Google Nest Mini vs. Google Home Mini: what’s their difference and how to choose?

By  Goraud Mazanec 2019-10-17 2707 0

The new smart speaker Google Nest Mini has been released, a successor model that comes to replace Google Home Mini, an accessory that has given good results to the company Mountain View. We show the most important differences between the two models that, of course, both include voice assistant and, therefore, are simple to use.

Google Nest Mini vs. Google Home Mini 

Essential differences between Google Nest Mini and Home Mini

One of the most important, although it may not seem so at first, is that the new Google Nest Mini smart speaker includes an AI chip that is capable of learning from the user's habits (Machine Learning). With this, what is achieved is that there is a list of options of habitual use stored in the device itself and, therefore, it is not necessary to access Google's servers to execute them. In this way, the Smart TV, for example, can be turned on faster and, of course, more privacy.

Improved sound and power 

Not much data has been given by Google for the first of the two options, but it has made one thing clear: the new smart speaker offers more power and, in addition, more defined bass with an improvement of up to 40%. So the sound experience is better.

Google Nest Mini vs. Google Home Mini 

It's also possible to pair two Google Nest Mini to make the sound stereo, so it doesn't stay in the dual mode offered by the previous generation. More channels, more fun.

Return of touch control and design improvements

Something that was not properly said in the presentation of the new accessories is that the capacitive touch control that was disabled in the Home Mini to control the reproductions, is back. In this way with touch in the upper fabric area of the new model, you can pause or resume a music playback. Very useful and hopefully the problems of the previous generation no longer exist.

As far as the design is concerned, apart from the use of recyclable plastic in the manufacture of the new Google Nest Mini (at least 35%), this intelligent loudspeaker includes an element in its lower area that allows it to hang on the wall. This avoids having to buy accessories for it and is also ideal for places such as the kitchen.

Better voice recognition on Google Nest Mini

Last but not least, the new model that was announced yesterday includes one more microphone, so now in this model there are three that allow optimized voice recognition and that is much better. And, this is true even if there is a lot of noise around.

Google Nest Mini vs. Google Home Mini: price and which one to choose

In terms of price, both the Google Nest Mini and Google Home Mini are priced at $49, so you don’t need to compare their price.

In addition, there are not radical differences in design between the two. However, the ultrasound technology and more advanced AI chip may makes the Nest Mini smarter than its predecessor. So we recommend you to try the new one if you want to make a choice between the two.
