Hey there! If you're looking to reset your Google Home Mini, I've got you covered. Resetting your Google Home Mini can be helpful if you're experiencing issues with the device or if you want to start fresh with a clean slate. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do it:
Step 1: Locate the reset button
The first thing you'll need to do is locate the reset button on your Google Home Mini. The reset button is a small, circular indentation on the bottom of the device. You might need to use a paperclip or a similar tool to press it.
Step 2: Press and hold the reset button
Once you've found the reset button, press and hold it for about 15 seconds. You'll need to keep holding it until you hear the Google Assistant say, "You're about to reset your Google Home Mini to its original factory settings."
Step 3: Confirm the reset
After you hear the confirmation message, release the reset button. The Google Home Mini will then start the reset process. You'll hear the Google Assistant say, "To confirm, just say 'Yes'."
Step 4: Confirm the reset verbally
To confirm the reset, simply say "Yes" within a few seconds of hearing the prompt. The Google Home Mini will then proceed to reset itself. You'll hear the Google Assistant say, "Alright, your Google Home Mini will now reset. This will take about a minute."
Step 5: Wait for the reset to complete
Now, all you have to do is wait for the reset process to complete. It usually takes about a minute for the Google Home Mini to reset itself. During this time, you'll hear the Google Assistant say, "I'm resetting the device now. Please wait."
Step 6: Set up your Google Home Mini again
Once the reset is complete, the Google Home Mini will automatically restart. You'll then need to set it up again using the Google Home app on your smartphone or tablet. Simply follow the on-screen instructions to connect your Google Home Mini to your Wi-Fi network and link it to your Google account.
