HomePod mini brings most of the features of the original HomePod into a smaller, more adorable form factor that people have loved, including iMore's Stephen Warwick, who had great things to say in his review:

The HomePod mini is a truly excellent speaker, and there's plenty to love. Compared to Apple's original HomePod, it has a tiny form factor, standing just 3.3-inches tall. That makes it great for squeezing into small spaces, and a dream addition to an office, kitchen, or bedroom that won't take up all the space of its big brother.

The HomePod mini is Apple's only smart speaker now. The company announced that it would be discontinuing the original full-sized HomePod earlier this year.
