How to Boost Chromebook Volume Beyond Maximum

Is your Chromebook audio output too low even though the volume is set to the max? You are not alone! It is one of the most common complaints among Chromebook users.

Here are some tips that have worked for many users to improve their Chromebook audio:

Before you do anything else, close any unused tabs or apps on your Chromebook, as too many opened tabs can impact the audio output.

Max out Everything

The first thing to do is to turn up everything to the maximum. Begin by changing the ChromeOS volume slider to maximum. To do that, click on the clock icon to open the volume slider.

Next, increase the volume of the particular app or webpage. For example, if you are watching a YouTube video, increase the YouTube volume to the maximum.

Install Volume Master

Volume Master is an extension for Chromebooks to increase the volume by 6 times.

Download it from the Chrome web store, and try it. It can give your Chromebook a 600% volume boost.

Hardware Reset

The volume issue may be due to an OS glitch. The best way to fix this is by hardware resetting your Chromebook.

Here’s how to do that:

Don’t worry; you won’t lose any data on your Chromebook.

  1. Turn off your Chromebook.
  2. Wait for 1 minute.
  3. After 1 minute, press and hold the Power and Refresh buttons on the keyboard together until your Chromebook starts up.
