TicHome Mini is Google’s version of the Echo Dot.

Except its not by Google. Instead it’s by this company called Mobvoi. It’s the same company that launched the successful kickstarter campaign for the ticwatch.

The ticHome mini runs on Android Assistant, looks sporty and is designed to be brought out and about. This is evidenced by the IPX6 rating that it has. According to Outdoor tech, this means that  “It protects from powerful water jets.” This should be sufficient enough to cater for light splashes by the pool side. It comes 5 colours so matching your home decor wouldn’t be a problem.

Bring it to the pool, kitchen, or toilet.

No availability nor price has been mentioned at the moment. However, you could sign up for their newsletter to get the latest updates.

The ticHome mini is certainly eye catching and stylish and at the moment gives and alternative to Google Home. Expect to see more companies coming up with their Google Assistant smart speakers in the near future.
