Even just a few years ago, the idea of a fully connected smart-home sounded like something from The Jetsons — a good idea for a family in the future. And yet in 2022, smart features and devices are standard in most American homes. One of the easiest ways to upgrade your system is with a smart speaker. While the Google Nest Mini typically retails for $49, right now the charcoal color is available for just $30 at Walmart.
This little device can make your whole house "smart" with voice-activated commands to dim the lights, turn up the volume and pause the TV, as well as play music or ask about the weather.
This device is small, but mighty, and has over 4,200 five-star reviews on Walmart. With a simple "Hey Google" command, a world of options are at your disposal. The Nest Mini can share weather and traffic updates, tell you the news or lay out your daily schedule, set a timer or even tell a joke. The speaker can connect to YouTube Music, Spotify and other apps to play songs. You can also connect this handy device to adjust the thermostat and control the lights throughout your home. The super small size is inconspicuous in any room and fits easily on a shelf or countertop.
If the low price has caught your attention, these Walmart reviews should seal the deal. "I love the size of it and that it's portable. The speaker is small, maybe the size of a White Castle hamburger.... The speakers have a clear sound. It works with all the smart items in your home. I enjoy how I can tell it to turn the TV on and off. It can't change the channels, though. It can make phone calls for you and put things on your shopping list in your phone. I can ask Google Nest 'What's the weather', how to spell a word, information about different subjects, do a math problem etc.," explained one happy customer.
Another called it the "best buy I've made in years," adding: "These things are aaaaaawesome!!! It's like having my own personal butler around. Except there's nobody invading my space. They work great. I use them to turn on my Rokus and Spotify playlists, etc. Tell them to put things on my shopping list. You can use them to make phone calls, even. I could go on, but I'd fill this page. Just buy one. Or two, like I did! One for each end of the house."
