The Home Mini basically does everything the full-sized Google Home does, just in a smaller package with a much smaller speaker. It'll answer questions, set timers and alarms, play music, read the news or information from the web, and control a relatively large collection of smart home devices such as Hue lights.

Is Google Assistant the same as Google home?
Google Assistant is a powerful tool, but it doesn't work the same way the Pixel that it does on Google Home, and both are different from the Android phone you already have. The older assistant used to be called Google Now, but now it's just called Google because Google sucks at naming stuff.
Can you make a phone call with Google home?
Google Home lets you call anyone in your contacts; it doesn't matter if they also own a Google Home speaker or not. You're calling their actual phone. There's no way to call someone else's Google Home like you can make Echo to Echo calls with Alexa. Google only supports outgoing calls.
