Hyprland sound settings

Hi! Is there a way to make the hyprland sound setting as a dropdown? I find it a little gimmikie that a whole widget is opened just to change the output device or to change the volume.

Here are the inxi:

I found nothing on google about this. I was wondering if there is a way to change the the sound control into a dropdown in stead of a widget.

There are some options to change sound volume.

As always, no garuda-inxi …

What were your search terms for whoogle?

To change the volume you can just scroll on it. For changing the device you need to open the widget, unless you script a solution on your own and set it to a Waybar action.
