Step 2: Configure the App for Shortcut Keys on LG Devices

One bad news for LG devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop and older is that you cannot reconfigure the Volume Down button. However, you can still change the mapping for the Volume Up button and associate it as a shortcut to launch any installed app.

Moreover, you can also choose to disable the shortcut button if you find it be more annoying than helpful. Once you have selected the correct shortcut keys on LG devices, feel free to exit the app and continue.

Once you have the shortcut key configured, go ahead and give it a shot and it should work just fine. Do share your thoughts on your favorite shortcut to use with the LG devices in the comments section down below.
