Check out our full written Nest Thermostat review.

Just a few months after Google’s $3.2 billion dollar acquisition of Nest, the company’s Learning Thermostat is now for sale on Google Play for $249. Since the company’s smart smoke alarm, Nest Protect, is temporarily unavailable while a software glitch is being fixed, the thermostat is the only Nest product available on Google Play for the time being.

What’s noteworthy is that this makes Nest’s thermostat the first and only product to be available on both Google and Apple’s retail sites simultaneously. The fact that it’s available through so many different outlets, including Lowes, Nest and Amazon, is a sign of the company’s prominent presence in the rapidly growing connected home space.

Earlier this month, Nest launched a completely new version of the Learning Thermostat, designed specifically for UK households. This gives the company a strong foothold from which to push into other European markets — ones that are similar to the UK in terms of home heating architecture, and consumer preferences as well.

Even in the wake of a recent lawsuit claiming that the company’s thermostats don’t work as advertised, it seems that Nest is quite a force to be reckoned with right now.

Our favorite Memorial Day washer & dryer bundle

One of the worst parts about doing laundry is the fact that you have to have both a washer and a dryer. They're bulky, take up space, and are both relatively expensive machines. That's why we're excited about this deal from Samsung, which is surprisingly one of the best places to buy a washer and dryer, on the Bespoke AI Laundry Combo. At just 27 x 43.7 x 34.4 inches this single machine takes your clothing from washed to dried in about 98 minutes, without you needing to transfer anything over to another space-hogging machine.
