Google Home Mini successor, launched in India at Rs 4,499

Google Home Mini successor, launched in India at Rs 4,499

Google has announced the launch of a new smart speaker called the Nest mini. It succeeds the Google Home Mini and is available in chalk and Charcoal variants on Flipkart at Rs 4,499. The Google Nest Mini is very similarly built to the original Mini. It has a fabric material on the outside that Google has said is made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. Google has completely re-engineered the Nest Mini with Google Assistant for an enhanced experience. It is said to deliver a twice as strong bass than the original Google Home Mini and has audio tuning software for an elevated audio experience. The smart audio features include ability to operate in noisy environments as the Google Assistant can automatically change the output noise according to the surrounding sounds. There are proximity sensors on the device that light up with LED lights when the user brings his hand near the device. The LED lights help the user see where to tap or adjust volume levels. “Users can connect multiple Google or Nest speakers to build a sound system for their whole home. By simply creating different groups in the Google Home app, users can enjoy music, podcasts and more throughout their home. Additionally, with stream transfer, users can fill their home with sound by moving their music, audiobooks and podcasts from one speaker to another by just using voice,” said Google in a release. “Users even have the option of transferring music or podcasts from the phone to the speaker. For example, If you are hosting a dinner party, once you are done cooking in the kitchen, just say, “Hey Google, move the music to the living room speaker,” to keep the party going,” it added. The feature is expected to be available to Indian users very soon.
