Google have announced new incarnations of two of their coolest gadgets, Nest Audio and Chromecast with Google TV.

Listening to your favourite tunes is easier than ever with the new Google Nest Audio. Those sounds that you’ll hear will be better than ever, too, as the new Nest Audio is 75% louder than the original Google Home, with 50% stronger bass.

Being in the Google ecosystem, naturally calling up your favourite tunes, or receiving curated sounds is as easy as ever. Plus, if you wish to check the news or weather or pretty much anything, it’s just a “Hey Google…” away.

If you have more than one Google speaker dotted about your home, you can pump your music through all of them, or even have it follow you with a simple voice command. It can even function as an intercom – “Oi, dinner’s ready!”

The 2020 incarnation of Google Nest Audio will be available in black or chalk, and releases on October 15. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
