Google is finally realizing that one of the biggest reasons people buy a smart speaker is to be... a speaker. First generation Google Home was a great smart device and a mediocre speaker. Now with the Nest Audio we finally have an incredible Google Assistant device with an incredible speaker. I love the sound it produces. I love how loud it gets. I love the look of it. I love how sensitive the microphones are. I LOVE the price. I was on the fence about buying another Sonos One speaker, but I'm glad I waited because this is half the price, sounds just as good, and is a way better smart speaker. Also for some insane reason you still can't cast music to Sonos. Good riddance Sonos, hello Nest Audio.

Owned for 9 months when reviewed.
Great upgrade to the Google home line. Speaker's quality is clear and has decent bass. The assistant is very responsive and the device itself is very nice to look at so you do not have to worry about finding a location for it that is out of sight. Setting this bad boy to max volume will definitely get your place shaking.
I love the convenience of taking videos while the music still plays, the convenience of thinking of a song and asking it to play instead A fumble for my phone unlock it choose through thousands of songs just to play it, an absolute fact that it’s pink I love it
Purchased the speaker primarily to use in my bedroom with my iPad.
The sound was so good looks lie I will need to purchase a 2nd speaker to acquire a balanced sound. Which you can't get when the nest is paired with a Google Mini. One review called it the sweet spot between price and quality! Exactly right in my view.
I absolutely love the quality of this speaker! I currently own 3 of these speakers and have them connected to 6 other Google Speakers/hub around the home. It is awesome to have music playing from each speaker, with no lagging. This speaker can also be connected to other devices via Bluetooth. I highly recommend this speaker to anyone looking for an economical speaker with amazing sound.
Compact smart speaker sounds great for its size. Huge improvement over original Google Home. Great looking too.
I bought two a paired them as a stereo set which works very well. I have them in a rather open space so I don't think one on its own would be great sound for the whole room. However, with two of them, it works well.
These aren't going to blow your mind or produce massively loud volume. More like gentle giants (not physically).
