In line with its previous announcement to bring the $349 crowd-pleaser to India in October, Google today announced the Pixel 4a at a price that is even lower than what was widely anticipated. The new Nest Audio speaker is also coming next week.

Google Store now sells bundles of Nest hardware at embarrassing prices

Remember a few months ago when Google teased an announcement for July 13th, only a week after the company said it was working on a new smart speaker?

Google's upcoming Nest Audio speaker gets the early unboxing treatment

It’s no secret that Google is about to reveal a long-overdue refresh to its original Home speaker from 2016 — yeah, the air freshener is that old. Google even released a short video showing off the Nest Audio way back in July, before we knew that would be its name.
