    Mini Minimalism

    |
    Posted .

    Google Home Mini is a versatile miniature rendition of Google Home with a smaller, yet surprisingly good sounding speaker. Similar to it's larger sibling, simply call out "OK Google" or "Hey Google" and speak your request. The strong suit, not surprising, for this Google assistant, is to address a question that can be answered by Google search engine. That is where it really shines & blows away it's competition. For this reason I recommend owning at least one of these or one of the full sized Google Home, if you prefer. If you already own a competitive virtual assistant, I recommend you buy this Google Home Mini. Owning both one or more Google Home Mini's and a competitive assistant make perfect sense. Each has a specialty and can do specific tasks better than the other. Owning BOTH offers you the best of both worlds. In addition to voice controls (that I prefer), tap the top to pause or resume music playback, and you can tap and hold to activate the Assistant. To adjust the volume, you tap the sides of the device. Or best yet, simply SPEAK your command! I recommend the Google Home Mini!

    Google Home : More Like HOME RUN

    |
    Posted .

    Purchased one of these for myself because, I mean why not, everyone else was. Got it home and thought "Ughhh how hard is this going to be to setup" So I turned on the shower for it to warm up and in 45 seconds had the thing playing music. Was one of the most simple processes I have ever had to do. Now I use it each morning to "Hello Google, Play Wake UP Music" and it just always picks great jams for my shower in the morning, actually changes how you leave the house looking forward to the day. Ended up purchasing 2 more, one for sister in law and one for parents for xmas gifts. I was a hero.

    Smart Home Essential

    This smart home unit is awesome! I mainly use the google home for light automation as well as music and alarms. My biggest sellng point is how small and discreet it looks. I recently bought the disney otterbox stand for it and now it looks like Mickey Mouse in my house. Absolutely love it!

    Better than Echo Dot!

    I have the Echo Dot, and Alexa is too dumb for me. Simple questions she doesn't know how to help. Google Home Mini impressed me so far. The speaker is more deep and louder the competition.

    This is my second Home mini. Bought another one because my dad wanted mine. The home mini is great for those who love to listen to music all the time. Would definitely recommend and easy to use.

    An amazing addition to your home.

    Posted .

    Hands down one of my favorite purchases this year. I ordered with with intent of having Google Assistant available to answering a few questions or for info on a particular movie, item, ect. Immediately it became 10x more helpful with controlling things in my home, setting my schedule for the days and weeks, playing music while I clean, and so much more. I love it to much I have two. (and considering another one)

    Miles better than the Echo Dot

    |
    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Set up, Sound quality
    Cons mentioned:
    Bass, Limitations

    I was a bit hesitant on picking up another assistance device. I have 2 Echo Dot and was kind of disappointed that it could not go out to the internet and look up answers to my questions. I've done my research on the Home mini and bit the bullet. Got home, set it up and was pretty amazed at how straightforward it is to set up the device. Connect it to your wifi, say "Ok, Google," "Hey Google" a few times and bam! All Done. I also connected my Philips Hue device to the Home app. I'm amazed at how well it picks up sounds. Even in a noisy environment. My Echo Dot couldn't even pick up my voice; even in multiple locations. I put the Mini through my test. Asked it a few questions that the Echo couldn't answer and the Mini didn't break a sweat. The mini answered all my questions. Initially, this is what I was looking for. I'll be replacing my existing solution shortly! The speakers on the Google Home MIni is so much better than the Dot. You can actually play some music with better clarity than the Dot. Bass is lacking but it's doable. I'm very surprised. If you want a Home Assistance device, pick this up over the Echo Dot. It's so much better and you can do so much more than the Echo lineup.

    Love it! It paired seamlessly with my WiFi plugs for my lights. I like that there are options of greeting voices. And I have a Google Play music account and it works wonderfully with playing selections from my music library at my request.

    A cheap way to get started with Google Assistant

    |
    Posted .

    The Mini does pretty much everything that the Google Home does minus expanded bass for playing music. If you're putting these in bedrooms it should suffice. I have basic connectivity with home automation and it's nice to be able to perform actions from a different room. I've had no problem with the Mini hearing me. For some reason when I'm closer to the Google Home the Mini will pick up sometimes. One knock is that it uses Micro USB instead of USB-C. It doesn't bother me that much now since I practically never move it. My frustration is mostly with the Google Assistant. When I try natural queries it doesn't understand what I'm asking. I suspect it'll get better over time. Another minor frustration is tapping the sides to change the volume is awkward. If you use many service in the Google ecosystem get this!

    I have a Amazon Echo and the Echo fit but I saw this on sale so I decided to try it. I’m so happy I did. It works with my roku tv which is awesome because sometimes I lose my remote to it. It makes phone calls and sets timers. It answers the questions that I ask. I’m not sure how music sounds on it because I haven’t tried it yet but I’m considering getting another one of these because I like them so much.

    Smart Home start here

    This is exactly how anyone who wants a smart home should start. When you go off the reviews from youtubers and tech magazines they really try to say how bad is the speaker when that is not the point. I automated the majority of my eletrônica in my house in less then a hour and now I feel like I have a real assistant at home. For $29 now is the best gift for the holidays.

    Excellent product for home automation!

    Posted .

    We got this product for our apartment, and it's been super helpful in providing us with updates on the weather, traffic, news updates, etc. It's also easy to sync with other 'cast/wifi' enabled devices like our Vizio soundbar, Chromecast Ultra, house lights, etc. (IFTTT is super helpful for creating additional 'applets' to supplement the Google Home mini device). A 10/10 buy, and a great christmas gift for friends and family.
