Google nest mini setup code purpose

Community Member

Hello everyone!


  • I wanted to bring somebody's attention that when I set up my Google nest mini, I didn't have any problems.  Then one day, we had a power outage and the mini got disconnected somehow. I went back through the setup and set it all up.
  • Then today It's off again!Before I began setup I looked at bottom and faintly at the very bottom near the plug is a setup code.  but never was I asked to give a set up code during set up any time I've set the GNM up. I'm wondering, would set up have been so much easier if I logged in and it said "
  • "Welcome to Google Nest Mini please enter the code on the bottom of your device". 
  • 💥 BOOM!!
  •   You're  all set to go.
  • YEAH?  LOL
  • Is there somewhere like that?
  • if there's not - there really should be?!
  • Would be a hell of a lot easier, don't you think?
  • Thank you for your time.
  • I hope this issues already been covered and I just couldn't find it. Have a good day and I hope I remember to come back and look at the answers.( if anybody bothers to answer. Usually no one ever answers) So we shall see what happens👍
