Google Home Mini

The Google Home Mini is arguably the best smart voice assistant on the market and it packs it into a tiny, attractive form factor that you won’t be ashamed to put in your living room. This is likely your best option for a cross platform voice assistant on the market, especially if you are already using Google services.

Description

Why we like the Google Home Mini

Everything the bigger Google Home brags comes with the Google Home Mini, just in a smaller form factor. The puck shaped, fabric-covered speaker has an understated design that is perfect for modern homes. Other than the slightly thin sounds for music, the Google Home Mini performs just as well as its bigger cousin, so it opens up the possibility to buy several cheaper Google Home Mini’s for different rooms in your smart home.

Voice Assistant Compatibility

Google Mini leverages Google’s excellent audio assistant technology to provide a means to ask basic questions and get answers, but more importantly, control your smart home. If you’re heavily invested in Apple or Amazon products, look elsewhere, but for everyone else, Google Home is one of the best options around for voice assistants.

Other Compatibility

Google Home’s ecosystem is quickly becoming one of the most supported standards in the world. You have full IFTTT and Stringify support as well as deep integration into the Nest system. The other big advantage of the Googe Home Mini is that it works seemlessly with Google’s Chromecast platform.

Extra features

Probably the biggest feature that Google Home has that other assistants don’t have is access to Google’s ridiculously good knowledge graph. This means that you can speak to the speaker in a very natural way and still get a good response. Natural language is the name of the game here. And the Chromecast support is another big plus.

Conclusion

Google Home Mini brings everything that was awesome with the Google Home to a smaller and more house-friendly form factor. Unless you are very deep in Amazon or Apple, this is the voice assistant for your new smart home.

    Great product. This device is very smart – it gives accurate and concise answers much more frequently than Siri, which we’ve used for some time. We have three of them in different parts of the house.

    It has a broadcast feature that we use to let everyone know dinner is ready, etc. It can make phone calls, play our music, and control various devices. It has a todo list, hooks up to Pandora, translates words (the kids take Spanish in school). We use timers to enforce sharing of our Nintendo between the kids. We also use alarms. The kids played some games with it and used it to “call Santa”. Fun stuff.

    I’m looking forward to using it for light bulbs and hooking it up to Chromecast. This was one of the best things we bought during the holidays. We bought several for $29 and gave them to relatives. Everyone was really happy to get one.

    The volume can be high for a small device. We find we have to turn it down (“Hey Google, turn the volume down 50%).

    Fun home item. Fun little gadget. Great to turn on my sylvania smart lights tell me the time, and play music. My son likes to yell “hey google!” all the time now. Sounds pretty good for a little speaker for some quite music in the background. It took me a little while to get all the apps settled and get everything connected. I will probably get another one or two for the basement and bedroom. My current one lives in the kitchen. I do wish you could give it another wake up word other than hey or ok google. I think it would be a great idea to let you pick your own name, or give a list of possible names if it needs certain syllables to be effectively recognized. It would also be great if it would play an exact song you ask for from youtube with out paying for youtube red. Looking forward to all the cool google things to come. I chose google over Alexa and Cortana due to its ability to control a more affordable group of items and working with existing items that I had. Wish the windows phone was more compatible, I love the windows phone, but may go back to android due to compatibility.

    Mini is great. $25 Google Express falls short. I got this to take advantage of the $25 “rebate” offer. This review is about the offer and not the mini itself.

    You won’t be able to gift this and get the $25 rebate. Well you can, but you have to open it up and register it to yourself. Not a big deal since you can factory reset it, except you have to RIP the package to open it.

    The rebate is for WALMART on Google Express. Which is not the same thing as Walmart.com It has a very limited catalog. So far everything I’ve tried to search for on Google Express and Walmart I can’t find. It’s very frustrating.

    I’m not sure what the point is with Google Express, they must make money on it somehow. I wouldn’t use it to shop with if not for this rebate.

    I hope I can find something I want to use the $25 with. This is disappointing. I will return the second one I bought and haven’t opened yet, This just isn’t the DEAL you think it is.

    BUYER BEWARE!

    Great-Fun-Info for Coupon Offer. I received this item rather quickly, within two or three days. Set up is very easy and rather quick. You can add your favorite free or paid music such as the google music or spotify or something else. Even if you don’t use any additional settings or apps, it is still very useful. I can ask it to wake me up at a specific time, tell me the weather for today or the week, tell me the latest news, relay a recipe, and a ton of other stuff. It has volume control by simply tapping one side or the other and it will go very loud for music and more. I noticed a negative review about the $25 coupon offering and by the way, I have already spent mine. You won’t see the coupon inside the box, it is not a physical coupon. After you have set up your Google Home Mini, it will ask you to add your Walmart info to Google Express. That is how you get the $25 discount. After you enter a yes it will send by email to let you know all you need to do, is go through Google Express to place your Walmart order. It’s kind of like a frame of Walmart within Google Express. Very nice layout. You can then shop at Walmart online through Google Express. It applies the $25 to the order. I was like WOW what a DEAL. In essence it was like purchasing this item for $4. If you need help with that, you can contact Google Express and they will help you.

    Google Home Mini….. Home Run! So I own the different types of Google, Amazon, Insignia and other Voice Activated Speaker/Assistants and I have to say I enjoy the Google Home Mini the Most. Allowing me access to my Music on Spotify and having the accessibility of Google in such a small, powerful package is one of the nicest features. Compared to the Echo Dot where the speaker faces downward, the Google Home Mini fills the room with music and just sounds better when responding and playing. Having the ability to set it to specific profile and voice commands is the nicest feature so i don’t call my girlfriends dad on accident. Some complain about not having a speaker port, but there lies the reason I bought this… to stand alone. Otherwise I would have just bought another product so it’s inconsequential.
