Google Nest Mini review: Mini update, max impact


With a new name - it's Nest rather than Home - this 'mini' entry point to the smart home speaker maximises the sound quality compared to before.

Improved sound quality ; More sustainable build ; Built-in wall-mount ; Power of Google Assistant ; Physical microphone mute button ; Improved on-device controls

No audio jack ; No clock like new Echo Dot ; Not really an upgrade if you own Google Home Mini

The Google Nest Mini remains a smart and enticing entry-point to Google Assistant in the home, with this update bringing the improvements where they matter the most.

Google Nest Mini


The Google Nest Mini doesn't re-invent the wheel - and leaves the original Home Mini design almost untouched - but upgraded audio makes this the new best Google Assistant speaker around.

Google Nest Mini review


A modest update to Google's cheapest rebranded smart speaker

Great price ; Improved speakers and mics ; Wall mount is handy ; Google Assistant is always learning ; Voice Match allows for personalised answers

Better Google Home only £40 more ; Not loud enough for music at a party ; Machine learning is US-only for now

With improved sound, touch controls and a wall mount, the Google Nest Mini is louder and cleverer than ever and will only improve over time

Google Nest Mini review: A mild makeover for Google's smallest smart speaker


Google's smallest smart speaker gets a performance and sound quality boost

Cleverer than an Echo ; Improved sound and performance ; Reasonably priced

Doesn't sound as good as an Echo Dot 3rd gen ; No 3.5mm audio output

The new Nest Mini is a welcome upgrade then and an interesting one, too. The extra silicon inside will likely mean it’s better equipped for future Google Assistant upgrades and it now sounds better, detects your voice more reliably and with greater...

Google Mini


Google brings all the searching power of its Web based search engine to your office network with the Google Mini.

Sophisticated searching

Quite complex

The mini is a slim, server-size appliance that brings the speed and relevance of Google's search engine to your company's network.

Google Nest Mini


The Google Nest Mini is the most affordable Google Assistant smart speaker you can buy, but it offers virtually no improvements over the previous model.

Affordable. Small. Good high-frequency response.

No significant changes over Google Home Mini. Weak bass and midrange.

Bottom Line: The Google Nest Mini is the most affordable Google Assistant smart speaker you can buy, but it offers virtually no improvements over the previous model.

Google Nest Mini review: Modest improvements make Google’s smallest smart speaker even better


Expect (slightly) more bass, a mounting hole, and refined controls, all for the same price as the older Home Mini.

Improved sound quality ; Google Assistant rarely gets stumped ; Works great with other Nest devices ; Inexpensive

Capacitive buttons are easy to miss ; Sound quality still isn’t that great ; No cable management to go with the new mounting hole ; No analog audio output

Just like its predecessor, the Google Nest Mini smart speaker is capable, easy to use, and whip-smart thanks to Google Assistant. Its improvements over the Home Mini are small yet notable, including slightly better sound, a mounting hole, and refined...

Google Nest Mini Review


This year's Made by Google event came chock-full of new product announcements, including the unveiling of the new, second-gen Nest Mini. The smart speaker replaces the Google Home Mini from 2017, which received much love as an easy entry into Google's...

Improved audio; Still great design and value; Faster Google Assistant with local processing; Better mic setup

No significant new features; Limited connectivity options

Google Nest Mini Review


Google's new Nest Mini smart speaker is priced at Rs. 4,499 in India

Wall mountable ; Louder than the Google Home Mini ; Good voice recognition

Average audio quality ; Sounds shrill at high volumes

The Google Nest Mini is priced at Rs. 4,499 in India, and is a mild upgrade over the Google Home Mini in terms of audio quality and voice recognition. Google has made wall mounting possible, which is the biggest physical change.
