The Google Nest mini is the next step up from Last years model which has a few improvements over the last gen. Smaller and greener it has a few new features and upped specs and is a nice addition to your home or even an upgrade from last years model.


As we know from the launch the Assistant has been upgraded which also applies to your mobile phone and this is welcome as it has now deeper integration there is some features however which is only available in the US for now and hopefully we will see them this side of the world soon.

There is also now an option to wall mount your nest mini which is a great idea if you need the space but you will still need this to be powered in to work as it has no built in battery as before and perhaps that might be a change come the next model but I think it is fine as is as it just left there and powered off when not in use just like my Alexa products and this is a fear many have with the likes of this tech apparently listening to you all day long, simple way to fix that is when not in use just unplug and get along with it.

If you have another one in your home you can also stream music and connect both together giving you stereo sound in one room or have the same music playing in other rooms in your house which is handy and now there is more bass to the music and sound too which is a great addition and most will appreciate this as many people like bass,the same applies to earphones and so on.

New features also on the Nest mini is capacative buttons which allows you to play and pause and higher and lower the volume, you will see these as seen before under the cloth covering you touch the centre or the sides to adjust so this brings a certain level of interaction with the device unlike the previous model which is nice.
