Snap Center: Press LB or RB to adjust Volume Balance

The new Snap Center has a "Press X to Record That" prompt, which gave me an idea:

I'd like to be able to adjust the Sound Mixer slider from within the Snap Center by pressing LB and RB.

This will allow users to adjust the volume balance between main and snapped games/apps without having to launch the Settings app.

    This would make the process easier and faster than what is currently required. It would help to improve the overall experience of the player.

    YES! There should be quick access to volume mixer while in snap. I would love this. Hurry up, Xbox.

    Adjusting the volume of an app (Pandora or media player) in the app, separate of the game volume while its snapped so that you can actually hear the game volume

    I would like to control the main volume from my console maybe you could use the double tap xbox button menu. Something simple would be nice thanks and great job with the updates.

    Why is this taking forever to be implemented? I cannot listen to music while playing Rainbow six. I have the snap media player at the lowest level and its still higher than the game.

    Even when you adjust volume of snapped app in settings it would be better to have more than 6 volume choices.
    When playing games and playing music on Pandora even when app is set on one bar, the quietest past muted it is still quite loud to the game

    It would be awesome to have a way to change the volume of snapped apps separate to the rest of the console. I usually want to snap a basketball game or some TV to the side while playing a game but I can never get the volume settings correct. Typically the TV snap is significantly louder than the game.

    I think the split screens should have a different volume. I wanted to play a game while my sister wanted to watch tv. It was impossible for me to turn down the volume on the gaming side of the tv, so i think they should make this on a new update

    have you ever been watching some thing and then something happen in your game you want to hear wouldn't it be nice if you could just turn down the snap volume with out have to go to setting .

    The Xbox can currently change the volume of my speakers using the Kinect, but it's hard to fine tune to get it just right. The volume may shoot up too high or the incremental adjustment is too low and I have to repeat myself over and over. Can we dedicate the d-pad up and down buttons to adjust the volume on all media apps? Any app that plays or streams movies, tv and music?

    Allow to change the volume of the snapped app separately from the main app in order to allow for the perfect balance for you.
