What is Google Home Mini ? .
Google Home Mini is a forum to voice command connected to the assistant “Ok Google”.
To activate it, simply say “Ok Google” and then continue with a question or an order.
For example, “Ok Google, what time will he be tomorrow ?” or “Ok Google, play my playlist Relaxing on Deezer”.
Google Home Mini is compatible with many apps (Spotify, Netflix, YouTube ..) and media ( Radio France, RTL, France 24 ..).
It is small enough to hold in the hand, and resembles a pebble-fabric covered (there is even a little bit of rubber at its base so that it does not slip out of its socket).
The top of the speaker is touch-sensitive and responds to a few gestures. If you briefly tap the center, it means “Play/Pause”, if you press a bit more extensively, you trigger the command “Ok Google” and then finally you can control the sound by dragging your finger on the outer edge of the object.

Google Home Mini will be released in France on 20 October and will cost 59,99 €.
