Google permanently removes top touch functionality on Home Mini
Yesterday, Artem shared his personal experience with the Google Home Mini, and how his unit began recording audio at random intervals. This was due to a hardware flaw, where the Mini believed that the top touch button was being pressed, which then prompted it to start listening for voice commands and sending the audio to Google’s servers. Google quickly disabled the top button via a software update while it worked on a possible solution.
