How to know the device media volume is on mute or very low


My App is playing sounds with Cordova media plugin (ngCordova) and I realized I did hear nothing because the multimedia volume was on mute on my Android device! (Enabling it at the sound’s settings screen fixed it)

Nevertheless, this can also happen to the users. How can the App know the device volume is on mute or very low for stating the user or enabling it automatically?
There is a media.setVolume(1.0) method but it does not seem to work, at least in Android.

Thanks & Regards,
