Google home mini a very crazy gadget loaded with a bunch of unique features. But Google is having new bug issues with the gadget like they already faced before. Google has fixed the previous bugs just weeks ago. Now Home mini is showing up with other new bugs.

When you are listening to songs with Google Home Mini, it reboots the device if the volume is turned up to a particular level. The gadget crashes if the volume is maxed, and also if multiple songs are getting played on the device. One of the users said on the Google Product Forum that “Not sure that this is the EXACT problem but it is the symptoms. If I’m playing a song on Play music, then it will reboot after a few seconds. After reboot, if I say “Set volume to 6” it will play the song ok. This happens with multiple songs and extremely often.

Google Home Mini’s got issues

Google was quite quick to reply to the forum. One of the executives replied and said “Thank you all for reporting this issue and filing feedback. We’re aware of this issue and working on a fix. If anyone else is experiencing this issue, please let us know,”

However, the exact issue is not clear that is causing the crash of Google Home Mini. It has other issues with volume adjusting, we all know that we could set the volume of the Google Home Mini from 0 to 100. But if it is told to set the volume to 50, it replies “I can only set the volume between 0 and 100%”.

The people of Google Home Mini spotted another bug that is the device starts recording the voice of users automatically without letting the user know about it. After telling it to stop,again and again, it does not stop recording the voice of the user. We all know that the Google Home Mini has three very sensitive touch buttons on it. Two of them on either side to adjust the volume and the one in the centeris to turn the device on.

One of the users named Artem Russakovskii mentioned an issue that, the device recorded many voice commands and saved them to improve the experiences unknowingly, even without the voice commands like “OK Google” or “Hey Google”.

Google replied to Artem Russakovskii through an email and said “We have learned of an issue impacting a small number of Google Home Minis that could cause the touch mechanism to behave incorrectly. We are rolling out a software update today that should address the issue. If you’re having any additional issues, please feel free to contact Google Support at 1-855-971-9121,”

So, Google is figuring out the issues with the Google Home Mini and fixing it as soon as possible, and getting the device ready to reach the users even without any minor fault.
