The Google Home Mini was revealed earlier this week in some leaked press photos. Rumors have suggested Google would make a smaller Google Home since August, but this was our first real indication that it would happen. Now, we have even more evidence as the device passes through the FCC.
An FCC listing for a “media streaming device” showed up under Google’s code. The device’s ID is A4RH0A, which is close to the original Google Home’s ID A4RH0ME. The first Google Home was also described as a “media streaming device.” The FCC filing gives us a few little details. The device supports 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi and Bluetooth Low Energy.
The Google Home Mini is said to cost just $50 when it launches. We should hear more about this device at Google’s October 4th event. Are you excited about the Mini?
