Mobile phones and smart speakers will respond to your voice even if you're on the other side of the room thanks to the far-field microphone built into Google devices.

But if you try it for the first time, it's highly recommended to buy Google Home Mini (for a surprisingly affordable price) to try out the entire virtual assistant experience.
