Say hello to a Home Mini, Google’s $49 answer to a Amazon Echo Dot


To a warn of no one, Google now announced a smaller chronicle of a Google Home intelligent speaker. The Google Home Mini looks like a tiny hockey puck and will sell for $50. At this distance and price, we can’t pattern good audio quality, yet in lapse we get entrance to all a knowledge of a Google Assistant in a tiny package that weighs reduction than a bruise and doesn’t mangle a bank.

The Mini will be accessible for preorder now and start shipping Oct 19.

The new Google Home mini will come in 3 colors (chalk, black and red) and won’t underline a touch-sensitive tip of a unchanging Google Home. Instead, it’ll usually underline a few lights on tip and a microphone switch on a behind (as good as a micro-usb block for powering it).

Another underline here is that there’s fabric on tip of a Mini to make certain it fits into your vital room (or any other room in your house).
