CBT takes a look at the Google Home Mini with updated touch controls. Shortly after launching the Mini, Google disabled all touch controls due to an issue with the touch control on the top of the device constantly being triggered even when not touched.
Google recently added some touch controls back to it’s Mini speaker. Here’s what you can do:
- To play, pause, stop music playback or end a phone call, long-press on either side of the Home Mini.
- Stop a timer or alarm with a tap on either side of the device.
- Tap the left side to decrease volume.
- Tap the right side to increase volume.
Touch control on the top of the Home Mini is still missing. You will need to summon Google Assistant using your voice, instead of a long-press on the top of Home Mini as was originally intended.
If the long-press actions aren’t working for you quite yet, be patient. An update is rolling out to all Google Home Mini devices to add the new touch controls.
