Google has announced the phase-out plan for Google Play Music — with South Africa being one of the first countries that to lose access…
The Google Home smart speaker is one of the cooler Google devices released in recent years, offering useful features in a handy format.
Between general voice queries, music playback and reminders, it (along with Amazon’s Echo) popularised the idea of a smart speaker in the first place.
Now, 9to5Google has uncovered evidence of a Google Home Mini device, essentially being a smaller, cheaper version of the original smart speaker.
The publication dug through the Google Home app, finding an image of the diminutive gadget.

In a rather hilarious turn of events, a Twitter user living near Google’s campus also stumbled upon a neighbour with the Mini speaker.

The evidence keeps piling up, with Walmart listing the device for preorder, with a 19 October release date, as seen by Droid-Life.
If it’s anything like Amazon’s Echo Dot, we can expect a similar US$50 price tag, music playback, voice queries, alarm/reminder functionality and smart home capabilities.
