Turn off the Google Assistant on Nest Wifi point

Nest Wifi points have a built-in speaker with the Google Assistant, so you can play music, manage your Wi-Fi network, find answers, control your connected devices, and more using just your voice. 

You can adjust the Nest Wifi point speaker volume and light brightness from your device settings. This is a good option if you want to customize the volume and brightness of the point for your home but still want to use the Assistant.

Adjust the volume

Turn up the volume 
  • Tap on the right side of Nest Wifi point.
