  • It's ok, but...
    Reviewed by 2muchmark - October 26, 2020

    These have surprisingly good sound quality for their pint-size footprint, but if you want to use them for TV audio, you are out of luck. For some reason, Google Chromecast with Google TV will not play TV sound through Google Nest Audio speakers. A dumb workaround is to pair your TV with Google Nest speakers via Bluetooth, but Bluetooth latency adds about 1-2 second delay making audio out of sync with the video. Even after compensating by maxing-out the delay on my TV to 120ms, the audio was still lagging behind the video. Too bad!

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Not a Home Max...
    Reviewed by Anonymous reviewer - March 12, 2021

    But, I really love this new rendition of intelligent audio from Google/Nest. Officially since decommissioning the Home Max, Google suggests "pairing two together for an immersive sound experience"; however, IMO these speakers are not quite as powerful as my Home Max. I also miss the capability to to have the Aux-In for external audio sources. With that said, these speakers are more than capable of holding their own, amongst your current audio setup! I have mine paired together with other Nest speakers and they add a richness and immersion that indulges my audiophilia (©)_(©)Get them, pair them, group them and then "Hey Google, turn it up!"Cheers, Abe

  • Nest Audio
    Reviewed by Clear2Go - December 13, 2021

    I love the Nest speakers and the concept (I have 3 now, one mini and 2 Nest Audio) -- but they need to work on their compatibility, which Alexa (I have as well) does much better. It is often complicated to get Youtube (audio portion of video) to play on the speakers. I also added a friend to my home. They have Apple, yet we have challenges in Nest does not recognize their voice (despite several attempts, resets, etc.). Seeing and using configured groups is intermittent. Great product, but Google needs to focus on what the customer wants, give it to them and ignore the fact they are allowing their competitors some access.

  • Great for a main room
    Reviewed by Cassandra - July 10, 2021

    I bought two of these so I could pair them up and have pseudo-surround sound music play in my living room; the sound quality is quite nice for the price and they integrate perfectly with the rest of my Google smarthome products. I also love how they look! The design fits subtly into my decor. If I had a bigger place, I'd probably pick up a few more.The one flaw I have noticed is that these seem to be a little quieter than Google's other speakers; volume 50 on my Nest sounds quieter than volume 50 on my Mini. I think this may have something to do with the increased bass/better sound balancing, and they do still get nice and loud when turned up, but it's worth noting.

  • Great addition to my mesh system
    Reviewed by DFC72 - October 12, 2020

    Bought this as I wasn’t happy with the sound from out of the mesh speakers (very little bass and volume wasn’t sufficient for a noisy kitchen) This speakers has the beans and pretty good bass for a single speaker. Very happy with purchase.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
