A smaller footprint and a cheaper entry point

from Tech Advisor
We're clearly big fans of the Google Assistant, and any device that makes it more accessible to the masses is well worth a second look in our book. If budget was no option then the standard Google Home offers significantly better audio quality, but for most people budget will unfortunately come into play should they wish to set up speakers in every room of the house...

Finally, Google takes the fight to Amazon

from Alphr
The Google Home Mini would be a nailed-on five-star product if Google had only spent a couple of quid putting in a 3.5mm headphone jack in every unit. But even if that is the case, seeing its big Seattle rival packing a headphone jack in should have been enough incentive to compete, even if Google didn’t think anyone would use it...

Echo Dot has some competition

from G Style Magazine
It was smart of Google to add the Mini to its catalog of smart speakers as it goes after the Echo Dot crowd and hits that sweet price point of $49.99. It will easily be a stocking stuffer this year just like the Chromecast in the past. You aren’t getting superb audio but at this price you can only expect so much... Full review

The perfect addition to Google's lineup

from PhoneArena
The $49 priced Google Home Mini is a ridiculously smart speaker package that has the same functional arsenal as its sibling, but in a more affordable price and compact design... Full review

A smaller and more affordable smart speaker

from Canadian Reviewer
Google Home Mini makes all of the features and connectivity available for less money and makes it posible to consider placing smart home and intelligent assistant functionality in other parts of your home... Full review

Taking aim at the Echo Dot

from Engadget
The Google Home Mini is both affordable and capable -- for $49 it can pull up loads of information, control your music and videos and manage a wide variety of smarthome devices. Its tiny speaker sounds better than expected, though you probably won't want to play music on it. But it does a lot for the price and provides an easy and affordable way to get the Google Assistant into your house... Full review

Affordability comes at a cost

from SlashGear
At $49, the Google Home Mini is undoubtedly a more affordable way to wade into Google’s vision of the voice-powered world. Indeed, even with the Google Home’s recent $109 promotion, you could outfit two rooms with its Mini sibling and still have change. Whether that’s cost-effective depends entirely on your expectations of use... Full review

A fantastic way to get onto the connected home bandwagon

from Fone Arena
The Google Home Mini is definitely not expensive for what it brings to the table. You’re making a compromise on the built-in speaker quality but functionality is the same as the full size Home at half the price point. It looks way better than the Echo Dot and simply feels a lot more approachable... Full review

Hard not to love

from Gizmodo
For the price of a decent dinner for two, the Google Home Mini is a conversation piece at worst. At best, it’s your new best friend... Full review

A gateway drug for the Google Assistant

from Ars Technica
I feel like the Mini is a good "test" device for those looking to dip their toes in the world of Google voice command products, but if you decide you like it, eventually the Mini will be relegated to a dusty closet and replaced with a bigger Google Home... Full review
