Google Home Mini Top Touch Function Is Being Permanently Removed

Recent Google Home Mini bug saw it record far more than it should have

The company told him that it was "in the process of building a long-term fix, whatever it may be" but Mr Russakovskii said it was "too early to say if they're going to be able to deal with "phantom" touch events entirely in software or if a recall for affected units will be in order". The firm says it's done so in order to ensure that people have a complete peace of mind. Here is what critics have to say about Google's latest release.

Google's Android is the dominant mobile operating system in the world, and Chrome is the world's most popular web browser - but despite its many efforts over the years, like the Chromecast, Google has yet to conquer the living room.

Google Express may be far from Google's most successful service, but it's an obvious and necessary one to continue expanding, particularly as the company continues to go up against Amazon. You can see a statement from Google about the issue below. But it was discovered that units would register touches even if no one pressed it, causing the Home Mini to record over and over again.

Since the issue was first discovered, Google has gone ahead and disabled the top touch functionality on all Google Home Mini devices. Current Home Mini customers would be right to be bummed out, or annoyed, or nauseated. Saying "Ok Google" or "Hey Google" instead of pressing and holding the top of the Google Home Mini works to start a request, and saying "Ok Google" or "Hey Google pause/play/stop " instead of tapping the top of the Home Mini lets you control music, alarms, and timers.

Maybe you do a quick Google search to learn more about the Home Mini. You get it in the mail, open it up, and try using its various features. From next year the shoppers will be able to pick up their online made purchased items on Target stores that will b made ready by two hours as a part of the program of Google Express.

The same functionality is still available using voice. For now, though, Target is limiting those products to dry goods rather than perishable produce.

"We take user privacy and product quality concerns very seriously". According to Forrester Research, 12 percent of shoppers own some voice device like Echo or Google Home. It also once again raises the privacy issues of having these devices in your home.
