Google Nest Mini: Small is beautiful

The Google Nest Mini squeezes all the familiar smart voice features into a tiny --  and hangable -- body.
Bangalore, December 2 2019: Google, whose smart speaker range has matched  Amazon's, model for model,  has  gone ultra-thin in its latest avatar: the Google Nest Mini. This one  belts out sound that belies its size: twice as powerful as the earlier Home Mini. And you can smoothly shift music from your phone to speaker.
It does everything that the standard Google  does, at a fraction of the asking price. If you  say "OK,Google", nicely, it plays your music from any connected device or  serves as the oral version of the world's best  search engine. And now it does it in English and Hindi. 
A recent  feature -- Google Duo --    works like an intercom, letting you talk from one  Google device to another. You   can also  chromecast content to a smart TV. Most usefully this small   4-inch disc-shaped speaker weighs just 181 grams  and can be hung  unobtrusively on the wall.  For Rs 4499, that's a lot of smart speaking!
