How does the Volume Gestures feature work?

After installing the update, you need to turn on the feature as it remains disabled by default. On your Huawei smartphone or tablet, open the AI Life app and:

  • Go to the Earbuds section
  • Select the Experimental Section
  • Click on the ‘Adjust Volume’ option
  • Tap and hold the ball or bean of the earbud to adjust the volume

Once enabled, long-press the earphones until you hear the ‘beep’ sound. Hereafter, adjust the volume by holding the listening ball to increase the volume and tapping or holding the bean to decrease it. It can support up to three levels of sound at a time.

If you want to continue to increase or decrease the volume even after the three levels, wait for about 2 seconds and then repeat the above process. If the gestures do not respond, increase the force on the earbuds.
