Google Home was the company's first stab at an Amazon Echo competitor-a smart home speaker imbued with a digital assistant. (Google has a machine-learning model trained on thousands of different room configurations.) The speaker will adjust itself dynamically if you move its position.

Google has announced that after Canada and the United States, now the UK is also going to get free hands free calling.

That's just the tip of the iceberg, really, as Google Home Mini can plug into all kinds of situations and be tuned to suit your personal home life as necessary. "Nest Hello along with Google Home would be able to automate door management for homes, security and many other home affairs", said Nest.

The Google Home Mini is a sleek design with rounded corners to make it look like an ornament and seemingly integrate into a room.

A woman tied to the man responsible for a massacre at a Las Vegas concert has a Memphis connection, FOX13 has learned. The wife of Stephen Paddock , a time desired by the forces of the order, was located "abroad", he said.

Following the original Home's launch, Google Assistant now also adopts Voice Match, meaning the service learns your (and your family's) voice to only respond as necessary.

With leaks dating back months, and most details accidentally revealed by Walmart yesterday, the launch of the Google Home Mini did not surprise us today. They are calling this feature "Smart Sound". One thing's for sure: we'll find out very soon.

The device also needs a power adapter and isn't meant to be portable, just like the Echo Dot. Like the rest of Google's home products, it should blend into most environments - though a speaker this large isn't going to be almost as invisible as the standard Home or Amazon's new Echo.

But what do you actually do with it?

So, even during booming audio, Google reckons the Home Max will be able to hear your voice requests. Earlier, it used Google Voice or Project random number.

You can then ask it all many of questions, commands and more, from controlling various smart home devices such as lighting, Chromecast and thermostats to playing games, getting the news and weather and finding out the answers to question. This step will allow you to do multi-step routines and also trigger the device with phrases like "good morning". In this case, telling your Home "where's my phone" will ping the nearest Android device paired with your Google account.

Much of what was in the rumour mill was true, including the three colour options and the fabric cover use. What's your favorite? Let us know!
