Hey everyone,

I noticed when the now playing screen is up there is now a delay when trying to change the volume with the Digital Crown. You’ve got to do an almost complete turn before the volume slider becomes engaged. I’m sure they did this to prevent accidental changes. However, it now feels much less precise to make small changes because you’ve got to look very closely to ensure the volume changing is engaged. I wish this was a toggle-ble option.

I noticed this as well. As someone whose sleeves frequently accidentally changed the volume, I'm hoping I grow to love this change, but I agree it should have a toggle. Time to hit https://www.apple.com/feedback/watch.html! (isn't it hilarious how long it takes for them to update the version selectors with their new OS releases? oh Apple web team...)

This has been bothering me as well. Noticed it immediately after updating to watchOS 7. It’s inconsistent as well. Sometimes it’s immediately responsive and sometimes I have to tap the audio icon at the bottom of the screen to wake it up, then adjust with the crown.

I think this is why some here think this feedback section is just a digital round file. Hard to imagine anyone is seriously paying attention to feedback from it when no one is keeping it updated with current info.

Ok full confession: I am a dingus maximus. I didn’t realize that Overcast had been installed on my watch and it was the default player I was frustrated with. Uninstalled it and Now Playing is the default. It works great for me. That’s Overcast with the orange and minimalism.
