Google Home mini vs Amazon Echo dot. Microphone sensitivity. Testing the Echo dot vs Home mini. Connected to the same speakers, mini with a Chromecast audio dongle.
The Home Mini is unable to hear you when it is playing via the Chromecast audio in the same room, whilst the Echo dot performs well in comparison.
The Home mini won’t play podcasts over Chromecast, so pretty useless if that’s what you want to listen to.
And on a slightly unrelated matter, I can get a local airport METAR from Echo dot, whereas the Home mini just gives me normal weather.
The Home mini is going back given it does not work. More Echo’s on order.
