The Nest Mini will also reportedly have a headphone jack, but it's not clear whether it's created to be connected to a device to play music from the Nest Mini itself, or whether it's created to plug into external speakers. For those who're unaware, Google earlier this year moved its smart home products to Google Nest.
The Nest Mini will also reportedly include a built-in wall mount, to easily affix the speaker vertically to any flat surface, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack that could facilitate aux-in or out, depending on the objective.
The Google Home Mini is a great way to get your smart home started.
This could mean that the Nest Mini could be used as a presence sensor in your home security system, something that the Google Assistant ecosystem has been lacking. That said, the wall mounts for the Google Home Mini speaker are already available on online platforms.
More interestingly perhaps, the report states that the Nest Mini will include some sort of proximity awareness. Google might use this audio jack as audio input or as a replacement of Chromecast Audio. Google will also give users multiple colour options as the speaker will come in a series of colours.
Unlike Google Home Mini, the Google Nest Mini will ship with a 3.5mm headphone port. What use this will bring is unknown, however, 9to5Google says that their source claims this will reveal the current volume level when the Nest Mini is approached. We might see some similar development in the next-gen Nest Mini smart speaker. It will also boast a 3.5mm audio jack, putting the new smart speaker in direct competition with the Amazon Echo Dot.
To recall, Google had announced the plan to launch Nest Mini at the Google I/O conference. You should accept the facts on this article with a pinch of salt.
