If you're using OverDrive for Android or Chromebook (v3.3+), you can boost the volume in audiobooks that are a little too quiet (even when they're turned all the way up).

Note: On an Android device, this feature requires Android OS 4.1+.

Enabling volume boost

  1. Open an audiobook from the app bookshelf.
  2. Tap the Volume boost icon to turn on volume boost. When volume boost is enabled, the icon will look like this: Blue volume boost icon.

Adjusting the volume boost level

Every audiobook sounds a little different, so you may need to adjust the volume boost for each one. Follow the steps below to increase or decrease the volume boost level.

  1. Select an audiobook from the app bookshelf.
  2. Select the Settings icon.
  3. Click or tap Advanced settings.
  4. Update the When volume boost is enabled... setting by selecting the plus or minus signs to adjust the boost level.
