It could be a bit of a chore to try controlling your Google Home and you sometimes would rather not have to say anything to the device.

Sometimes it just might be that the speakers are too far and so on. There are ways to do what you want without having to scream at a speaker.

Below are a few ways to control the personal assistant without saying anything.

Taps and Swipes- Along with your Google Home device comes a few cheat sheets, detailing various aspects of using the shiny device. Here's are a few things you could do: Tap the top of Home to play or pause music or videos playing on a nearby TV through Chromecast.

Long-press until the Assistant's lights start blinking, awaiting your command.
Drawing a circle in a clockwise motion increases volume.
Drawing a circle in counter-clockwise motion decreases volume.
Adjust volume from your phone

Google Home works just as any other Chromecast device when streaming content from your phone or tablet, so you can adjust the volume without touching Home or using a voice command.

To do so, open the Home app and navigate to the Devices section. Tap on the speaker icon for Home, then adjust the volume as you see fit. 

Alternatively, if you're casting music from an app on your phone or tablet you can use the volume slider in said app or the physical volume buttons on your device to adjust playback levels.
