Phonedog

Absolutely worth it

from Phonedog

While it features a mediocre speaker, the main reason you should consider buying one is for the Google Assistant. The Assistant can play music, cast entertainment to you TV, answer questions, and more, and since it works via the cloud, its functionality is always expanding.

Know Your Mobile

An ideal option for the AI-curious

from Know Your Mobile

For the price, it’s pretty much impossible not to like the Google Home Mini. It’s a smart piece of technology that delivers tons of value. If you’re interested in dipping your toe in the pool that is AI, this is probably the best place to start.

The point of Google Home Mini is to have Google Assistant at your beck and call. It’s great for getting the news, short bursts of music, the weather and other tidbits of information when your hands are busy (like setting a timer). I found myself using it more often than Siri (who actually uses Siri?) in the office, despite always having my iPhone and Apple Watch with me.

Great voice-assistant, not-so-great speaker

from Pocket-lint

Home Mini isn't designed as a speaker for music, though. Sure, it has a speaker, and can connect to music services, but it doesn't sound that great. But then it's not supposed to: Mini is all about voice-control and expanding the system around your home. And on that front, it achieves exactly what it sets out to do.

The Guardian

A brilliant little voice assistant speaker

from The Guardian

The Google Home Mini is all the functionality of a full-sized Google Home shrunk into a small fabric-covered pin cushion. It doesn’t sound as good, and isn’t as loud, as the bigger Home, but sounds better and is louder than Amazon’s Echo Dot.

Pint-sized voice control

A smaller footprint and a cheaper entry point

We're clearly big fans of the Google Assistant, and any device that makes it more accessible to the masses is well worth a second look in our book. If budget was no option then the standard Google Home offers significantly better audio quality, but for most people budget will unfortunately come into play should they wish to set up speakers in every room of the house.

Finally, Google takes the fight to Amazon

from Alphr

The Google Home Mini would be a nailed-on five-star product if Google had only spent a couple of quid putting in a 3.5mm headphone jack in every unit. But even if that is the case, seeing its big Seattle rival packing a headphone jack in should have been enough incentive to compete, even if Google didn’t think anyone would use it.

G Style Magazine

Echo Dot has some competition

from G Style Magazine

It was smart of Google to add the Mini to its catalog of smart speakers as it goes after the Echo Dot crowd and hits that sweet price point of $49.99. It will easily be a stocking stuffer this year just like the Chromecast in the past. You aren’t getting superb audio but at this price you can only expect so much.
