Google Home App Restores Speaker Volume Control

After being removed due to the Sonos lawsuit in late 2021 and early 2022, the Google Home app has regained the ability to control the volume of multiple speakers or devices at once.

In the past few years, you had to adjust the volume for each speaker individually, which was somewhat inconvenient.

Now, all you need to do is:

  • Open the app.
  • Start a playback session.
  • Tap on the mini-player.
  • Press the output selector to dynamically add/remove speakers or choose from one of the preset speaker groups.
  • Control the volume for the selected devices at once.

The functionality of voice commands with the assistant has also been restored, allowing you to say, “Hey, Google, set the volume to 40%” to control the volume for the entire speaker group.

Looking ahead, Google will allow you to access group volume control from the Android lock screen and through smart displays like the Nest Hub.

It appears that the first release will launch with Android 15, and it is already available in beta on Pixel devices.
