Google’s line-up of smart speakers has trebled and now offers small, medium and large options. We’ve been hands-on with the baby of the bunch, the Google Home Mini…
The Google Home Mini is basically Google’s spin on an Amazon Echo Dot. It’s a dinky device that comes with Google Assistant and can be used purely as a wireless speaker or as a smart hub through which you can control other Google Home or Chromecast-enabled speakers around your house. At £49, it’s a whole 99 pence cheaper than the Amazon equivalent.
Design and build
The Google Home Mini is a circular, puck-like design with a rounded top and sides. Google has designed a brand new fabric just for this speaker. Why? Because it needs to be transparent enough for light and sound to pass through and you need to be able to control the speaker through it too.
The Mini is available in three different finishes: Chalk and Charcoal are quite plain, while Coral gives the speaker a splash of colour.
