The year 2020 is coming to a close, but it’s still a good time to buy new smart home devices with all the Google Home and Google Nest Mini deals that are still available. If you’re thinking about purchasing a smart speaker for the New Year, you should take a look at Walmart’s $24 discount for the second-generation Google Nest Mini, in an offer that slashes its price to just $25 from its original price of $49.
The second-generation Google Nest Mini features better sound and faster processing compared to the first generation of the smart speaker. It also comes with small improvements such as a small cutout for a screw to mount the Google Nest Mini on the wall, which is a minor change but is a welcome one as it opens up a lot of options on where you want to place the device.
With the Google Assistant powering the Google Nest Mini, you can use voice commands to ask questions, set alarms, control other smart home devices, and access entertainment options such as Spotify and YouTube Music. The Voice Match feature enables personalized schedules and reminders for each person in the house, and it can also be used as an intercom to call other Google Nest smart speakers that are installed in your home.
When comparing the Google Nest Mini and Google Home Mini, the Google Nest Mini offers sound improvements and upgraded hardware. Meanwhile, between the Google Nest Mini and Amazon Echo Dot, the Google Nest Mini is smaller and lighter, with better voice recognition and compatibility if you’ve invested in other Google smart home devices.
The second-generation Google Nest Mini is a huge improvement from its predecessor, and with its helpful features, it will be a valuable addition to any home. The smart speaker, which already holds great value at its original price of $49, is an even better deal with Walmart’s $24 discount that brings the Google Nest Mini’s price down to just $25. It won’t arrive in time for the New Year’s Day celebration, but if you want to start the year with the smart speaker in your home, you should click that Buy Now button as soon as you can.
