Last week, Sonos won the lawsuit against Google over a patent that our favorite operating system company, the phrase says, was infringing on its products, and over the past few days that has resulted in you can no longer control the volume of a group of speakers.
The ecosystem Google home lost one of its most important features, which caused complaints from many users, and waiting for Google to bring back global volume control for all speakers we have to settle for your current alternative
This is how you now control the volume of a group of speakers
The phrase only hit groups of speakers, with the characteristic that a series of speakers are grouped together so that the same music is heard throughout the house or in selected rooms. Phrasing does not affect the “pair of speakers” function which turns two speakers into a single stereo speaker.
From now on, for the group of speakers, we cannot control the volume of all its speakers at once neither from Google Home, nor from the Google Assistant, nor from the volume controls of our device. Google has started disabling this feature in its products.
Now, if we are listening to music in a group of speakers and we want to adjust the volume of each of the speakers, we no longer need to go to the ‘Groups’ section, because clicking on this virtual device, the volume control will no longer appear. Now press the button ‘Multimedia’ the notification “Shared Commands” to adjust the volume.
There we will see how it appears under the playback controls a list of volume controls for all speakers
Google has promised that in the future they will offer global volume control for speakers, TVs and smart displays compatible with Google Home, but they were unable to specify a date. Hopefully it won’t take long, as this feature is basic for speaker groups.
