How to Change the Voice Volume on a Google Home Device

Depending on your preferences and proximity, you can change the volume using your voice, within the Google Home app, or by touching the device.

The voice commands for volume are the same for all Google Nest (Google Home) devices. If you want to control volume by touch, the instructions vary depending on the device you have.

How to Change Google Home Mini Voice Volume

There are three ways for adjusting the voice volume on your Google Home Mini: by issuing a voice command, using the Google Home app, or touching the device.

If you want to use your voice to adjust the volume, you can use one of the commands below:

  • “Turn it up/down.”
  • “Volume level x.”
  • “Volume to x%.”
  • “Max/minimum volume.”
  • “Increase/decrease volume.”

For checking the volume, say “What’s the volume?”

To use the Google Home app to customize the volume, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Google Home app.
  2. Select Google Home Mini.
  3. Change the volume.

The third method is to control the volume by touching the device. Here are the instructions:

  • To increase the volume, tap on the right side of your device. If you want maximum volume, tap 10 times.
  • To decrease the volume, tap on the left side of your device. Tap 10 times if you want to mute it.

It’s important to note that these settings only affect your media and Google Assistant. For example, if you’ve muted the device, you’ve actually muted the media. Google Assistant will speak at a minimum level, while there will be no changes to the alarms and timers you’ve set.

Available Voices in Google Home

In most cases, Google Home offers 10 voices in the default package. The availability of voices depends on the language you’ve set.

The voices range in depth, intonation, and pitch, allowing you to find the one you enjoy.

Additional FAQs

Why Can’t I Change My Google Home Voice?

You can’t change your Google Home voice if your phone’s language doesn’t support it. To see the available options, you need to have English (United States) as your system’s default language.

If you don’t want to switch your phone’s language, there isn’t anything else you can do because, for now, Google hasn’t released any updates regarding other languages.

Apart from language incompatibility, the problem may be within the app. Try waiting and then restarting the app or reinstalling it.

J. A. R. V. I. S. is Tony Stark’s (Iron Man’s) assistant in the Marvel comic book and movie franchise. It’s short for “Just a Rather Very Intelligent System.” Hence, it’s no wonder many users ask whether it’s possible to change their Google Voice to Jarvis. Unfortunately, we have to let you down because, for now, Google doesn’t offer this option.
