Since the Google Home app is used with so much of the configuration and user interface, it seems only natural that the ability to factory reset the smart speakers will be included. Surprisingly, it isn't, and wiping the computers necessitates pressing and holding physical buttons on each of the microphones...

How to Reset Google Home, Mini, and Max to Factory Settings


How to factory reset your Google Home

  1. Google Home
  2. Google Home Mini
  3. Google Home Max

1. Google Home

Make sure your Google Home is turned on and wired in. Then, look for the microphone button on the smart speaker's back.

When you're ready, press and hold the microphone button for 15 seconds to factory reset your system and wipe it clean. If you keep pressing the mouse, your Google Home will declare that its memory and settings will be erased. The Home will finish the reset process if you keep pressing the button.

2. Google Home Mini

The Home Mini has an FDR (factory data reset) button on the underside of the smart speaker, unlike the larger Home. Keep down this button for 15 seconds, just as you did in the previous stages. The Mini will then announce that the system will be cleaned if you manage to keep down the FDR button.

3. Google Home Max

Finally, the steps for erasing the Home Max are the same as for the Mini. Locate and keep the FDR button near the power cord for about 12 seconds. After the Assistant informs that the speaker will be reset, keep pressing the button.
