Deal: You can get Google Home for just $99 at Best Buy on Black Friday

Virtual assistants that live in our home seems to be the way of the future. Google Home and Amazon Echo are currently your two best options when it comes to these sort of smart speakers right now, and each one comes with their own set of pros and cons. Amazon's Alexa AI has been around for quite some time, and its overall support and functionality is currently greater than that of Google Home. However, with the Google Assistant on Home, you can harness the power of Google's insanely powerful search engine to answer any questions of yours that come to mind.

However, among all of these things, there's one thing that separates the two the most - price. Amazon Echo has a retail price of $179, whereas Google Home usually sells for $129. However, thanks to a new deal from Best Buy, Google Home will be an even more enticing option for those looking to save a few bucks when getting their next home assistant.

Between Thursday, November 24 and Saturday, November 26, Best Buy will sell Google Home for just $99 - $30 off of its normal retail price. In addition to those upfront savings, the purchase of a new Google Home will also grant you with six months of free access to YouTube Red/Google Play Music All Access. Amazon is also offering the Echo at a lower price of $139 for the holiday season, but Google Home is still the better buy in this case if you want to spend as little as possible.

Meh, I still don't see any MUST HAVE functions of either device. Hopefully some time in the need future that'll change though.

Good read, thanks for the share. I'm sure the feature set and functionality will evolve over time, but for now, I am content with turning the TV on and off by way of the remote control.
