When your living space is filled to the brim with all these newfangled smart devices and gadgets, it’s worth doing your research to find a great smart home hub that’ll serve as your control center.
The thing is, the market is pretty over-saturated at the moment. How do you sift through the myriad of smart home options without feeling, well, dumb?
Here’s a deal that’ll make your decision way easier: Walmart is having a sale on the Google Home Mini, a small-but-mighty smart home assistant with a remarkably compact design. For a limited time, you can get a pair of them for less than $60, which is like getting two for the price of one.
Available in the light gray Chalk finish, the pebble-shaped Google Home Mini comes equipped with the Google Assistant, which works with more than 1,000 other smart devices from over 150 well-known brands. Just say the phrase “Hey, Google,” followed by a command, and you can have it connect to compatible devices to adjust your home’s temperature, alarms, lighting, and more.
You can also ask the Google Home Mini personalized questions — “Hey Google, when is my date tomorrow?” — and with the help of voice recognition technology, it’ll check your schedule, travel information, and the like to provide an accurate answer.
With a pair of these little guys inside your abode, you’ll take full advantage of the Google Assistant’s functionality and convenience — like playing music in different rooms, or broadcasting a message to your partner while they’re on the other end of your apartment. (Guess that cliché holds up: Two is *always* better than one.)
A single Google Home Mini costs $49, but you can get a pair at Walmart for only $58 — a savings of 40%.
