Google Assistant Volume.

Dear Sonos

As a Sonos user which uses your integration with google assistant I think it’s absolutely horrible that you can’t choose the volume on the assistant. It doesn’t even include a mode for the evening/night.
 

When I’m asking the assistant or for example turning of the lights in the night, assistant just screams out loud with the last playback volume and wakes up my whole family.

 

This basically ruins the whole experience and makes it unusable, I’m even thinking of ditching the assistant on the Sonos speakers and buying some nests instead which i think shouldn’t even be considered when already having a full Sonos system. 
 

Please address this issue asap, or at least release a quick fix.

is this still a thing? 

 

I thought I found my self on the BEAM adjusting the Google Assistant volume recently while randomly struggling with grouping and previous play source and muting. yeah, it was really weird. something ive not struggled with before. 

 

Anyway, I reflect the remarks above. the Google Assistant voice is WAY too loud! (it is not related to the previously played/set volume of the source audio)

 

Also, increased delay in actions such as turning the volume up of music. just me?

Hallo,

I have just bought a Sonos One to use in the bedroom and i was really surprised that I not could change the volume of the voice google assistant. Its absolute to high in a bedroom!

I hope you soon can add a solution or I have to buy a Google Nest…..and that is I not really what I want to do..

Hi Sonos, I have exactly the same request from @ArvidSonos that the volume of the google assistant is way too loud and there’s no way to toggle night mode like in other google home products, instead of saying “Turning of 2 lights”, a simple chime like the google products would be nice. That would be super useful and frankly not having to always lower the volume before going to bed. 
 

Could you guys please address this issue ASAP, at least a little update would be great. Thanks! 🙏
