Sonos speakers are popular thanks to their reliability and high-quality audio. Sadly, they're also known for being expensive. Thankfully, the Sonos Move portable speaker, which comes with a bunch of features, is currently $100 off, selling for just $299, making it much more affordable than usual.
Bit by bit, Google is stripping Play Music (GPM) away from the service's loyal users, gnawing at every feature and integration, and switching it over to YouTube Music. The latest victim is the Assistant integration which lets you play your music on Home, Nest, and third-party speakers and displays.
Like every year, Amazon is discounting a lot of its products for Prime Day, a moment a lot of people eagerly wait for, so they can snatch Echo or Kindle devices at a steal. This year, the retailer is selling its third-generation Echo Dot for just $19, which is $21 cheaper than its normal price tag.
But what if you prefer to use Google Assistant? Well, you're in for a treat, as the latest generation Nest Mini is also on sale, currently down to $30, representing a $20 markdown compared to its regular price. Sure, that's $11 more than the Echo Dot, but at least you're getting the newest model, instead of the outdated one.
Amazon held an important event last week, during which it announced a bunch of new devices, including a revamped range of Echo speakers. Despite their very recent unveiling, the company wants to give early buyers a discount for pre-ordering the new Echo lineup, provided you buy them in pairs and use one of the promo codes below.
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. Just days before it’s set to launch officially, someone was able to get hold of a Nest Audio unit that went on sale prematurely, which they then unboxed for our viewing pleasure, much like what happened with the Chromecast with Google TV dongle.
Google is poised to launch its new lineup of smart home products on September 30, and one of the new additions will be a smart speaker branded under the Nest Audio name. Earlier this summer we heard rumors about a premium Google Home successor and got an early, unflattering look when the device passed through the FCC. Google gifted us a video last month, and just a few days ago, the branding for the speaker was uncovered. Now we've got official product photos and some exclusive details to share.
Following those previous leaks, Google has taken a page out of its own book and shown us a glimpse of "what the Nest team is working on from home." The images (and video!) clearly depict the upcoming Nest Speaker, confirming the overall design we saw earlier today.
The Echo Plus is Amazon's high-end smart speaker, with improved sound and a built-in Zigbee hub over the base model. It's usually priced in the $100-150 range, but now you can get it for the lowest recorded price yet — $79.99.
