    I've just rolled out my first update with Unity Mediation, replacing Admob.

    I've already started receiving email complaints about the ads not respecting the user's volume settings. Is there currently a way to set the ads' volume?

    Hi @Etiens ,
    Unfortunately Mediation has little control over the ads content and display. We only call the ad network's libraries and tell them to show the ad. If you have issues with a particular ad network, I would suggest you contact them directly.

    With Admob I had the option to set the ads' volume by calling MobileAds.SetApplicationVolume(), is that never going to be an option with Unity Mediation? A lot of these ads are blasting at full volume and I definitely understand how it can be unpleasant for players. Or maybe an option to start ads muted? I believe that was something that could be done with the old Unity Ads.

    If it is available with admob we may be able to work with this. I will bring this up to the team and see if we can offer a similar option.
    Thanks for the feedback!
