The 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 Google Home app and tap on the speaker you want to control, 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.
