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.
I’m an Apple loyalist first and foremost, however with Google’s mesh wifi system, I had to switch as I got tired of spending $600 for a descent router. After switching, I got a little excited that I can add nest audio to my setup and I was a little weary that the sound would be sub par. I was wrong. They got these right. Now full disclosure, these aren’t a sonos situation, but for $59 (Black Friday deal) these are a home run and I love the added benefit of the “Hey Google” mic. Super accurate and well worth the switch. Now if they only sold a sub to pair with these little piece of awesomeness. Don’t hesitate.
Great sound, I bought two of them for 28 foot motorhome with a super slide that I live in, it’s about 300 ft.² and I listen to my music at about 80% volume because I like it loud, great bass and treble fills my motorhome
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.
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.
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).

If you are looking for great sound, get the Nest Audio. If you are looking for decent quality sound in every room, get the Nest Mini. Also, note that the Nest Mini frequently goes on sale for $30.
Hope this helps!
