Not only will you find the latest Google Home deals across the current lineup here, but we’ll also help you choose the right smart speaker or monitor.
The Google Home family of smart speakers are among the most popular smart speakers on the market that benefit from convenient voice control. And don’t tell Alexa, but the Google Assistant has proven to be much smarter at responding to our requests. The Google Home and Google Home Mini are roughly on par with the Amazon Echo in terms of sound quality for music, but the newer version of the Google Home Max frankly beats any of the Amazon Echo speakers for audiophiles who want to feel every beat.
More features and apps are being added all the time, but for now, you can stream music from Google Play, Spotify, Tunein, or your phone. There are smart home tech features to pair, too, so watch in awe as smart lights and thermostats are told what to do. Even basic features prove incredibly easy to use, like adding items to shopping and to-do lists or setting alarms – finally, no more burning pizza!
The Google Home Mini is a smaller version of the Google Home, first unveiled in 2017. Instead of £129 / $129, like the big older brother, you pay $49 in the US and £49 in the UK for the Home Mini But you can get it at a much lower price at regular intervals throughout the year.
Naturally, the Google Home Mini comes with the Google Assistant, which means that you ask it questions as soon as you start with “Ok, Google.” With the power of the Google search engine behind it and its now very low price tag, Alexa’s time may be over.
Color options include chalk (gray), charcoal (black), coral (pink), and the latest entry is mint (light green). At such a cheap price, you might be tempted to get more than one, especially for family homes where the new streaming app lets you talk to any Google Home device in the house.
Google Home Mini deals have been strong lately as Google is keen to catch up on Amazon Echo Dot sales, so you rarely have to pay the full RRP. Check out our full Google Home Mini review for a full summary of the tiny smart speaker.
There are some modest upgrades to the Google Nest Mini – the long-awaited follow-up to the Google Home Mini. In terms of the visual design, nothing has changed, which is a bit disappointing in all honesty and certainly not many people will be trading their older model with an instant upgrade.
The Nest Mini has slightly improved capacitive control features for volume and playback, with sensor-activated LEDs that guide your hand to the correct control points. While the Google Nest Mini is still powered by the Google Assistant, it now uses onboard machine learning to fine-tune your queries and speed up response times across the Home Mini. There is also a new hole on the underside of the device that allows you to hang the speaker on the wall.
The woofer is backed by improved bass, and a larger speaker system is generally housed in the same chassis. We found the original to be surprisingly loud for a cheap music player, and the extra bass is appreciated here. The Nest Mini has the same starting price as the Home Mini but the older device often sells for a much lower price tag and we expect the Nest Mini to follow suit to keep pace with Amazon’s Echo Dot series.
The standard Google Home was the first smart speaker released by Google. It costs a little more than the Home Mini, but a more powerful speaker can be worth it if you want to play music louder. It’s a great mid-range option between choosing three speakers and much cheaper than the high-end Google Home Max.
So, what is the original Google Home price? Prices started around the $129 / £129 mark, but retailers are getting more competitive nowadays. We are seeing more discounts to keep the price much lower. Do you want to know more? Then check out our full Google Home review.
Google Home Hub has now been renamed Google Nest Hub. Retailers take some time to update their listings. These two elements are actually exactly Same thing, it’s just a name change. So don’t be alarmed if the retail box simply has a label above the old name.
We’ve waited a while to get a screen on one of Google’s smart speakers, and in late 2018 we finally got a screen with the Google Home Hub. With a suggested retail price of $149 / £139 / AU$219, the Nest Hub is significantly cheaper than the Amazon Echo Show of the same size.
The Google Nest Hub naturally supports a wide range of smart home products such as Hue bulbs, Nest thermostats, etc. Unlike the Amazon Echo Show, you get full YouTube support, which is great for watching music videos, trailers, cooking videos, how-to content, etc. – a huge advantage over the competing device. We often find that the voice-activated Google Assistant outperforms Amazon’s Alexa at every turn, too.
The Nest Hub does not have a built-in camera, so you cannot use it for video calls. If that’s something you really want, we’ve also rounded up the latest Amazon Echo Show prices for you or take a look at the Google Home Hub Max below. For more details on this, take a look at our Google Nest Hub review.
Want something a little bigger than the Google Nest Hub (also known as the Google Home Hub)? Then you might want to take a look at the newest member of the Google smart speaker family as it comes with a 10-inch screen.
Unlike the smaller version, there is a camera in this version that also gives you the option of video calls via the free Google Duo app that is also available on smartphones and computers. There is also a switch on the device to turn off the camera and microphone for added privacy.
The built-in Chromecast allows you to stream content directly to the screen too if you’re able to place the Nest Hub Max close enough to enjoy watching on its 10-inch screen since it’s not exactly designed to be held in your hands. The new gesture controls are a useful additional option for controlling media playback without raising your voice or touching the screen as well.
If camera features, gesture controls, and a larger screen aren’t your main points, then the smaller version is much cheaper than this one and might be your best option.
Okay, so are you after some serious flourishing of tunes? Then you’ll want to look at the monster-sized Google Home Max. This large speaker houses two 4.5-inch speakers for high fidelity music playback along with Google Assistant technology that has proven popular in the Google Home range of smart speakers. Technically, this speaker is what we call super smart because it will automatically adjust music playback depending on the size and position of the room. The microphone is also improved and is more than capable of picking up your requests from the other side of the room even with the music playing loudly.
Google Home Max prices tend to match the name at $399 / £399. However, prices have started to drop recently, so you should be able to get a better deal as explained above. If you want to see the full list, be sure to take a quick look at our Google Home Max review.
What are the Google Home rules?
The bottom of the original Google Home speaker can be swapped out with different “bases” to replace the default gray speaker. Although it is not cheap and official it is only available from Google Store (Opens in a new tab) At the time of writing.
Fabric bases are the cheapest at $20 / £18 and come in Mango (orange), Marine (green) and Violet. The metal bases cost $40 / £36 and come in carbon (black), copper and snow (slightly grey). We might just have to dispense with that violet.
We’ve seen some sales and imitations from third parties, especially those made of leather, in Amazon (Opens in a new tab) And the ebay (Opens in a new tab)but nothing particularly enticing so far and the prices aren’t much cheaper either.
