Originally announced in 2016, the Google Home speaker was Google’s answer to Amazon’s Echo line. Featuring an air freshener-esque shape and a slew of smart capabilities, the Home device could do everything its Alexa-enabled counterpart could, but with the added benefit of Google support. For 2020, the speaker ditches the old design in favor of a more music-focused model.

Renamed the “Nest Audio”, Google’s latest smart speaker gains a new pillow-like shape and a number of upgrades over its predecessor. For instance, it comes with a 19mm tweeter to take care of sound at high frequencies, as well as a 75mm mid-woofer to boost its bass. What results is a speaker that’s not only 75% louder than the previous Google Home but that also puts out 50% more bass. And in addition to its enhanced music capabilities, the Nest Audio speaker can also automatically adapt its audio to the surrounding space, ensuring superior sound optimized just for you. But that’s not all — it also comes with a mic cutoff switch for privacy protection. Available now, you can pick up the Nest Audio speaker for $100.
