Google Nest Audio review: a better-sounding Google Assistant smart speaker

 

The Nest Audio is Google's new mid-price smart speaker, but is it overshadowed by the new Amazon Echo?

Google Nest Audio review

 

We take an in-depth look at the Google Nest Audio.

Subtle and unassuming design Picks up voice commands very well Better sound than its predecessor

Missing detail in the mids and trebles Can sound harsh at higher volumes

Google promises big things when it comes to the sound quality of the successor to the original Google Home smart speaker, but while it is an improvement, it doesn’t deliver the jump in performance we were hoping for. However, it does work very well as...

Google Nest Audio review

 

Google aims to prioritise sound quality over voice smarts

Google Assistant works impeccably ; Easy set-up ; Improved build and finish

Sound lacks weight and punch ; Harsh through the treble ; Not as room filling as expected

If you want Google’s smarts and a slightly louder sound, this could be the device. But it isn’t quite the audio-focused speaker we’d hoped for

Google Nest Audio review: A great all-rounder

 

A refreshed speaker from Google that's a great replacement for the Google Home.

Design ; Decent sound quality ; Google Assistant integration ; Effective touch controls ; Good value for money

Some hiss around Google Assistant audio ; No Zigbee controller to directly setup smart products

Google has clearly positioned Nest Audio to be a natural rival to the Amazon Echo - a speaker to provide music, information and voice control whenever you want it. The competition from Amazon is still fierce, but in the Nest Audio, Google now has a...

Google Nest Audio Review

 

Google's latest Echo rival sets its sights on providing a better audio experience for smart speaker fans. The new Nest Audio certainly reaches new audio heights for Google's speaker range while also keeping the experience simple for the smart home novice.

– Easy to set up, enhanced audio and pleasing design

– Pesky bugs

Google Nest Audio is the Amazon Echo 4th Gen rival that Google fans have been waiting for – offering a similar Google Assistant experience to past devices with significantly enhanced audio. Unfortunately, the Nest Audio falls short of greatness with...

Google Nest Audio review

 

As a smart speaker with improved audio prowess, it absolutely delivers

Improved sound on Google Home ; Voice commands are picked up well ; Neat, unassuming design ; Good value

Sound lacks some detail and dynamism ; Can distort at loud volumes

If you’re focused on sound quality, you might find the Nest Audio wanting. Look at it as a smart speaker with improved audio prowess, and it absolutely delivers.

Google Nest Audio

 

Google has finally replaced its Home smart speaker, and if you're ok with the slightly unusual design, the Nest Audio is a great value for money all-rounder

Google Nest Audio review: A simply brilliant smart speaker

 

Google's renewed focus on audio quality pays off – the Nest Audio is a fabulous smart speaker

Effective voice recognition ; Reasonable price ; Sounds great

No 3.5mm audio output/input ; Slightly fiddly touch controls

Otherwise, there’s plenty to shout about here. Indeed, the long-awaited Google Nest Audio is the successor the Google Home has long deserved.

Google Nest Audio review: smart speaker gets music upgrade

 

Google's first smart speaker has finally got a much-needed upgrade in sound with the new Nest Audio. The speaker replaces the Google Home and costs £89.99, fitting in between the £49 Nest Mini and £299 Google Home Max. The design is completely...

Great, room-filling sound for the money, can be paired, made of recycled plastic, Google Assistant, Bluetooth 5.0, wifi, native BBC radio playback.

No 3.5mm input, potential privacy concerns of a smart speaker, no separate Assistant volume, Ambient IQ auto-volume not strong enough, doesn’t play with non-Google speakers.

If you just want a voice-assistant to answer questions and set timers, the Nest Mini is often less than half the price. But the Nest Audio is a good-sounding, good value Google Assistant smart speaker that brings Google back up to par with Amazon’s...

Google Nest Audio review: A steal at $100

 

For $100, the Nest Audio offers dramatically better music quality than what you get from small speakers like the Nest Mini. It's not the best-sounded smart speaker on the market, but for most people it'll be a major upgrade and it won't break the bank.

Good audio quality ; Sounds great when two speakers are paired in stereo ; Attractive minimalist design ; Comes in five colors ; Google Assistant remains a solid option for smart home control ; Reasonable price

Some music fans will want larger speakers with better audio quality ; Music service support is somewhat limited
