Google just launched Nest Audio, the successor to the popular Google Home in India along with the Pixel 4a, as it had promised when it was introduced earlier this month. It has 50% stronger bass and is 75% louder compared to the original Google Home, thanks to 19mm tweeter and a 75mm mid-woofer that’s squeezed inside the enclosure that is made from 70% recycled plastic.
The design of the Nest Audio has changed compared to the Google Home with a slim profile. Google says that it has optimized the grill, fabric and materials for a distortion-free audio and the custom-designed tweeter allows each musical detail to come through. The ‘Media EQ’ feature of the Nest Audio enables it to automatically tune itself to whatever a user is listening to.
Further, there are 3 far-field microphones with a physical microphone mute switch and just like the original Google Home, there are touch controls for adjusting the volume. It is powered by a 1.8GHz Quad-Core Cortex-A53 processor and features a High-performance ML hardware engine, supports Dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 5.0, and has built-in Chromecast.
The Google Nest Audio comes in Chalk and Charcoal colours is priced at an MRP of Rs. 7999, but it will be available at a special launch price of Rs. 6999 when it goes on sale on Flipkart during Big Billion Days Sale from October 16th. It will also be available at retail outlets such as Reliance Retail and Tata Cliq soon.
