When I updated my old KitKat smartphone to Android Lollipop for the very first time, I had to tweak some of the settings like display brightness, audio settings, vibration and so on. But since then I have modified the audio settings so many times, that I no longer remember the default values anymore. Now when the earphone sound completely stopped in my smartphone, I decided to change the settings back to their usual values but without knowing default values, it is not an easy task. Fortunately, Android Lollipop allows you to reset the audio profile back to the factory state.
If you messed up the audio settings in your Android Lollipop device, then you can also reset these values to their default state in the following manner:
- Open the Android system settings and select Sound & notification category from the settings screen.
- On the sound and notification screen, you would see all the audio profiles available on your smartphone. Select the audio profile that you want to reset and then touch the menu icon (three vertical dots) and select Reset profile.
- You would be shown a warning before you can select OK to proceed and reset the audio profile settings to their default values.
- Once the audio profile settings have been set to their default values, you can again choose to customize them to your own taste.
Conclusion: Android Lollipop allows you to reset the audio profile settings so that you can recover from any accidental mess up of the audio settings in your smartphone. This way you do not have to reset the complete Android device, but only the audio profiles.
