  • In the “Developer options” menu, make sure that “Use developer options” is enabled and then scroll down until you see the “Disable absolute volume” setting.
  • Make sure that the “Disable absolute volume” setting is set to off.

Next, go to the Settings menu of your Pixel Buds.

Afterwards, select “Edit the name of the device” and then rename it to “ABS-DO-ENABLE” (without the quotation marks).
