Volume control in android

Hi Support team,
I have implemented the JWPlayer on the website,that will be supported in any device, including Android device, iOS device, and any web on desktop.
Since, in the iOS devices, the volume control bar is showed on the player in full screen mode.

I am unsure if JWPlayer can show the volume control in Android device. Will it just setting 1 value to make to shown? If the volume control cannot be shown, could you give me an explanation in detail?

The volume button is not shown on mobile devices because they have hardware keyboards. On iOS web the only reason you are seeing a volume button is because the video is actually playing in QuickTime and not our player. iOS 10 will introduce inline video playback for HTML5.

On Android however, inline video playback is supported and what you see on your screen is our player and it’s compact UI. Volume buttons were omitted since the device has hardware buttons as mentioned.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
