The Google Home now has a few companions, The Google Home Max and the Google Home Mini, but in this post, we will be focusing on the Mini. This product is clearly the competitor to Amazon’s Echo Dot. The size of the Mini makes the Google Assistant more accessible by being more compact and more importantly less expensive. It is designed to fit naturally in any room. It’s sleek and smooth, with no corners or edges, and about the size of a donut. Its fabric enclosure is durable, yet transparent enough to let through both light and sound. The LEDs under the fabric light up to show you when your Assistant hears you. And it projects 360-degree sound providing great sound quality in such a small package. With far-field microphones, the Mini can hear you even when there’s music playing or there’s another noise in the background. Mini comes in three colors—Chalk, Charcoal, and Coral. At $49, Google Home Mini works on its own or you can have a few around the house, giving you the power of Google anywhere in your home.
