Smart speakers are convenient. you can use them to play music, check the weather, set timers and alarms, and find answers to questions when you’re feeling too lazy to look them up on your phone. Like many connected devices, they come with some privacy concerns, though Google addressed many of them last year. Still, it’s worth checking out our guide on how to make your smart speaker as private as possible.
All of the speakers below feature Google Assistant: the main difference between them is the hardware. We’ve linked to applicable reviews for the devices mentioned below, but you might also want to check out our Best Smart Speakers buying guide. In short, the sound quality with any of these won’t blow you away like a Sonos Speaker would, for example, but Google smart speakers are generally more affordable, especially with discounts like these.

Looking for the Google Home Mini? Google’s smallest smart speaker was revamped in 2019, and somewhat confusingly, was treated to a name change. Though it was released back in 2016, we still like the Google Home. One of our biggest gripes when it fist debuted, was the lack of intelligent features, but that has since improved. This is an upgrade pick over the Nest Mini, as it has better sound.
If you didn’t initially see the discount, add two of the devices to your cart, and it should be automatically applied before checkout.
