Are you desperately trying to figure out why Netflix’s audio is super quiet?
Sadly, this may happen if you’re using the wrong sound settings or a broken HDMI cable, or if you have outdated software and bugs.
You might find comfort in knowing that thousands of people are in the same situation as you. The good news is that you’ve come to the right place to solve this problem.
If Netflix’s volume is super quiet, you’ll need to check your volume levels and HDMI cable, use the correct sound settings, or restart your device. But, if that doesn’t work, try checking for any available updates or reinstalling the app.

Have you ever noticed that no matter how much you turn up the volume on your streaming device, your volume is still super quiet on Netflix?
This may happen if you’re using screen mirroring or AirPlay, or if you’re streaming content on your computer, and you didn’t check both volume controls (On Netflix and your device).
Don’t worry, though. Here’s how to do it:
Once you’ve adjusted Netflix’s volume, you’ll need to do the same for your device. Here’s how to do it on a Windows PC:
But, if you’re using a different device, or both volume controls are all the way up, chances are there’s a problem with your HDMI cable, or you’ve selected the wrong audio settings.
Don’t worry, though. Keep reading to learn how to fix this.
If you’re using an HDMI cable to transfer audio and video from one device to another (for example, from a gaming console to your TV), you might want to check it.
You see, if you keep your HDMI cable pressed against the wall, or tangled, it may be damaged. This could explain why Netflix’s volume is super quiet.
Try using a different HDMI cable to connect it to your streaming devices and TV. Assuming that Netflix’s volume is back to normal, then keep using the replacement.
But if you didn’t have a spare cable in your house, I recommend borrowing one from a friend or going to any electronics store to buy one.
You may not know this, but using the wrong sound settings could explain why Netflix’s volume is super low.
This is why I recommend checking what sound system you have and selecting the correct audio output.
You see, if you own a full surround system, you should look for a “surround sound” option while choosing the audio output. But, if you’re like me, and you’re just streaming content on a basic TV system, then you should look for the “TV speakers” option.
If you’d like detailed instructions on how to do it, please keep reading.
Play Station 3:
If you couldn’t find your device on the list above, please go to Google and search for “How to change [Your Device’s Name Goes Here] sound settings”.
Then, please go back to Netflix and try streaming any movie or TV show to see if the issue was solved.
If you’ve tried selecting the correct sound settings, but Netflix’s volume is still super quiet, you’ll need to restart your device.
I know, you’ve probably heard this advice multiple times before. But, believe me, this is one of the easiest ways to get rid of temporary coding bugs and shut down any crashed background processes that may be causing the issue.
If you have a Smart TV, you’ll need to unplug it from the power source, wait for a few minutes, and plug it back in.
But, if you have a tablet, phone, or PC, I recommend pressing the power button for a few seconds until your device turns off. Then, press it again to turn it back on.
You can also check your device’s manual or search on Google for detailed instructions.
Sometimes, coding bugs and other unexpected errors can cause many difficulties while trying to stream content, such as audio or buffering issues.
But don’t worry, Netflix probably got rid of these on its latest version.
You see, the app’s IT team is constantly working on new versions that are packed with fixes for the most common issues. These also include new features and improvements that will help you enjoy your movie night.
So, if your device didn’t install the app’s latest version automatically due to a faulty connection or a different error, you’ll need to manually update Netflix.
This may sound like a difficult thing to do, but it’s really quick and simple. The process may vary depending on your device’s model, but more often than not, you can do it by going to the app store, searching for Netflix, and clicking on the “Update” button.
Then, please make sure your device is running on its latest software version since having a fully updated app running in an outdated system could lead to experiencing multiple issues while trying to stream content.
Here’s how to update your device:
Remember, if you have a different device and don’t know how to update its software, please search on Google for “How to update my [Your Device’s Name Goes Here]”.
If Netflix is still super quiet after trying the 5 fixes above, chances are there’s a major problem with the app.
When this happens, the best thing you can do is delete and reinstall the app to get rid of any damaged files within it that didn’t go away by installing updates.
By doing this, you’ll be able to restart the app from scratch and get rid of other performance issues too.
Follow these simple instructions to uninstall Netflix:
Once you’ve uninstalled the app, please go to your device’s app store and download it again.
That about covers it!
If you take anything away, please remember that if Netflix’s volume is super quiet, you’ll need to check your volume levels, HDMI cable, and sound settings.
Moreover, you’ll need to update your app and device to avoid compatibility issues. But if that doesn’t work, don’t forget to reinstall the app.
