Google's latest smart speaker is for listening to music

Google announced a new audio device at yesterday's Pixel event. In addition to the new smartphones, and Chromecast with Google TV, the company introduced the new Nest Audio.
This is the company's latest smart speaker that is aimed at people who want a great listening experience from their smart speaker. The single speaker comes with a 19 mm tweeter and a 75 mm woofer.

Unlike many of the smart speakers aimed toward Assistant functionality, this one doesn't have a 360 degree audio but instead is projected clearly to the front allowing better experience when listening to music in the designated area.

You can also combine multiple speakers to an array or room configuration like with Sonos.

As you might imagine the speaker works great with YouTube Music and Google has some celebrities, including Selena Gomez, demoing it with their own music service.



Nest Audio will be available on October 5 for $99.
