To recall, Google introduced the Home and Home Mini speaker in India in April this year. Google Home is essentially a 6-inch x 4-inch speaker which is always listening to your voice. Apart from playing music from your smartphone or from any other device, Google can perform a bunch of other functions. The speakers have a 2-inch driver and dual 2-inch passive radiators on the sides. On top, there is a capacitive touch panel for controls and four LED’s which shows Google’s colourful language.
The touch panel can be used to adjust volume, pause or play audio, can take calls etc. It also sports two microphones on top which are always on unless you press the mute button on the side which disables the mics.
Coming to Google Home Mini, the smart speaker comes with fabric that is durable, yet transparent enough to let through both light and sound. There is an LED under the fabric, which notifies a user when the Google Assistant is hearing. The smart speaker comes with a compact design and delivers a 360-degree sound. The device comes in three colour options including Chalk, Charcoal, and Coral and it can be connected to other Google Home devices.
