Google Mest Mini 2nd Gen.

Community Member

I don’t have a QR code or 8 digit code for my Google Nest mini? 
I threw the original box away & my Nest doesn’t  have any attached QR code on it.

Is it useless now?

Will any Google Nest Mini code that I may find somewhere work for my Nest mini as well? 
Can someone send an 8 digit cord or tell me when I can find it online?





I saw a posting from a Google Nest Community Specialist saying we could contact Google Nest Support with the serial number printed on our device, and Support could then provide the QR code. I don't know if that is true or not, but the link to reach Support is:

This problem with missing QR codes keeps coming up in this forum. Google Nest should really enclose a document in each package labeled "SAVE THIS" that has the QR code and serial number for the Google Nest device.

Hey folks,


Thanks for reaching out — let's check this out.


A few questions: are you trying to setup your Google Nest Mini? If so, is this your first time setting it up? Could you share more details on what part of the set up it's asking you for the QR code? You can visit this link on how to set up your Nest Mini. Hope this helps!
