Plenty of Surface RT owners have complained about the low volume level of their tablets, but Microsoft apparently listened to feedback and addressed the issues with the latest Patch Tuesday updates.
According to a Microsoft blog post that details the latest improvements made to Surface tablets, the maximum volume of the built-in speaker has also been increased with the new firmware update.
“Lastly, a firmware update has boosted the volume of the speakers on your Surface RT. Depending on what I’m doing I might plug in a headset or use external Bluetooth speakers, but day-to-day I do use the speakers on the device more than either of these. The boost in volume is great for games, videos, Lync, and Skype calls,” the company explained.
Basically, all you need to do is to download the firmware update and apply it on your Surface tablet using the built-in Windows Update feature.
