    Default Audio Boost in Latest version of OS

    Hi,

    Apparently, some people have a new 'switch' in the 'sounds and notifications' section of the settings screen that allows 'Audio Boost' to be turned on and off. Others (including me) don't...
    Is it a locale based thing? Does anyone know?
    Could people say on this thread where (which country) they live, and whether they have the 'Audio Boost' switch in the 'Sounds and Notifications' screen...(?)

    It's a Euro thing. If you go into Settings/Language, and change it to English/US, you'll get the audio boost button.

    Ahh, Ok, I'll give it a try when I get home...
    One other question - what IS Audio Boost? Is it just a louder-volume thing??

    I am in Austria and have the latest OS update. My country and language settings have always been set to English and the U.S. But nothing has changed. The only audio boost I have is for headphones and was there before this update. Any suggestions?

    Audio Boost is a headphone only thing. The Euros limit headphone volume to prevent hearing loss. Audio Boost overrides these limits.

    Guess I already had audio boost because I always updated using the US update via a proxy server. I updated this last time with the "foreign" version. Are there any (major) differences between the US and foreign versions? If so, maybe I should do an update via proxy again.

    I couldn' t have said it any better SOM.
    Do as you would be done by and 12 pence to the shilling (or 100 cents to the dollar).

    Oh deary deary me. Not someone else that truly understands that there are 12 pence to the shilling and 240 pennies to the pound? The pasties are out and ready for you along with the Brandy (not French, don't like the Europeans anymore), Ouzo, Bourbon, Red Wine, Tequila, Gin, Baileys, Martinis (home made).

    I am from uk and wondered where audio boost was after update.I just read your post,and the guy who said you need language set to uk/us is right if you set to us the headphone audio boost option is there ,if you put language back to uk it disappears.not sure why they have done this as it should be an update for all countrys.

    Simply because the US is not a member of the EU.

    P's. They don't eat pasties either but don't hold that against them.

    Must be because the uk had the feature all along. It popped up for me ages when using headphones.

    Exactly the same for me. The thing is that the button is such a nice one. How come they only get it in the US?

    Come to think of it we have pasties and they don't so I suppose it's only fair.

    Now I am intrigued! If I knew how to work that Google thingy I would try to find it. However as I'm less than endowed in the mental department, what do they look like?
