Google gifted me the Nest Mini to help promote their Frozen stories and I couldn’t have been more excited! I literally just have to say “Hey google, play a Frozen story” and the actual characters from the movie will start talking. You even get to choose which character tells the story. It’s super cool and Scarlett is loving it! The great part is that there is so much more to the Nest Mini that just the amazing Frozen stories for the kids.
Before I talk about the features, I just have to say that I love how compact it is! It’s super small and comes in different colors so you can make sure you have one that fits with the color scheme of whatever room you’re going to put it in. We got blue because Frozen, duh. Lol. If I were to have chosen a color though, I would’ve went with “chalk” (white) or “charcoal” (black-ish). You can even hang it on the wall.
Here are some of my favorite things about it:
- The speaker is loud and clear. Seriously, this thing is small but it’s mighty. The quality is pretty amazing too!
- You can easily stream your music with your Spotify account. Obsessed. “Hey Google, play my Old Skool Jamz playlist from Spotify!”
- It’s a virtual assistant! Ok so this is probably my favorite thing it offers even though I haven’t set it up yet lol. Google Assistant can give you reminders, you can ask questions about your schedule… etc. It’s basically Siri but just not on your phone. Yes please.
- You can control your house! Remember that Disney Channel movie “Smart Home?” Well, we don’t have a virtual maid but this is as close at it gets lol. Nest Mini can sync with bunch of smart devices so you can totally dim the lights, turn on the TV, turn up the heater, etc. all with the sound of your voice. YES.
Guys, and the absolute best part… it’s only $49!
What?! If someone told me all the features, I would’ve easily thought it was at least $100. I’ve linked them below as well as our super cute Frozen costumes! 🙂
