How can I reset my Google Home Mini in 1st Generation

Reset A Google Home Mini in 1st gen

For the first generation Mini, the reset button is located below the power cord on the bottom of my device. Do note that a factory reset cannot be performed with the Google Home app.

For both generations, the only way to perform a reset is with the buttons on the speaker. Completing a factory reset will clear the data from the device, and it will get the speaker ready for a new user.

  • Firstly, Press and hold the reset button for about 15 seconds to factory reset of my device.
  • Then, I’ll hear a chime once factory wipe is complete. That’s it.

How can I reset my Google Home Mini in 2nd Generation

Reset Google Home Mini 2nd Gen

There are currently two generations of the Google Home Mini. If there’s a wall-mount screw slot, it’s a second-generation model – commonly known as the Google Nest Mini. If there’s no screw slot at all, it’s a first-gen.

  • On the side of the device, I should see a microphone on/off switch.
  • First, flip that to the off position.
  • Then, the LED lights on the top of the speaker should pulse orange.
  • After about 5 seconds, the device will automatically begin the factory reset process.
  • Continue to hold for about 10 seconds.
  • Then, I should then hear a chime, indicating the reset process is complete. That’s it.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I use voice commands to reset Google Home Mini 2nd Gen?

No. I cannot use voice commands to reset Google Home Mini 2nd Gen.

Actually, none of the Google Home devices (Google Home, Google Home Mini, Google Home Max, Google Home Hub, Google Nest Hub, Google Nest Hub Max, and Google Nest Mini) supports factory data reset through voice commands.

This is probably a safety feature.

2. Can I use the Google Home app to reset Google Home Mini 2nd Gen?

No. There is no factory data reset option in the Google Home app.

Traditionally, the factory data reset is considered as “firmware” reset. It is traditionally implemented through a reset button (as Google Home Mini) or a reset hole (as in most Wi-Fi routers), because the software may be non-responsive to any inputs.

Of course, Google Home Mini 2nd Gen (Google Nest Mini) does not have a reset button or a reset hole. I have to hold the touch panel to reset the device.
