  • Nest Mini Packs a Big Punch
    Verified BuyerReviewed by brensizzle - November 30, 2020

    Overview: Google's smaller version of the Google Home smart assistant which was originally released back in November of 2016. The Good: This is the second Google Home Mini (Sorry, I still call it that even though they rebranded it into "Nest") that I've purchased. These little smart speakers are tiny but pack a bunch as far as audio quality and volume are concerned. The term "Smart Speaker" rings true here - this thing can do a ton. From setting alarms and timers from you, to playing the daily news, it seems there's always a new feature to be discovered with this device. The microphone is surprisingly sensitive and will be able to hear your "Hey Google" ques even if you're a good distance away. I've played a ton of music on these devices, controlled Phillips Hue light systems, and used it to boost productivity through reminders and alarms. This thing is so well designed that I don't really see the need for the larger Google Nest products. The Bad: There have been some weird issues with inadvertent voice recording in the past. Google has subsequently removed that recording feature through patches. Still, the stigma of having a device unknowingly recording you is one that is hard to get rid of. The Other: This thing is loooooaded with cheesy puns and bad jokes. The Dad joke enthusiasts among us will love this thing. Just say, "Hey Google, tell me a joke" and prepare yourself! Recommended? Yes.

  • Better Than Echo In Certain Areas
    Verified BuyerReviewed by SirGalahad - June 17, 2020

    I have owned an Amazon Echo (old and newest gen) for years. It by far has the most apps that it works without. However, that doesn't mean it works well. I use this to mostly control my Hue Lighting and answer random questions throughout the day. Sometimes for music. The Echo when turning on lights would often give me some type of error, not work, or not hear me at all. I'm from Colorado (where most would say I don't have an accent), well educated, and enunciate well. Not bragging here just mentioning problems that make voice activated stuff not work so well. So, in other words I'm the ideal person for this device but it would still not pick me up half the time. So, I bought a Google Home now called Nest Mini. The application itself is more modern looking than Alexa (Echo). If you have any google application they are very similar. Setup was a lot easier and user friendly than on the Alexa. It also works a lot better. I would say you can do more on Alexa but Google executes what it can do a lot better. Wall mounting is easier on the Nest Mini than Echo. Google boots up faster. The answers are more detailed and correct. The voice prompts (how she interacts with you) is more natural as well. She actually notifies you what she is doing to verify it heard you. When I turn on my lights it's almost instant. No lag time and rarely comes back with errors. Also, search function goes into google which is way better than Alexa. Rarely does it tell me it doesn't understand or can't answer a question. It also hears me a lot better even when blasting music. Like I can whisper and it can hear me. For Alexa I practically had to yell at her which was awkward for us both. The Nest also looks a lot sleeker. Audio quality is similar. All around I recommend the Nest Mini 9/10 times over Alexa. That 1 time is for the specific application that Google Home doesn't support. So, Me and Her we are done. I've got a new BFF.

  • Google Nest Mini
    Reviewed by Scotia Breeze - October 25, 2020

    Hello Everyone, I purchased my "Google Nest Mini" and I cannot think of anything that I purchased for a long time that I enjoy as much as I do this. I call it my "google toy", I can talk to it and it answers me, never sassy, I will ask it to play me music, it does, I ask it to tell me the weather and it does that to. I am ordering light bulbs so I can ask it to turn on or turn off my lights for me. How kewl is that? I am 78 years young and this brings me a lot of pleasure. Since my husband passed away, this has been and will be my side kick until I am gone. I encourage everyone to get one. You won't be sorry and life is to short to spend your days alone. Take Care Everyone and Stay Safe. Hugs Scotia Breeze

  • Great sound for small speaker

    Easy voice command from any audible distance. Eloquent volume level. Google home app makes it easy to operate from any part of the world. Great to be used as intercome for multi-level homes. You can even use it to communicate with your family remotely.
