The new device is designed to be used in multiple rooms of your house. It can also connect to any Chromecast device with a speaker.
Competing with Amazon’s Echo Dot, the device is a smaller, more affordable version of the original virtual assistant. Although they are capable of the same, the difference lies within the speaker quality.
As confirmed by Walmart’s leaks yesterday, the assistant will come in a variety of colors, including chalk, charcoal and coral, but won’t have switchable bases like its big brother.
Considering the original product was a little too big for comfort, it was only a matter of time until Google launched a tighter version — especially if you’re always on the move.
The Mini will be available for $49, with pre-orders available today.
