But if you haven't been able to obtain a gratis pint-sized smart speaker and you're not interested in buying a two-pack or three-pack combo either, you might want to take advantage of a killer new 24-hour-only deal available at A4C right now. The respectable e-tailer is primarily known for its massive discounts on refurbished and pre-owned gadgets, but the Google Home Mini on sale today is brand-new and, presumably, backed by a standard manufacturer warranty.
Typically sold for $49.99, the Google Assistant-controlled device can be had at a measly $24.95 in a "Charcoal" color, representing a remarkable 50 percent off the smart speaker's list price. That's pretty much an unprecedented markdown for a single, non-refurbished unit, which currently fetches the full 50 bucks both through Google's official US e-store and authorized third-party retailers like Best Buy.
$24.95 is an insanely low price for a tiny but exceptionally powerful and versatile gadget that can leverage the complex AI capabilities of the Google Assistant to correctly answer the most diverse questions, offer information on weather, traffic, finance, sports, and many other areas of interest, play music, set reminders, connect to your TV via a Chromecast streaming device, and even control various smart home accessories, all by just listening to your voice.
