Photos of the new Google Nest Audio have appeared on the internet. This has not yet been officially announced by Google. However, an American seems to already have the new device at home and it is a big one: it weighs 1.2 kilograms.

That 1.2 kilograms is remarkable, because it makes the Google Nest Audio almost twice as heavy as the Google Home at 475 grams. On the other hand, the name audio implies that this speaker should also take the place of other speakers. Google Home is also a speaker, it is a somewhat smaller model that cannot directly produce the best sound quality.
That seems to be correct, because the man who already owns the device, Reddit user throwGnestaudio2, indicates that the audio quality has improved significantly. The speaker is equipped with a woofer and a tweeter. He even compares the sound to that of his Sonos speakers from IKEA. He did not get the new Nest by accident: he says he saw and bought it at a well-known retail chain. The device would cost around 100 euros.
Google Nest Audio seems to be linkable with another speaker of the same type. The device is also expected to be officially introduced by Google on September 30, along with a brand new Chromecast, Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G. We wrote about this Google Nest Audio before, namely when there official photos surfaced via Google. So more, next week.
