Not only cute, but also intelligent.
One of the most common smart assistants is the Google Home Mini. Because of its small size, elegant style, and wide range of features, it appeals to a wide range of people. Especially if they don’t want the Google Home’s air freshener design on show.
The number of functions available on the Google Home Mini is another explanation for its popularity. The Google Home Mini—or Nest Mini, if you have the most recent version—can do much more than its simple smart assistant features (that is, answering questions, playing music, and controlling smart home devices).
Here are some of the best Google Home Mini features you’ll love.
Google will track down your phone.
How much do you misplace your phone during the day? It can be as easy as the gadget slipping between the couch cushions, but it can also be as complicated as setting it down and forgetting where you put it. It can happen to anyone.
The good news is that Google will automatically ring your phone. Simply enter your phone number into your Google account and then ask, “Hey Google, find my phone.” This feature works on both Android and iPhones, so you won’t have to bother your spouse with a phone call.
Google is capable of carrying out daily tasks.
The ability to automate many mundane activities is one of the main advantages of owning a smart home. It might not seem like a big deal, but turning off every light (or even asking Google to do it for you) takes a long time.
You can build routines with Google Home Mini that will start when you say a specific word. For instance, you can say, “Hey Google, good morning,” and the system will switch on lights throughout the house, start brewing your coffee, and begin playing your morning playlist.
Custom phrases can be created for custom routines. anything along those lines,“Hey Google, game time,” for example, could dim the lights, switch on a connected sound bar, and turn on your Xbox for a fun night of gaming.
Google has the ability to broadcast to all devices.
How many times have you wanted to gather your whole family but couldn’t find a simple way to do so without shouting at everyone? One Google Home Mini feature is the ability to broadcast to all devices at once if you have more than one Google Home Mini in your home.
You can say things like, “Hey Google, broadcast the dinner is ready.” Each device will ring a dinner bell after you issue the command. And if you are not at home, you can use it as an intercom.
If you tell Google Assistant on your phone that you want to broadcast that you’re on your way home, the message will be sent to all of the devices in your house.
Google can be used as a white noise generator.
Many people find it difficult to fall asleep without some kind of background noise, such as a TV, a ceiling fan, or a white noise machine. Your Google Home Mini will assist you if you fall into one of these categories. You can ask Google to play a number of different sounds, and the computer will do so.
White noise isn’t the only type of sound available. You may request unique tracks, such as rain or forest sounds, for example. Whatever kind of ambient noise makes you sleep the best, there’s a good chance Google will play it.
Google has the ability to function as a phone.
Google Home Mini has hands-free capability if your contacts are connected to your Google account. It’s straightforward. Simply say, “Hey Google, call mom,” and the system will dial your mother’s phone number.
Best of all, Google’s Voice Recognition feature allows it to identify daily users’ voices. Since everybody has the word “mom” in their phone, Google can tell who is speaking to it and dial the appropriate “mom” depending on who is speaking.
Google has the potential to become a personal assistant.
When you put something down, how much do you say to yourself, “I’m going to forget where that is?” Rather than troubling yourself to remember where you must have kept it, simply tell Google. Google would remember if you say, “Hey Google, my spare key is in my desk drawer.”
When you’re looking for your key and can’t seem to find it, simply ask Google where it is and it will tell you where you last put it.
Google Can Adjust The TV Volume
Misplaced the remote? No worries—just ask Google to turn the TV on, to stream your favourite show, or to adjust the volume. By having a Chromecast plugged-in, your Google Home Mini can act as a remote.
If your streaming services are linked to your Chromecast or Goodle Account, specific episodes can be easily streamed, skip over those you don’t like, and much more with just your voice alone.
The Google Home Mini is worthy of its price. Most people consider it as subpar because it is a previous model than the Nest Mini, but there are no worthwhile differences between the two devices.
If you’re in look for a handy yet affordable and smart assistant to use around the home (or even to serve as a Bluetooth speaker in an office), try and pick up a Google Home Mini. You won’t be disappointed.
