Larger speaker with a stylish appearance

Appearance Google Nest Audio

The Nest Audio is a bit larger than its predecessor. The Google Home had a speaker integrated at the bottom, while this new and more narrow version has a speaker that covers the entire length. The renewed and stylish appearance makes the Nest Audio more suitable for a modern interior. Like the Nest Mini, the speaker has no physical control buttons. You can pause music or adjust the volume with a voice command or by tapping the top of the device.

Improved sound quality

Sound quality Google Nest Audio

Thanks to the larger size of the speaker, the Nest Audio produces a fuller sound with better bass. Because the sound quality is better than that of its predecessor, this speaker is more suitable for slightly larger rooms. When you connect your Nest Audio to a second one, the two speakers provide stereo sound. In addition, the new speaker detects background noise in the room more accurately. It automatically adjusts the volume of music and the voice assistant based on this information.

Multi-room music system

With the Nest Audio, Google makes it easier to create groups at home that include other Nest speakers. This way, you can easily transfer media between 2 different speakers. If you have several speakers in the house, it's possible to create an intercom system. Your speakers will play your spoken messages in another room right away. In addition, the new speaker makes it easier to have audio calls with family and friends.

Faster response times

Response times Google Nest Audio

Thanks to the improved hardware, the Nest Audio responds to your requests that much faster. You'll notice this with smart home commands or standard commands in particular, like pausing music. In addition to this faster response time, the speaker is better able to distinguish voices and can tell the difference between you and your housemates. This is useful if you want to prevent your children from accidentally making purchases online, for example.
