A range of voice-controlled smart speakers with a built-in assistant. These speakers facilitate listening to music, podcasts, radio stations, and audiobooks. You can talk to Google to get answers to the questions you want including the latest on the weather, traffic updates, finance, sports news, shop opening hours and so on. You can also set timers and create a shopping list and add items to it. As Google Nest speakers are smart devices, they can be used to control other connected accessories, like heating controls and lights. If buying for this purpose it is recommended that you do a full comparison as there are a range of other smart speakers, such as Amazon Alexa, on the market and you need to choose the one best suited to your accessories. Note: Google Nest is optimised for selected music and audio services so some subscriptions/payments may be required.
