  • Android 15 Beta 2 includes a new collapsible volume panel, which can be accessed by pressing the three-dot menu from the volume control screen.
  • The expanded volume panel also comes with a persistent media output switcher and new animations.

Android 15 just received its newest release, Beta 2. App developers and enthusiasts can install Android 15 Beta 2 on their Pixel devices to test their apps. If you can live with an older build, you can install Android 15 beta on other OEM devices, too. On the Pixels, the latest Beta 2 brings a revamped, collapsible volume panel, marking a big UI change.

We’ve reported on Android 15’s revamped volume panel before. The code for the feature was present in Android 15 Developer Preview 2, but we had to activate it manually. As Mishaal Rahman notes, the revamped panel is standard on the Beta 2, and you can access it with your phone’s volume buttons.
