You get a mini! You get a mini! You get a mini! All 19,596 in attendance at the Oracle Arena went home with a Google Home Mini. Thats a pretty nice gift on top of a Dubs win.
The Warriors and Google Nest teamed up for the unique giveaway during the NBA Western Conference Finals kick off Tuesday evening. The partnership is considered the largest and most valuable giveaway of a Google product at a live sporting event in history. It’s also the first-of-its-kind professional sports team giveaway for the brand.

For new users looking for ways to enjoy their new smart device, here are some ways Google Home Mini can assist in reaching wellness goals:
Get more sleep
Google Nest recently released the Gentle Sleep & Wake feature, available on any Google Home device to set a routine that gradually turns your compatible smart lights on (wake) or off (sleep) over the course of 30 minutes, to mimic the sunrise or help you prepare for bed. This gradual change of light helps improve the quality of your sleep.
Just say, “Hey Google,” then:
- “Turn on Gentle Wake up” to have your daily morning alarms pair with gradual brightening. Make sure to enable Gentle Wake Up on the same Google Home device you’ll set your alarms on.
- “Wake up my lights.”
- “Sleep my lights.”
- “Play white noise.”
- “Tell Headspace I’m ready for bed.” You can also say, “Hey Google, I want to meditate” to get recommendations like healing sounds, sleep sounds and more.
- “Read my book” to listen to your favorite audiobook hands-free with the Google Assistant
- “Whats the score of the warriors game?” Not a part of the “wellness” list but we had to throw that in there!
