Google’s Home Mini smart speaker and Google Wifi systems have been some of the most popular products of their category for the past few years, and now they’ve gotten refreshes.

Google’s collection of smart home devices are arguably the company’s most successful products, especially in the case of the Google Home Mini. Today at its media event in New York City, Google announced an updated version of that product in the Google Nest Mini and we’ve had a chance to get our hands on it.
We’re now less than an hour away from the Made by Google event, and we’re already fairly confident in what devices Google will be announcing. This morning, four of those products, the Google Pixel 4 (and 4 XL), Nest Mini, Nest Wifi Router and Nest Wifi Point, have all hit the Bluetooth SIG.

One of the new products we’re expecting to see alongside the Pixel 4’s launch next month is the Nest Mini. As we exclusively reported, the Google Nest Mini should bring a handful of improvements, but based on the latest information, it seems like the design won’t change much at all.

The Chromecast Audio was a pretty brilliant device. With a simple connection to the speakers you already owned, the small device could stream audio from your favorite services easily. Then, it was brutally murdered. Now, it seems like the “Nest Mini” Assistant speaker could end up being the Chromecast Audio replacement I’ve been waiting for.
Google plans to launch a followup to 2017’s Google Home Mini with a second-generation ‘Nest Mini,’ a reliable source tells 9to5Google. It’s a departure from the previous model in name, but also a substantial upgrade in features. This year’s Nest Mini will pack a wall mount, better sound, and more.
