  • Some Google Home Mini devices were found to be listening to their surroundings even when not being called upon. Something with the top area on the Home Mini has a malfunction that made this all occur.
  • Being unable to fix it, Google simply had to issue a workaround fix: turn off the touch sensitive area on the top of the unit.
  • With the latest update to the Home Mini, you can now play/pause media playback with a long press of either of those volume buttons on the sides.
  • The update is available to those in the Google Home Preview Program and will roll out to all units shortly.
