How do I turn off the audio in Home app WITHOUT DEACTIVATING AUDIO RECORDING?

Community Member


I use Google Home to view my Google Nest indoor gen 2 feed. How do I completely mute the audio IN THE APP ONLY. I do not want to deactivate audio recording, I do not want to adjust the speaking volume, I do not want to adjust the mic or any hardware. I simply want to fully mute the audio in the app. Right now, I cannot turn the audio all the way off. When I turn the volume down, it stops at the last sliver of volume so that I always hear at least a little sound from the app.

Hi LK18,  I'm an end user like you.  Hmmmm, I have never wanted to do that but I just looked everyone in the app and I do not see a way to do that other than turning down the volume on my phone.  There are many features like that missing at this point.  Hopefully Google  will be enhancing the app soon.
