The “something special” teased by Google over the weekend is a month-long series of deals. Fred Armisen is the face of the Google Store Daily Special with various skits showing off various Assistant devices and how they are helpful.
For the next month, there will be a “Daily Special” on a Made by Google product in the US Google Store. The company is partnering with Fred Armisen of Saturday Night Live, Portlandia, and Documentary Now! fame. The comedian plays all the characters in this series with funny voices, costumes, and elaborate wigs. Each product has an angle with the Nest Mini being called “The Nest Meditation Guru.”
We’ll be keeping a running list of all the deals, so be sure to follow and bookmark this page:
Monday, July 13: Nest Mini
The first Daily Special on the Google Store is $20 off a Nest Mini 2-pack. Normally $98, it will cost $78 until Sunday, July 19 at 11:59 p.m. PT. As of midnight Pacific, the deal can be manually purchased by adding two to your cart, and it’s also listed on the Mini’s product page with a special URL:
Announced at Made by Google 2019, this is the company’s newest Nest product. It looks identical to the first-generation, but touts 2x stronger bass from a 40 mm driver and “improved voice recognition” with 3 far-field microphones. It’s powered by a quad-core 64-bit ARM CPU at 1.4 GHz and a “high-performance ML hardware engine” for more on-device processing.
As you approach, the LEDs automatically turn on to show the volume, while the Nest Mini can be mounted on the wall with an integrated mount/groove on the underside. As part of an environmental push, the fabric cover — available in Chalk (gray), Sky (Blue), Coral (orange), and Charcoal (black) — is made of recycled plastic bottles.
