One year after unveiling the Google Home, the house of Android is making its younger brother/sister official. Formally introducing the Google Home Mini. Made to offer some of the Google Home features at a fraction of the cost & size.
It’s made mostly from fabric to be soft & durable w/ 4 LED lights to show off it thinking or listening. It has 360-degree sound and can be connected to any Chromecast-connected speaker. Good news is that if you already have a Google Home, you can pick one up and add Google Assistant to other parts of your home. Google already updated the Google Home app to show off a new UI & to add Night Mode to adapt to those in your home that may go to sleep ahead of others.
Not bad for $49, right? It comes in 3 colors of Chalk, Charcoal, & Coral. Pre-orders kicking off right now and expect promos to get one for free when grabbing a Pixel 2. So who’s picking one up?
