Product Expert smart home hubs

The Google Home Mini speaker is your hands-free help around the house. You can ask questions or give this smart assistant commands. The assistant can be set per language and country. You'll receive the most up-to-date information on things like train schedules, the weather, and the news of the country you've set. This isn't available for Belgium yet. With the smart speaker, you'll know right away when your first meeting is scheduled. You can order it to play music or dim your smart lights. Thanks to voice recognition, up to 6 people can use the speaker. Connect the smart speaker to AC power, then use Bluetooth to link it to the Google Home app on your smartphone. Adjust settings like the speaker's spoken language and the temperature indication. Connect the speaker to a Google Chromecast to use voice control to stream videos to your television via the speaker, and to connect the Mini to other Google Cast-supported speakers for higher sound quality.

Note: the Google Home Mini is a digital assistant. Want to be able to play music with the Google Home Mini? Then you should connect it to other Google Assistant-compatible speakers in your home.


Note: Google Home Mini's Flemish version isn't available yet. This means you'll have to use the Dutch or French version in Belgium. When you ask Google Home Mini questions about the news or the weather, for example, it'll give you answers relevant to the Netherlands or France. Of course, the other smart options, like controlling your lighting, your thermostat, or your music, are available.

"Great device"

  • Pros:
    Dutch Language
  • Pros:
    Clean look

Had an Alexa for a month. But this had alot of limitation for us here in Europe, specifically in Belgium. This is the reason why I switched to the Google Assistant and I am very happy with the device.

  • Pros:
    Easy installation and WiFi pairing
  • Pros:
    Good sound quality
  • Pros:
    A good first step to build a smart home
  • Con:
    Sound distortions at high volume
  • Con:
    Not all services are available in Belgium
  • Con:
    Requires a smartphone to setup

Once installed, a lot of new services become available at the tip of your tongue.
Setting reminders, timers, adding things on your shopping list...
But it can also help to stream playlists, and it will also pair nicely with a Chromecast, so you can ask your home mini to stream that latest trending show from Netflix on your TV...

The possibilities are endless !
