You now have another, cheaper way to access Google Assistant.

Google has announced a smaller, cheaper Home speaker, the Google Home Mini. Here's what you need to know!

What is it?

It's a Google Home, but smaller! It's both voice- and touch-enabled, similar to the larger Google Home. And while the speaker isn't quite as powerful as Home, Google says that the rounded design allows for 360-degree sound that can fill a room. And the fabric surrounding the speaker makes it attractive and easy to integrate into any decor.

It also connects to any Chromecast Audio speaker if you need bigger, brighter sound.
