The best Google deals for Black Friday 2018
It may be a couple of years old now, but the Google Home is a great smart speaker thanks to its compact and attractive design, good sound quality, and of course the Google Assistant.

Google Home Hub
The latest addition to Google's smart home portfolio, the Home Hub is what happens when you take a Home and add a 7-inch touchscreen. The result is a device which can act like the central command hub for your entire smart home, making it easy to switch devices (or whole rooms) on and off with a tap or a voice command.
The Home Hub works great in the kitchen, where it can show recipe instructions as you cook, and voice control means you won't be smearing food all over the display.

Google Home Mini
The Home Mini is the cheapest and smallest Google smart speaker. It has the same access to the Google Assistant and can be connected to a larger speaker via Bluetooth. You should see the Home Mini as Google's answer to the equally cheap Amazon Echo Dot.

- Google Home Mini and Chromecast bundle:
Was $74, now $45
The Chromecast is a simple way to make a regular TV smarter. Just plug it into an HDMI port, connect to your Wi-Fi, and your TV now has access to Netflix, YouTube, Spotify and many other streaming services.
You can control the Chromecast with your phone, or with voice commands if you also have a Google Home smart speaker. Content can be cast from your phone, making it easy to put YouTube videos on the big screen for everyone to see.
Was $35, now $25
This is just like the regular Chromecast, but is capable of streaming Ultra HD content to your TV. Also known as 4K, this footage has four times the resolution of regular HD and can be found on Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime Video.
Was $69, now $49
Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL
Google's latest smartphones are serious rivals to the iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy Note 9. They have industry-leading cameras, the Google Assistant, and high quality displays which are much-improved over their predecessors.
