Home Mini (SG version here).
Coronavirus Disease COVID-19 pandemic has forced most people to stay home or work from home. After a while, we need some kind of entertainment for time out and relaxation. Say “Hey Google, entertain me” and she’ll give you options to choose.
Google Home mini is available in many countries including Asia. Sometimes we can can get it for free by purchasing certain partnering products or services. Google Home has over a million of Google Assistant actions or voice commands and close to 1000 actions for smart home controls. Although it’s released 2 years after Amazon Echo, it’s catching up fast while developing more 3rd-party actions and local language support. It’s the most popular alternative to Echo.
Like Amazon Echo, some of the online services are chargeable while some are available in US only. Meanwhile, some of the features have to be activated manually in the app. The voice instruction informs that the setting has to be set in the app but doesn’t tell which setting.
