It has only been a few months since we first caught sight of the new Google Nest Audio, a smart speaker that falls between the Nest Mini and Home Max in the Google hierarchy. Usually priced at $100, that’s what it’s selling for everywhere, including Walmart and the Google store. But right now, you can save $20 and get the at Best Buy.
The new Nest Audio stands about 7 inches tall and, as is the fashion these days, comes fabric-wrapped in any of five colors (chalk, charcoal, sand, sky and sage). There’s a privacy button that mutes the microphone, and it can connect with other devices via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
