Google Home mini is now Google Nest mini

Google just released the 2019 version of Google Home mini, which is now called Google Nest mini. Google bought Nest, makers of other smart home devices, a few years ago, and now they are incorporating that name into the new products.

If you have been thinking of getting a Google Home mini, now you can get it (last years model) at a lower price.

Among the things they have changed in the 2019 model, is a new machine learning (artificial intelligence) chip that learns your habits without having to send data to Google. They also gave it a speaker with more bass capabilities, and visual feedback to help you find the volume buttons on the device (you can tell it to change volume instead).

I wonder if it will be equipped with an AUX port, making it possible to connect it to an even better speaker.

It's not, but you can connect it via Bluetooth to other speakers. I have done that.
