    The near field recognition is not as good as amazon and tapping the sides for volume control is cumbersome

    Hey Google works great, and control of google home equipped devices is nice, I use it with a chrome cast to turn on and off my TV. The speaker design ifself is poorly conceived... the volume controls are on the sides and invisible, you have to touch the speaker in a certain area to control it, which is not intuitive.

    Great add on for your Google Assistant home. Only thing I dislike are the volume controls being touch. Hard to move the device without turning it up or down.

    The 29.99 google assistant has very limited capacity to answer questions and no volume control. Its more of a gadget than a real assistant.

    I like both Google Home and the Amazon Echo dot, but the sound quality on the Google Home Mini is hands down better than on the Dot. The style is also better. The only complaint is the touch volume controls are poorly executed, but no matter you can just say "volume level X" .

    I recently got into the Google ecosystem. The mini has been a great help with lighting, weather, scheduling, alarms, music, etc. Overall it's a neat little device. The only complaint I have comes from volume control when you have multiple speakers connected. It works, it's just a little finicky at times. This is likely to be improved with updates.

    My husband chose this when we were adding things to the cart to get 1 year financing lol. But it works great! I love being able to play music by just telling it to. It can also play games with you and answer questions, do math problems for you quickly, tell you word definitions, play playlists on spotify... Only thing I dont like is the volume control. . it is never accurate or to your liking when you ask it to turn it up or down a lot or a little. But still, a great product and fun to have.
