What Is It? Google Home Mini is the newest device to the Google Home product line. It provides hands-free help around the house. Mini is powered by the Google Assistant. So whenever you need help, it’s by your side. You can get answers from Google such as weather, your calendar information for the day or week, even news and finance information for the day. It can tell the difference by different voices. The Mini works with Chromecast, so you can stream shows, movies and music to your TV or speakers.
I recently bough the new Google Home Mini. It is a smaller version of the Google Home. These devices provide an affordable way to get into home automation and provide a stereo throughout your home. You are able to provide a Google Home Mini in the kitchen, extra bedrooms, office, living room, and even the garage. It is little but don’t be put off by the size. The sound of the home mini is pretty good, in fact I have only been able to get it to 2 dots worth of volume and most of the times it is around the one dot mark. It is great if your household has Google products either phones or computers.
The Mini works well with Google Music, Spottily, Pandora, and YouTube Red Music. It works so well with Google Music my wife said she doesn’t want to give Google Music up after the trial, so that is a big win. You can also control video applications such as YouTube and NetFlix with your voice. It is easy to set-up the applications through your phone and connect it to the Google Home application.
You can ask Google Home Mini questions, and it will use the power of magic and the brains of Google to give you the information that you requested. Here are some questions to ask?
- What does the Fox say?
- What is the Square Root of 583?
- How do you make spaghetti?
- Who played in the movie about the boxer from Philadelphia?
- What is the Worse Movie?
- Tell me a joke.
- Do you know Sieri?
Those are a few fun questions. I give the Google Home Mini 5 Stars. To find out more information please go to the Google Store. It came quickly when I ordered it.
