What you need to know
- Google may be launching new Nest hardware this week.
- A tweet from the Google Nest Twitter account prepares watchers for "something special."
- Images of Google's upcoming Nest speaker made their way around the web last week.
Google is teasing an early surprise for Nest watchers coming this Monday. The company tweeted a tweet saying as much, alongside a video featuring comedian Fred Armisen reminding us that to take a deep breath while we wait.
It's possible that Google may be teasing its Nest-branded Google Home successor which made the rounds around the internet this week. The company itself also showed off the speaker in more detail, perhaps hinting that a launch was imminent.
The Google Home was an excellent smart speaker that had yet to have a successor, despite Google releasing a Nest-branded successor to the Home Mini already. The upcoming model is said to have more powerful speakers, a full cloth exterior, and a fun looking design. It's already been certified in both the U.S. and Japan, so that's more evidence pointing towards that as Monday's announcement.
Whatever it is, we won't have long to find out.
