How to Adjust Bass and Treble on Google Home Mini

The Google Home suite of smart speakers, including the Google Home Mini, now feature basic equalization controls (bass and treble), which you can adjust on a per speaker basis via today’s Google Home app.  You may set these controls as follows.





How to Adjust Bass and Treble on Google Home Mini

1. Bring up the Google Home App

Firstly, install this app on your mobile device if not already there. Then, run it.  

You then get its Home screen as shown next.  We’re running this demo on the iOS platform.

Thirdly, you then get a list of registered Google Home devices on the same network as the tablet / phone you’re running the Google Home app on.  E.g. We’re showing our devices list in the next picture.





4. Find the Google Mini Speaker you’re Adjusting in the Devices List 

We did with our Mini speaker, as seen in the next picture.

The control options screen then appears, as shown next.

8. Adjust the Bass and Treble Levels on this Screen

That is, drag the corresponding slider left (decreasing volume) or right (increasing volume).  Tap and hold immediately over the blue dot of the control you want to change.  Then, while maintaining contact with the screen surface with your finger, slide that finger left or right to adjust.

Furthermore, changes in the audio output of the Mini speaker should be nearly instantaneous.  If you don’t hear changing bass and treble sound characteristics, you may have chosen the wrong speaker from the devices list.





9, Done with How to Adjust Bass and Treble on the Google Home Mini  !

Lastly, there are no Submit buttons to press after you make your adjustments to these controls.  In fact, changes to them take immediate effect, and will remain in effect until the next time you move the bass and treble level sliders. Thus, they stay in effect even once you close the Google Home app.
