It’s the size and shape of a donut, so why not riff on that?
That’s apparently the theory behind a pop-up Home Mini showroom tour that Google is launching today in San Francisco in order to promote the brand new, smaller sibling of its year-old Home assistant.
Over the next few weeks, the charming little stores will also visit Los Angeles, Madison, Oklahoma City, Austin, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Chicago, Toronto, Manhattan, and Brooklyn.
“The new Google Home Mini is the size of a donut,” Google writes on the tour website, “with the powers of a superhero. Come get a taste at one of our pop-up donut shops – now on tour!”

The first stop, in San Francisco, is located just a few blocks away from where Google hosted its big Pixel phone event earlier today. At that event, it unveiled the new Home Mini, along with a slew of other products, including the new Pixel phones, as well as the Home Max smart speaker and a new Daydream View VR headset.DT
