Mini Link is a portable smart speaker designed to assist with everyday tasks. Its smooth form makes it a delight to hold, and its simplicity allows the user to focus on the experience rather than the technology. The front button is dedicated to easily call up the assistant without a wake-up word, and the side button allows the assistant to send and read messages just with your voice. Provided accessories allow the user to experience the Kakao-i Platform almost anywhere, even in your car. Available with matching cases, straps, and rings, making this life assistant approachable and friendly for all audiences.
