Google’s upcoming Nest smart speaker, which the company teased last week, could debut today. The search giant is teasing “something special” for Monday and it is likely to be that smart speaker covered in cloth mesh. The Nest-branded smart speaker first appeared on the website of a Japanese retailer. In typical Google fashion, the company officially teased this upcoming product with an official image and a short teaser video. Now, the company has revealed the launch date for this smart speaker without sharing any additional information.

In the US, Google might actually start taking orders for the device. In addition to this smart speaker, Google might announce more Nest products but chances of that look slim. As Android Police notes in its article, the search giant announced the original Google Home smart speaker back in 2016. The smart speaker was reportedly marked as “No longer available” on Google Home Store in May. The speaker has gone out of stock in most of the retailers as well.

The smart speaker market has stayed rather quiet during this pandemic. While millions of people stay inside their home, content consumption has gone up in a big way. However, it is not clear whether use of smart speakers and digital assistants powering them has seen a similar spike in usage. While Amazon Echo speakers powered by Alexa are leading the way, Google is catching up fast. It has consistently built more powerful audio experience with its Nest smart home speakers. The next model might well be the best yet in terms of audio performance and intelligence.
