Will you soon be buying two Google Nest Minis? You can set the successor to the Google Home Mini as a stereo pair. In addition, the physical buttons return to the small device to be able to play, pause or stop music.
Yesterday, the Google Nest Mini was presented at the Made by Google event. The new Nest Mini is the successor to the Google Home Mini and gets better audio quality, a Google Assistant with a faster response time and comes directly with a wall mount to hang the small smart speaker on the wall. According to the Variety website , you can also set two Nest Minis as a stereo pair.
Yesterday at the Made by Google event, there was no mention of the possibility of setting two Nest Minis as a stereo pair, so we’ll keep a close eye on it. Still, it would certainly be a welcome addition. Previously, you could only use the large Google Home Max speaker in a stereo pair.
Physical buttons for music are returning
Did you know that the Google Home Mini also has physical buttons to start, stop or pause music? However, these buttons were disabled before launch via a firmware update because it caused problems with the microphones listening continuously. In the end, this was solved by assigning this function to the volume buttons. By holding it down for a while, you can use these buttons as a start / stop button. However, these physical buttons come back to the Google Nest Mini as it was originally intended.
