Google brings play and pause buttons back to the Home Mini

Google is bringing play and pause buttons back to the Home Mini today, after initially removing them due to an issue that could cause the device to constantly record users.

Instead of tapping the top of the Home Mini to start and stop playback as had been originally planned, owners will now be able to long press the volume buttons on either side of the device to control whateverís playing. That extends to music, news, alarms, phone calls, and so on. If itís playing, youíll be able to press and hold to stop it ó which can be a lot more convenient than using your voice if youíre already right beside the device.

The update will roll out to Home Mini units that are enrolled in Googleís software preview program today, and itís supposed to come to all units shortly after that.

Itís a simple and helpful fix to a kind of embarrassing problem ó the fact that the Home Miniís top button, on some units, could be accidentally triggered by the fabric. Originally, that button was going to be used for controlling playback and for letting people manually trigger the a.ssistant. But after Android Police noticed their unit recording nonstop, Google pulled the feature before the product could even ship.

This update suggests that Google couldnít get around the fabric issue, since itís using the side buttons instead of bringing the play/pause feature back to the top button. And while a long press isnít quite as convenient as tapping the top surface of the Mini, itís a handy addition thatís easy enough to remember and use.
