Google Home: how to activate night mode to make the speaker quieter?

Google Home has a night mode designed to make the speaker more discreet and silent when you want to sleep. The option will automatically lower the volume of the voice assistant, reduce the brightness of the screen or LED lights, and disable any notifications. Best of all, you can even automatically schedule the activation of the mode in the Google Home app.
