The Google Home Mini is a smaller version of the Google Home smart speaker. It's powered by Google Assistant, and has a decorative fabric covering that comes in three different colors so that it won't look out of place in the home.
Google Assistant excels at answering any of the random questions you might have for it. It can give you the latest weather, traffic, finance, sports, and more. It can recognize your voice and integrate with your calendars, reminders, and other personalized information. You can also use it to make and receive phone calls.
