Why can we no longer control the volume with.... The Volume button?!

Hi, I have a Pixel 5, 2 Home minis and a Nest Audio. 

Updating the volume when I am casting from my pixel to my "home" group is incredibly frustrating.

Previously I was able to use the volume button on the phone that I'm casting from. Now I have to open up the home app every time I want to change the volume. Physically (and inconveniently) walking up to the speaker only changes the volume of that speaker, not the whole group.

Why now does the volume button change the volume on the phone, when all the audio is being cast to the speakers anyway? Even when the phone rings, it rings through the speakers. It's so frustrating and pointless.

Effectively the change has made the phone's physical volume buttons redundant whenever I'm casting audio from it.
