The size of the Google Home Mini is ideal for a portable speaker, but unfortunately it doesn’t have a battery, it always needs to be plugged in via the microUSB port. The Google Home Mini is a central device that helps connect and control with smart home devices, so this is why Google doesn’t equip the battery with it. The charger is quite nice, white and also white wires but also so that easy to dirty.
Next to the microUSB charging port, there is also a switch to turn on / off the mic to avoid accidentally activating Google Assistant when not needed.
The Google Home Mini has a built-in signal light below the speaker fabric. They include 4 circular LED lights, showing the status of Google Home Mini like calling Google Assistant, volume level. We can increase or decrease by touching the left or right speakers, in addition can order Google Home Mini to adjust. However, to play music, we have to order to next or stop.
