[All Platforms] We need a more ACCURATE volume slider

Proposal for a logarithmic volume slider (applies to all platforms).


Currently the volume slider in the Spotify apps is linear. This causes the volume slider to be inaccurate and unpleasant to use because the perception of the human ear is logarithmic.

In other words, as it is now, the volume slider is hypersensitive in the range where we hear less, and loose or imprecise in the range where we hear more.
The result is that tuning to the desired volume is not really a nice experience and that the left half of the slider bar is basically useless.

 

Please see https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1165026/what-algorithms-could-i-use-for-audio-volume-level

 

This has been suggested multiple times from the community, but probably the filters there have kept it below your attention.

Hopefully this message will finally reach someone at Spotify who is passionate about a great listening experience.


Thanks!

And please make it bigger. It's almost impossible to control the volume for your sonos system with the tiny slider on the right (desktop app mac). Just make a volume button with a huge slider that opens, nobody cares about the additional click. A mistake is easily made right now.
