The Best Google and Nest Device Deals Are on Sale Now

To combat Amazon's Prime Day, Google is discounting its best devices.

The discount fest that is Amazon Prime Day starts Monday, July 15, and a lot of people will probably pick up a discounted Amazon Device, like the retailer's Echo speakers, equipped with its Alexa Voice Assistant.

Google isn't thrilled with that. It would rather you purchase one of its Google Assistant devices instead. To sway you, Google is hosting its own mini Prime Day.

We here at WIRED wish you the best no matter which ecosystem you choose. (And honestly, you're fine if you choose none at all!) But from a usability standpoint, we prefer Google Assistant to Alexa. Google answers common questions more capably, and its setup process is simpler and friendlier for any third-party devices you may want to add to your smart home.

Many Google devices are on sale, but these are our favorites. We're primarily linking to Walmart, but these deals are also available from Google's own store and Best Buy.

The Google Home Max is big and loud.


The Nest Secure Alarm System is also $100 off, though we have not tested it enough to give a recommendation.
