I use google assistant a lot on my Sonos. It is frustrating that I couldn’t find a setting or toggle the sound of the voice or mute it. When I play soft music at night, the assistants voice is so intrusive.
I just want to support this request, but for the Move. Assistant volume is often much louder then music.
+1 from me too. Installed Assistant today after waiting months for it to arrive in my country. I’ll be disabling it soon because of this. I have my nest doorbell connected to my google assistant! Scared the hell out of me!
Same request here. The voice of Assistant is too loud compared to classical music for instance. It’s not pleasant to use.
Yep I'm in on this too, first thing really early in the morning. I've removed it and added it to see if there was a setting there .. nope
Absolutely ruining my Sonos experience. Wakes the whole house up when I try to use it.
Such a nightmare, last one awake in my family and headed to bed "Okay Google, turn everything off" cue incredibly loud voice assistant "OKAY! TURNING OFF THREE LIGHTS!"
Everyone in the house now wide awake.
We're in luck. Just found this at 9to5Googlehttps://9to5google.com/2019/07/20/google-home-assistant-volume/
Doesn't apply to the Sonos One speakers.
If there is no solution to this screaming assistant bullsht, these fancy shmancy speakers are going right back to the store.
By the way, I found a workaround: in the Sonos app under Settings>Services>Google Assistant>your room>Google Assistant Settings>Default Media Output> and just choose something quiet.
That only changes the default speaker for music output. It doesn't change the volume of the VA
That's correct, but then you gain the ability to lower the volume on that one specific device which is not a part of Sonos. I chose a Nest Hub as the default media output and turned down the volume on that device. No more screaming.
Please fix this issue! The VA volume is way too loud for my office. Everyone down the hall can hear it.
Our assistant blows us away (our neighbors have complained about that, but not movies and music).
