Google Home Mini slashed to just £15 – and is a smart speaker just like Amazon Alexa
YOU can bag a Google Home Mini for just over £15 in an impressive new deal.
The smart speaker is a direct rival to Alexa and the Amazon Echo speakers.

That means it can answer questions, play music and control your smart home – all through voice control.
Normally the Google Home Mini costs £49.99, which isn’t bad value for money.
But eBay is flogging refurbished versions of the speaker for much cheaper.
These are manufacturer refurbished products, which mean they come from the official Google refurbishment programme.

It means that the product you receive should be as good as new.
We’ve never seen a Google Home Mini discounted so low before, so this is an impressive saving.
It’s probably the cheapest way to put a smart speaker in your home right now.
So what is the Google Home Mini?
It’s a smart speaker powered by Google’s know-it-all Google Assistant.
Google Assistant is a virtual helper that you control using your voice.
She (or he, if you change the voice) can help you with everyday tasks like finding out about the news or weather.
It’ll set reminders and timers, let you check your Google calendar, play music, and even make hands-free calls.
All you need to do is say “OK Google” or “Hey Google” out loud, and then issue a command.
And if you have compatible smart home gadgets (like a Philips Hue Lightbulb or Nest Thermostat) then you’ll be able to control those using the Home Mini too.
