Good News for Old Google Home Minis!

So I got a second GHM in the Black Friday sales for £20. I’m currently hiding it in my room before introducing it to the rest of the family and discovered that the new pairing feature for the nest minis is also available for the old versions. So for people who don’t mind the lower quality sound (maybe only me), you can get a smart stereo speaker for £40 as opposed to however much the max is. One question, has anyone who’s done this (with new or old) found that the assistant only comes from the left speaker in the pair?
