Looking at the question we have here, how to turn FaceTime volume down and music up, one might say is this possible or probably not.
At first, you may think that it is not necessarily possible to turn FaceTime volume down and music up, but that may not be the case as there’s a way to go about this.
So right in this article I will explain how you can reduce the facetime volume, and in turn increase the music volume.
How to turn FaceTime volume down and music up
To turn down facetime volume and increase the music volume, you will have to set your facetime to microphone to spectrum.
Kindly note that if you use a headphone during a facetime call while listening to music on your iPhone, it will increase the sound of the music.
So if your music is low, kindly use a headphone and it will fix the problem.
Now let me go in detail on how you can listen to music whilst receiving a facetime call.
For this question of how to turn down facetime volume and music up, I will explain it in two ways and which is;
- When you only want to listen to music while on facetime call.
- When you want the other person to listen to the music as well.
Now let’s proceed.
1. When you only want to listen to music while on facetime call
If you’re listening to music and you suddenly receive an incoming facetime video or audio call, while on facetime call, all you have to do is to pull down the panel and you will see Facetime Microphone.
Tap on the microphone option and you will be presented with three options and which are;
- Voice Isolation
- Wide spectrum
Now what you have to do is to select Wide spectrum and oonce you have done that, your music will become a bit louder.
If you’re exactly looking for a way to completely reduce the facetime audio while increasing the music volume, I’m sorry that is not yet possible to do on iphone or any other Apple devices.
The purpose of wide spectrum mode is to brings in and enhances background noises around you.
So this means that if you are playing music on your iPhone, it will help to increase or bring out the sound from the music you’re playing on your iPhone irrespective of the fact that you’re on a facetime call.
So anytime you’re playing a music on your iPhone and receives an incoming facetime call, all you need to do is to pull down the control center, tap on FaceTime microphone and set it Wide Spectrum.
Once you have done that, you will hear the music from the music player, and as well as the voice on your FaceTime call.
Like I said earlier, the music may not necessarily be as loud as when you’re not receiving calls on your iPhone or any media interruption.
2. The share option
Talking about how to turn FaceTime volume down and music up, if the main purpose is to let the other person on the phone to hear the music as well, then you have to select the share option on FaceTime call menu.
Let’s get started on the procedure.
On FaceTime call, tap on the screen to open the FaceTime menu, and right there you will see the shareplay icon as shown below.
Tap on the shareplay icon and select apple music.
Tap on the Apple music icon and it will open the music app. Select the song you want to play and hit on the play button.
Once the song starts to play, on the person’s side or facetime, the person will see the option to join shareplay.
Now it is left for the other person to accept the request and tap on open button as shown below.
Once the other person tap on the open button, he or she can listen to the song.
But remember, the person must have an apple music account with an active subscription.
If there’s no active subscription, the person will be liable to listen to the song only once, others songs you played will not available to the person until he or she subscribe to Apple music.
When talking about how to turn FaceTime volume down and music up, these are the only options you have and there’s no other way as of the time of writing this article.
