How to reset your Google Mini if the usual process doesn’t work
It’s possible that your speaker won’t respond to the standard reset procedure if it is misbehaving. If you can’t get the Google Mini to reset, Google has included a backup method for resetting it. It’s time-consuming and laborious, but it should work even if the primary process fails.
1. Wait 10 seconds after unplugging your Google Mini, then reconnect it. Wait for all four LED lights on the top of the speaker to light up.
2. To fully charge the battery, repeat these steps ten additional times – unplug it, wait, and then reconnect it again until the lights come on. Do this 11 times at once.
3. When you insert the Mini for the last time, it should take a little longer to start up — it’s resetting and then rebooting when it comes back on.
If you bought a new Google Home Mini and want to reset it before using it or for some other reason, this is the procedure to follow. This is by far the simplest method.
