Smart home devices are slowing taking over our homes, with Google Home products surely one of the most popular tech products of the year. But when they make life this easy, how can we resist?
If you’re looking to buy one, prices often fall at various points throughout the year, with Christmas usually marking one of the moments where a big sale begins.
But with the devices sold at so many different retailers, prices can vary a lot. So we’ve rounded up the very best places to buy each Google Home device below.
Google has a four-piece strong selection of smart home devices: the Google Home, the Google Home Mini, the Google Home Max, and the Google Home Hub, which has its own screen.
Thinking about opting for Amazon instead? We’ve got the same price comparison for Amazon’s Echo range, which offer an almost identical service when it comes to music’s audio quality. However, if you’re willing to spend that little bit extra on a smart speaker, the newer Google Home Max is right up there in terms of music quality if you’re looking to feel every beat of a song.
At the minute, the cheapest place to get your hands on the Google Home mini (the cheapest device of the lot) is AO.com, who have the speaker for £29 – a big difference to its usual £49 price tag.

Cheapest Google Home mini
Ask it to play music, set alarms, tell you the latest news, weather and even jokes, or link it up to your other smart home products so you can turn the lights on with only your voice.
While it may be the cheapest option of the lot, never underestimate the power of a small but mighty device.
Cheapest Google Home Hub
Retailing at £139, the Google Home Hub is much cheaper than the new version of the Amazon Echo Show (and that’s before the discount).
With full YouTube support (ideal for watching music video, trailers, cooking videos), it also links up to all your other smart home devices so you can control your Nest or lightbulbs from an easy-to-use screen.
The only thing it doesn’t have? A camera. So if you want to do any voice calling, you may want to opt for a Lenovo Show instead, which works alongside the Google Assistant.
Cheapest Google Home Smart Speaker
The big differences between the usual Google Home and the mini is that the larger option comes with touch controls on top to easily turn down the volume, as well as louder – and better – sound thanks to the fact it’s just a much bigger speaker.
Seeing as it’s currently so cheap, the £79 price tag makes more financial sense than a £25 smart device paired with a £50 bluetooth speaker.
Cheapest Google Home Max 2
This is Google’s insane big-size speaker – but it does also come at a hefty price. Providing premium quality audio for an entire room in a compact system, complete with Google’s beautiful minimalist design.
Not convinced by its sound capabilities? Even if you live in a small home, the speaker can automatically tweak equalizer settings to ensure it’s pushing out the very best sound depending on the layout of the setting in front of it, all thanks to its internal microphones.
