One of the constants in consumer societies is deals. As long as companies exist and make products, they'll try to discount them to move some inventory and gain market share. That's even more true when it comes to the smart home, where products are often considered novelties but can also provide a strong tie-in to an ecosystem. Like Amazon, Google wants you to grab its own smart speakers and connected devices, so it keeps discounting them to lure more of us in. I have enough smart devices in my home, but if you're still looking to beef up your own setup, there are some Google deals to take advantage of now. Read More

When Google recently decided to sell only company-made hardware in the Google Store, Nest products were kept in stock.

Last month, Nest announced that it would be starting to sell its products in Austria, Germany, Italy, and Spain. But at the time, the retail outlets where these products could be bought ranged from Amazon to Media Markt, ePrice, El Corte Ingles, and a couple more. They were all third-party retailers and not official Nest or Google entities.
If you prefer to get your gear straight from the source, the official Google Store has started to sell some of Nest's line-up in these countries and is also expanding availability in Belgium for the Cam Outdoor. In short, here's the list of new countries where you can buy different Nest products:
- Nest Learning Thermostat, 3rd generation: Italy, Spain (still not available in Austria or Germany)
- Nest Protect, 2nd generation: Austria, Germany (still not available in Italy or Spain)
- Nest Cam Indoor: Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain
- Nest Cam Outdoor: Austria, Belgium, Italy, Spain (was already available in Germany).
