1. I noticed that the volume when playing a video keeps dropping randomly and I need to adjust it from time to time. 

2. The default notification volume like taking a screen shot, and the dial tone can't be adjusted and they're too loud, even when putting the "Ring & notification volume" to the lowest setting.

Hasn't anyone replied to this yet? I'm having the same problem and many others have posted about this on Reddit as well.

Same problem here.  And also many others on Reddit.

Google Support consistently tells me 1) I'm the only one who has reported this issue to them, 2) I should factory reset my phone.

On both counts I am not amused.

Same issue here, with my Pixel 5.

This is a volume bug, plain and simple. We deserve an answer from Google about why this is happening and whether they can fix it in a software update. This never happened with Google Pixel 1, 2, 3, or 4.

I am FED UP with the lack of response from Google Support representatives, who consistently tell us that "no one else has reported this issue," which as you can see from the MANY posts about it, is clearly untrue. I have begun contacting media about this issue to hopefully cause Google to finally give us some answers.

There is definitely an issue. Lowering the Ring (system) volume does change it, but even the lowest is loud.

Oh and the Facebook app plays its sound effects at deafening volumes (such as the Like button). Try it if you don't believe me.

Same issue here guys.
Pixel 5, brand new, and extremely loud dial tones, camera shutter, lock screen, and even the whatsapp voice memo sound (start/finish or even worse, the cancel send).

Crazy for the 5th version of a Pixel to have these problems.  I'm tempted to go back to my old Pixel 2.  It didn't have this problem.  The only workaround is to silence all sounds on the settings screen.

My phone doesn't increase or decrease volume for bluetooth speaker when locked and I have to unlock the phone. When I do that, the range of volume control is tiny and the speaker is either too loud or too soft. I have to go to the speaker to increase or decrease the volume to a good level. This is not a problem with the speaker as I don't have any issues when using my Samsung phone or tablet.
