The wall mount feature of the speaker allows one to mount it on a wall to save shelf space. Just like the existing line of Google’s smart speakers — Google Home and Google Mini — the Nest Mini also supports English as well as Hindi.
The company says that it has embedded a dedicated machine learning chip, with upto one TeraOPS of processing power in the Nest Mini to make it ‘faster and smarter’.
The device is said to be capable of learning the most common commands and process them locally for a faster response time. This feature is already available in the US and will be launched in India as well.
