Q: What does Google do with the conversations it records with the Google Nest Mini?

submitted by vj612612 - 5 months ago
  • A: Hi there, vj612612. Thanks for your inquiry. The Nest Mini will not listen to you unless you activate it with the words “Hey, Google” or “Okay, Google.” When it is actively listening, the Google Nest Mini does record conversations, and it doesn't stop there.

  • A: Hi there, Deb. The Google Nest Mini does not have the specific functionality of a dedicated voice amplifier. However, it can provide some alternative solutions that might be helpful depending on your needs. You can play audio at a high volume on the Mini itself, connect it to a larger Bluetooth speaker, create a multi-room audio group with other Google Assistant devices, or utilize accessibility features like sound boost and adjustable EQ. Depending on your specific requirements, some third-party apps might also offer microphone input amplification options. If you have questions and other concerns, please reach out to our dedicated team of specilaists on the Google Help Center "Contact Us" page.

American Eagle - 1 year ago
This device sounds great. It has a small footprint and is very simple. It is the most troubled device on the market today. It keeps disconnecting from bluetooth like 10's of times per day. The bigger problem is that it does't reconnect automatically and so far no fix. I updated the driver, disconnected and reconnected, removed the device and reinstalled, restored it back to factory settings and reinstalled. Used winds fix bluetooth issues, turning computers on and off. Visited a wide range of websites. Watched so many videos on YouTube that Google made more money from advertising than what the device is worth. No Solution. Now my questions to Google and particularly to its CEO Mr. Sundar Pichai . Are you going to fix these problems?. Does Google know about these problems and intentionally does not intend to fix them?. If so can you please not be as kind as you are in fixing these problems and tell us why? Best regards and the millions who own these devices are waiting for an answer.

Jessica - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
It has such good potential to be a great product but it does not stay connected via Bluetooth for more than an hour. And you can’t just easily reconnect once this happens (I give up most times). So playing music is a giant pain because it always disconnects after like 45 minutes! I should also add that after some research, this seems to be a universal problem with this device.
1 reply from Nest Support team - 1 year ago
Hello there, Jessica. We appreciate your feedback on the Nest Mini, and it’s unfortunate to hear your experience with its connectivity. We can imagine how hard you tried, and we’re sorry for the inconvenience this issue has caused you. We recommend checking your Wi-Fi network to see if your bandwidth is congested. This may happen if you have too many devices connected on the same bandwidth or if your network package is not enough to handle the data traffic on the network. Wireless interference can also give you trouble connecting Nest products or other wireless devices. It can also cause slow network communications or intermittent disconnections. So your Nest products might continuously disconnect and reconnect, or they may be slow to respond to app control. For more help, read the Troubleshooting Wireless Interference article at the Google Nest Help Center. If additional support is needed, you’re more than welcome to visit us anytime at the Google Nest Help page.

Hi there, Rob. Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We're sorry to hear that your Nest Mini stopped working.

I love this for when I am cleaning and need to skip, but my phone is out of reach. Only problem I'd the random stopping, I'll put a Playlist and after the first song it will just not continue. It does go off at other times without us speaking to it and is hard at times for it to play a certain song or even to hear you say hey Google.
1 reply from Nest Support team - 1 year ago
Hey there, Dyanne! We're glad to hear that you're loving Nest Mini. However, we're sorry to hear that it's randomly stopping. Here are some recommended steps you can try out that may be helpful with the issue: - Reboot your Nest Mini. Disconnect the power cable from Nest Mini and wait for 10 seconds before reconnecting again. - Reboot router. - Move your Nest Mini closer to the router and test. - Try to play music from another supported app and check if you will experience the same issue. - Try unlinking and relinking your preferred music streaming service from Nest Mini.

Inferior to Echo Dots and the Alexa ecosystem.

3 out of 5 stars
Mike C. - 1 year ago
originally posted on wyze.com
I decided to switch from the Alexa ecosystem to the Google assistant ecosystem because there were some annoyances with Alexa. I was excited to try the mini's because I read good reviews and read that the GA ecosystem was better than Alexa. However, after using them for a week I realized a few things. First, the Google nest mini audio was not even close to the audio of the 3rd generation dot let alone the 5th generation. The build quality was similar but the echo's are much heavy denoting a larger magnet and more solid state design. Another annoyance was the voices. You can change the voices but they don't sound as natural as the voices on the Alexa. The biggest problem I had was the google home app. It's terrible. The GUI is terrible, it's hard to use and disorganized. I preferred the alexa app much more on my iphone. With all of this I decided after using them for a week that I would return them. I'm back using alexa dots and I'm happy with the decision.
