One of Alexa’s best features has long been its Echo Dot, which is still one of our favourite tech bargains. But now the Google Assistant family (which we hope it calls the ‘G Force’) has fought back. The Home Mini (₹4499) is its shrunken voice assistant, giving you access to Google’s wealth of knowledge and hands-free home control in a charming little button. It comes in two colours (Charcoal and Chalk) with four LEDs, which also double as touch controls for quickly adjusting the volume. It’s shaping up to be a gadget essential, though we’re still waiting for it to fluently speak in Hindi. To add to that, Google's being nice and offers a free six-month subscription of Play Music with each device. Go order yours right now exclusively from Flipkart for ₹4,499. Hey Google, do everything.
