Google added a live Assistant demo to the Google Store

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018

Google arguably has the most powerful AI assistant platform in the world, but it's hard to get a feel for what Assistant can do without using it. The Home Mini is the easiest way to get into the Assistant ecosystem, and the Google Store page now has a working demo of Assistant built right in.

The demo is about a quarter of the way down the page. When you click to start the demo, the page asks for microphone access, and then it's just like Google Assistant on a Google Home or your phone.

Ninety7 introduces JOT battery base for Google Home Mini

Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

As their names imply, Google's Home devices are designed with the intention of keeping them inside, but they're not always as portable as we’d like them to be. Since the company doesn't provide a way to use the units without plugging them into a wall outlet, third-party manufacturers have seized the opportunity to release battery bases. Ninety7 has just added the JOT to their line of solutions for smart speakers.

Last year, we reviewed Ninety7's LOFT battery base for Google Home and, while the hardware was solid, we questioned the need for it–the added bulk and constant recharging seemed to be a bit much.

Google ‘Smart TV Kit’ with Home Mini and next-gen Chromecast gets leaked

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

Over the past year, Google has been adding more Assistant functionality to the Chromecast. You can ask your Google Home to play a movie on your TV or see who's at the door, and the result appears on your TV. Google has already been selling the Chromecast and Home Mini in a bundle, but now the package is being renamed to the 'Smart TV Kit.'

The below image was posted to the Google Pixel subreddit by user LitheBeep, with the caption "Just got these bad boys in at work today." The packaging is similar to the existing bundle, but it has the unreleased third-generation Chromecast instead of the current model.

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

In late May, we noted that a Spain launch for the Home and Home Mini was imminent after the duo showed up on a Spanish retailer's site. That wasn't entirely surprising given that Google had mentioned they'd be coming to Spain sometime in 2018. A few weeks later, the Home and Home Mini are now available from the Google Store not just in Spain, but surprisingly enough, also in Austria and Ireland.
