Black Friday might still be a few weeks away, but sales season always seems to start earlier each year. This means that there are actually plenty of money-saving deals to enjoy, especially if you’re looking to add some Google-backed smart devices to your home.
Now you can get Google Nest Audio for only $49 in the Google Store (Opens in a new tab), which is $50 off the regular price. Moreover, you can also Get the Google Nest Hub Max for $164 (Opens in a new tab)Save $65. These are great deals for great smart home appliances.
Needless to say, we love the Nest Audio. Not only does it earn 4 out of 5 stars in our Google Nest Audio review, but it’s also one of the best smart speakers you can buy right now – and the best Google Home speakers for a while.
For your money, you get a clean looking speaker, with a fabric exterior that can easily blend in with the rest of your home décor. It’s fairly large, but that means the Nest Audio is capable of delivering loud sound with really powerful bass that packs in. Google Assistant is also along the way, making controlling your music an absolute breeze. The only downside is that there is no option to add your own audio input, and everything must be streamed.
We also gave us 4 to 5 stars in our Google Nest Hub Max review, noting that Google’s smart home screen is an excellent alternative to Amazon’s Echo Show. This also makes it one of the best smart speakers, and the best Google Home speakers with a screen.
For your money, you’ll get an attractive design, powerful audio quality, and motion tracking to keep track of you and ensure you’re always in the center of your video call. Unfortunately, these calls are only available with Google Duo or Zoom and that means the 6.5MP camera is missing out on some of the best video chatting apps as a result.
The 10-inch touchscreen means there’s more to offer than Nest Audio, providing access to dozens of popular apps and services. This also means that you can control these apps with your hands, rather than relying on your voice. It’s not as secretive as Nest Audio, but the trade-off is definitely worth it.
