Google Home Mini entered our house just over a month ago and since then, it is like we have another member of the family. 🙂
Our Google Home Mini got seconded into my Little One’s room and it is a perfect place for it. Not only does my Little One use her Google Home Mini a lot, meaning multiple times every single day, but it has saved me from having to be a weather person, an encyclopedia, an alarm clock, and more.
So what is Google Home Mini? It is a smart little speaker that has Google Assistant built in. So whenever you need to know something like say…the weather, want a song played, want to hear a knock-knock joke, need to who the highest paid player in the NHL is, when the Predators play next, set an alarm, have Happy Birthday played because it is your birthday, and so very much more, Google Home Mini is there waiting to assist you.
Setup is simple.
1 Plug the power cable into Google Home Mini
2 Plug the adapter into the wall socket
3 Download and run the Google Home app on a phone or tablet
Google Home Mini has a number of partners that makes a number of things easy and at your fingertips such as…
Music & Audio with:
Google Play Music
We subscribe to Google Play Music so we have all the music we can ever want at all our fingertips. We have the family library so with my one subscription, all my family members can access Google Play Music’s library for unlimited music listening session at any time. With a tween in the house, unlimited music through Google Play Music is a money-saving venture for sure instead of hearing “Mom, can we but *insert artist’s name here* new album?” With one monthly fee very album is at her fingertips.

For kids, Google Home Mini can be a lot of fun, whether they are by themselves and chilling to music or with friends and wanting to play games.
But really, Google Home Mini is for all ages and stages of life.
Google Home Mini also comes in a charcoal, chalk, and the coral that we have. So whether you want your Google Home Mini to blend in or stand out, there is a great color available for your style.
Google Home Mini can also be controlled not only by your voice but the volume can be turned up and down by tapping the left or ride side of the unit. Music can be started or stopped with tapping the left or ride side of the unit as well. You can also mute the mic to Google Home Mini by sliding the switch on the side of the unit.
