There is a lot we know about fabric-coated devices, and a lot more we still have to find out – like how Nest Audio actually lives up to the hype and how it compares. (If Whatever the indications, this Alexa-killer can hope for Google.)

What has Google Home improved before?
The new Nest Audio replaces the Google Home‘s single 2-inch speaker with a 3-inch woofer with bass and a three-quarter-inch tweeter with high notes. There is also a quad-core processor instead of the original Google Home’s dual-core processor, which can speed up response times and help create richer sound.
Like last year’s updated Nest Mini ($ 50 Best Buy), Nest Audio has a dedicated machine learning chip, which works on some of the processing already handled in Google’s cloud-based data centers (translation: faster responses, better privacy).
Also, rather than looking like an air freshener or a miniature nuclear power plant, Nest Audio is a bit more loaf-like, which I personally find as an improvement.
