Google have announced that everyone's favorite assistant is back, in a new slimmed-down miniature version. The Google Home Mini is everything you've came to love from the Google Home range only in a smaller, more versatile miniature smart speaker. Featuring a 360 degree speaker with 40mm drivers, the physical size of the Google Home Mini is about the size of a mini-donut at 3.86inch diameter and 1.65inch in height.




A direct competitor to Amazon's Echo Dot, both smart speakers are very similar with Google Home Mini utilizing Google Assistant. Featuring Bluetooth, touch controls for volume and a physical switch for muting voice commands, Google have provided 3 colors to suit your preference- Chalk, Charcoal and Coral and is finished in a soft-touch mesh material.


Google Home Mini grants you can control of your Chromecast streaming devices, access to Google Play Music, and YouTube. Unfortuntly, Google haven't included an audio output jack, this means you cannot use your Google Home Mini as an audio source for your home theatre setup or as media streaming center.


Available for pre-order now for $49, the Google Home Mini provides exceptional value in the booming smart speaker market and will ship October 18.
