Turn down Assistant volume on Sonos One?

Is it possible to turn down the Assistant volume on the Sonos One independently of the music volume?

I have my Sonos One fairly loud but don't need the Assistant to shout!

I'll make sure your voice is heard with the team. It's not the first request for a similar feature from the community. I don't have any details as to if it'll happen, but I'll make sure the team knows people are still asking.

I agree. Ruins the experience. Should be adjustable.

I turned off Alexa for this reason. Hope the team will fix it soon.
Also would love to see the option to turn down Google Assistant's voice volume. Quite annoying to be listening music at a reasonably loud volume and then have GA shout responses back at you. Totally agree with OP
Yes I would like to +1 being able to turn down the Google Assistance voice volume. It's very jarring. Almost tempted to return my Sonos One now.

We're in luck.
Just found this at 9to5Google

Does anybody see the Equalizer settings for their Sokos One? I couldn’t find them and I have the latest version of Google Home for iOS as listed in article.

ah man... this is disappointing.

I did not even think about it before posting the link.
The Google assistant settings for Sonos is in the Sonos app and unfortunately I do not see the equalizer settings there.
I'd like to add my voice to this request as well. The volume differential isn't too bad if you're listening to pop music on Apple Music or the like, but classical music on IDAGIO tends to be much quieter, and Google Assistant is extremely loud in comparison.

Just a little slider in the SONOS app would be nice (bonus points if GA could pay attention to the noise level in the room and respond accordingly.. but I'll be happy with a simple slider!)
I would very much like this feature as well!

Unfortunately, this is a Google Assistant Issue so we should be asking them. They seem to have something coming down the pipeline but who knows how long it will take to actually have it working.
