Just in case it wasn't abundantly clear a few weeks ago, being able to snap up the Google Home at a reduced price of $29
was a unique and unmissable opportunity despite the smart speaker's advanced age.
If you feel like you absolutely have to own this thing, you can still purchase it from B&H Photo Video
, but we would definitely not advise you to do so at a $99 price. Instead, you might want to wait and see what Google has in the pipeline in terms of new smart speaker announcements. After all, this chubby cylinder is almost four years old, and even the aforementioned Nest Hub Max smart display is starting to get a bit long in the tooth.
There are many reasons why Amazon remains unchallenged at the top of the smart speaker vendor ranks
, with the long-time absence of a second-gen Google Home undoubtedly impacting the appeal of the search giant's entire product lineup.
Unfortunately, with Google I/O canceled this year
, we have no idea when we might see a device likely to adopt the Nest branding (one way or another) formally announced and commercially released. Mum's the word on features as well, although an audio quality upgrade seems pretty much guaranteed, as is a design overhaul... of some sort.
