The Google Home Mini takes on the Amazon Echo Dot.

We're not sure how the Google Home Mini works, but we know it's adorable. 

Since we devoted most of yesterday's show to the Pixel 2 phone and Pixel Buds headphones, we wanted to save some time for the new smart speakers: the Google Home Mini and Max. But ... we ended up just talking about the Google Home Mini, which we got our hands on. 

It certainly looks better than the Amazon Echo Dot, which it's targeting, but Alfred had one deal breaker with the Home Mini. 

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by the CNET News team in New York and producer Bryan VanGelder.
