What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • No screen: Of course, you won't be able to use the Google Nest Mini for watching movies and TV or video chatting.
  • No Amazon Prime: Although Google provides shopping through Google Express, some people may prefer to do their online shopping on Amazon.
  • Less functions than Amazon smart speakers: The Google Assistant has a fraction of the actions/ skills of Alexa, which reigns supreme when it comes to voice assistants.

Bottom Line

Want to get Google Assistant for a fraction of the cost of their Nest Hub smart displays? Meet the Google Nest Mini, a smart speaker costing only $49.
