India Today

Louder and clearer

from India Today

The Nest Mini features a simplistic design that blends in your homes with ease. It is loud and the sound remains clear even as you inch towards the higher volume levels.

If you’re tied into the Google ecosystem, a Nest Mini brings improved sound and a bit more bass compared to the original Home Mini. Despite being so small, it makes for a great intercom as well. Google Assistant is by far the best virtual assistant out there, far more knowledgeable and capable than Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa, and is a must-have for anyone with a Nest Hello Video doorbell.

The perfect, low-cost way to add OK Google

from Gadget Guy

The changes are all good, and it is a worthy successor to the Home Mini. It still is a long way from being a music speaker, BUT YOU DON’T BUY IT FOR THAT. You buy it for OK Google.

Upgraded audio makes this the new best Google Assistant speaker around

from Tech Advisor

The Nest Mini is far from an overhaul of the Home Mini. If your house is already kitted out with the originals there’s no real reason to swap them out for the newer model. But for anyone looking to add Google to more rooms, or get the Google Assistant for the first time, the Nest Mini is the new best, and cheapest, way to do it.

One of the nice things about Google's smart home devices is that they last. If you already own a Google Home Mini, there's nothing here that screams "upgrade now."

One of the nice things about Google's smart home devices is that they last. If you already own a Google Home Mini, there's nothing here that screams "upgrade now." Yes, the sound is better, but if you want to upgrade your sound, you're better off making a more substantial investment in a quality smart speaker like a JBL Link 20 or Sonos One. Google updates its voice assistant across all devices, so the old Home Mini should continue to operate (and improve) well into the future. And when the next Nest Mini arrives in a year or two, this one will probably continue working, too.

The question of whether or not it is worth buying one of these is a difficult one for me to answer. If you already own a Google Home Mini, you could get (slightly) better sound, on-device AI for Google Assistant and the ability to hang your speaker on a wall by upgrading. However, I personally don't use my Google Home Mini for listening to music. It's just too small and any real music lover is going to have higher standards than this for consuming their favorite sounds.

If you're looking for your first smart speaker, this is easily the best currently available in terms of value, features, and design. However, with no major hardware changes, the only reason to upgrade your existing Google Mini to a Nest Mini is those under the hood improvements. If faster smart home responsiveness and much better sound, plus new features such as touch controls and stereo pairing are important to you, then you have our blessing.
