Using existing google home mini as speaker and mic


HI, is it possible to use my google home mini to work with snips? How can it be done? Am using Hassio but do not see the audio input and output of the google home there. Google home detected as google cast with entity id media_player.room_1_speaker


Hi @stan, I think not. It’s not possible to use the microphone of the Google Home Mini for Snips, because the Audiostream goes directly to Google. I’m not sure whether the speaker can be used for audio output - But I know that Google doesn’t want their device to be used for anything else than their Google Assistant.
Here you can find other microphone and speaker suggestions that definitely work.


This is the new correct link.
