suddenly, it's about a week now, my Home Mini's microphone lost a lot of sensitivity to the control word "Hey Google".
Before I could whisper "Hey Google" and it will instantly start to listen, now sometimes I have shout loud to make it hear me.
I haven't drop it or anything, just suddenly happened.
I am the preview program.

Same problem here.  Must be software because I can nearly whisper and see the four lights go on, but my other mini in the kitchen (much further away) answers.

I'm having the same problem too the last few weeks. You have to shout at it and sometimes when it starts to listen, it mishears and does something quite random. Always worked well before but is now very unreliable

Quick troubleshooting question, would you be able to share what things you've tried to fix your issue? Also, have you tried to do a Factory Reset?
Let me know if you have any questions,
