Unlike, say, the Home Max , which Google built to sound great, the Mini’s just supposed to be so small, so cheap, and so simply designed that you’ll put it somewhere and never notice it again.
It only takes about two minutes to get up and running, and setup’s even easier thanks to a recent update to the Google Home app.
Most of what’s great about the Mini holds for all Google Home devices: the Assistant is impressively helpful, and getting better all the time.
Voice Match works well (if not perfectly), and as far as I’m concerned multi-user support should be smart speaker table stakes.
Also, Google needs to figure out how to better arbitrate devices, so I don’t get so many phones and speakers responding every time I ask a question.
