Google Home and Google Home Mini prices can vary around the net, so we’ve rounded up the cheapest deals.
The best Google Home prices aren’t hiding under a speaker-sized rock – they’re right here! Or, maybe you’re looking for the latest deals on the minuscule Google Home Mini? Either way, you don’t have to search any further because we find and list the best deals every day!
The Google Home and Google Home Mini are two of the top voice-activated smart speakers on the market, akin to Amazon’s Echo and Alexa devices though perhaps not quite as popular.
But this isn’t a popularity contest. This is about finding the best price for Google Home and Google Home Mini. And when it comes to function, all you need to do is simply say ‘Ok Google’ and ask your Home or Home Mini any question you like. Google Assistant uses the enormously powerful Google search engine to bring you the answer. It makes for a great party trick.
More features and apps are being added all the time, but right now you can stream music from Google Play, Spotify, Tunein or your phone. There are smart home tech features to pair it with too, so watch in awe as you smart lights and thermostats are told who’s boss. Even the basic features prove incredibly handy, such as adding items to shopping and to-do lists, or setting alarms – finally, no more burnt pizza!
So, how much is the original Google Home? Most prices start around the $129/£129 mark, but retailers are slowly getting more competitive. We’re seeing more discounts nowadays, or bundles often including a Chromecast dongle for free. Expect Amazon to respond with its own Amazon Echo deals too.
The Google Home Mini is a smaller cheaper version of Google Home, first unveiled in 2017. Instead of a pricey £129/$129, like its bigger older brother, you pay $49 in the US and £49 in the UK for the Home Mini.
Naturally, the Google Home Mini comes with Google Assistant, meaning you ask it questions by simply starting with, “Ok, Google.” And with the power of Google search engine behind it and now a super low price to match, Alexa’s time may be up.
Color options include chalk (grey), charcoal (black) and coral (pink). At such a cheap price point, you may be tempted to get more than one, especially for family homes as a new Broadcast app allows you to talk to any Google Home device in the house.
We update this article with the latest Google Home Mini deals from a range of retailers as and when they appear online.
The bottom part of the original Google Home speaker can be swapped out for different ‘bases’ to replace the default grey one. They’re not cheap though and the official ones are only available from the Google Store at the time of writing.
Fabric bases are the cheapest at $20/£18 and come in Mango (orange), Marine (green) and Violet. Metal bases are $40/£36 and come in Carbon (black), Copper and Snow (slightly grey). We might just have to splash out for that Violet one though.
We’ve seen some third-party sales and knock-offs, mainly leather-style ones, at Amazon and eBay, but nothing particularly tempting so far and the prices aren’t that much cheaper either.
