the music. In theory, the new flyout should work with all the existing apps that already support Windows 8 era left-aligned volume flyout.In our testing, the updated flyout launches only when we click on its icon in the system tray. It currently doesn’t support keyboard multimedia keys.

There’s a chance that the new volume controls would become available for users in the Windows Insider Program later this year, but the arrival of the updated volume bar is still uncertain.Obviously, these changes will not ship with Windows 10’s 20H1 (version 2004 update), which has been finalized and is set for public rollout in April/May 2020.
