Google disables Home Mini’s top button so it won’t record everything
Google hasn’t even started shipping the Home Mini yet, but its launch has been marred by an unusual situation where some of the devices would record and upload practically any sound. As a result, Google says it’s taking the step of disabling all top touch functionality on the Home Mini. While owners can still control it using their voice and a volume switch on the side — that’s it. A software update for all existing Home Minis should roll out by September 15th, well ahead of the products retail debut on the 19th.
