    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. When streaming in a compressed format (like Dolby Digital), the OS does not have access to the PCM audio stream in order to control the volume. Currently, we do not plan to release a fix for this problem.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team
