The $49 Home Mini is Google's answer to the Amazon Echo Dot

Introduced by Google Glass desinger Isabelle Olson, the Home Mini is created to integrate itself into your home decor and seamlessly operate without drawing attention to itself. This service will be extended to UK.

Google during its "Made for Google" announced a plethora of products including the latest Google Home Mini and Google Home Max along with a new pair of wireless headsets known as Pixel Ear Buds. It will be offered in a choice of three color options which include charcoal, chalk, as well as a Coral color variant. However, Home Mini has a distinct advantage over Amazon's device: voice control. Like Google Home, to interact with the Mini, just say, "Okay, Google". It has four L.E.D light. If you are making food for example, and the kitchen becomes noisy, it will dynamically increase or decrease the volume to compensate for the noise. It will retail for $49. It will retail for $49 with online pre-orders starting today and U.S. in-store availability on October 19.

Since its tiny, we don't think it will sound as good as the larger Google Home. "With Google Chromecast, Nest and Google Home things will become easier".

The Pixel Buds can be also used to translate between languages in real time with the help of Google Translate. Kids' speech syntax has been taken specially into account.

This device, as the name suggests, is a smaller version of the company's existing Google Home unit.

Google is also more closely integrating Google Home with Nest's products. It will depend on different measurements that may be set by the user or the ambient sound in the room or surrounding. It supports cast, Bluetooth, and auxiliary input so you're able to use just about any source for audio.

The Google Home Mini, similar to the original version, is operated by Google Assistant.

The Google Assitant, along with all voice-based commands, comes in as a standard and users can also use two of these with devices for a better stereo sound experience.

First of all, the speaker is blanketed by a piece of fabric, which houses two 4.5-inch woofers. The company is also working on improved voice recognition.
