Google Launches New Nest Mini Speaker at Rs 4,499
Google Nest Mini, the new smart speaker that succeeds Google Home Mini, is available on Flipkart for Rs 4,499.
On Monday, Google announced the launch of a new smart speaker, Nest Mini, which is the successor of Google Home Mini. The device comes on two colours in chalk and Charcoal at Flipkart and can be bought for Rs 4,499.
When it comes to design and looks, Google's Nest Mini resembles the original Mini. It features fabric material on the exterior, which Google says has been made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.
Google says it has "completely re-engineered" Nest Mini with Google Assistant for a better experience. Nest Mini is said to deliver two-fold stronger bass than the original Google Home Mini. It also comes with audio tuning software to enhance the audio experience. Some of the smart audio features include the ability to operate in noisy environments as Assistant can automatically modulate the output sound recording depending upon the noise in the background. The proximity sensors help light up the LED as soon user's hand nears the device and shows the lights to guide where to tap or adjust the volume levels.
"Users can connect multiple Google or Nest speakers to build a sound system for their whole home. By simply creating different groups in the Google Home app, users can enjoy music, podcasts and more throughout their home. Additionally, with stream transfer, users can fill their home with sound by moving their music, audiobooks and podcasts from one speaker to another by just using voice," said Google in a release.
"Users even have the option of transferring music or podcasts from the phone to the speaker. For example, If you are hosting a dinner party, once you are done the cooking in the kitchen, just say, "Hey Google, move the music to the living room speaker," to keep the party going," it added.
Nest Mini comes with an exclusive machine learning chip which enables the device to learn the most common commands and process them locally for faster response time. So far, this was available to users in the US and will soon come for Indian users too.
