The Google Nest Hub Max smart home display has dropped to $199 at BuyDig, which is $30 off its regular price. You can also find it for that price at several other retailers, like Best Buy. However, you want to stick with BuyDig in this case because BuyDig is also throwing in a free Nest Mini 2nd-generation smart speaker. The Nest Mini is a $30 purchase on its own at other retailers like Best Buy, so this is $60 in savings at BuyDig compared to pretty much anywhere else.

Google Assistant gives you full voice control over either device. Control from your smartphone, too. Camera's auto-framing keeps you in view as you move around. Listen to music streaming apps, set calendar reminders, and more.

Read our review of the Nest Hub Max smart home display. We gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and a "The Best" badge. Russell Holly said this is "for people who are sold on the smart display experience from Google and want something a little more useful." He added, "you get a great speaker with a phenomenal display and a genuinely useful video chat experience."

The Nest Hub Max works with all things Nest and more than 5,000 smart devices. Use it to listen to music from your favorite streaming apps like YouTube Music, Spotify, Pandora, and more. Use it to watch recipe videos while you're working in the kitchen or make hands-free video calls. Give mom a call or just leave a video message for later.

Even if you're moving around, the Nest Hub Max will keep track of you. It has auto framing that can follow you and keep you in view so you can keep your call going while multi-tasking. Even if you're away from home, you can use the built-in Nest Cam. Just access it via your smartphone's app. You'll even get motion and sound alerts to let you know when something's going on.

Control your entire smart home from the Nest Hub Max, too. Whether that includes a thermostat, a smart lock, or thousands of other compatible devices.

The Nest Mini is good for that, too. You can use both devices for even more access to your smart home from any room in the house. The two devices work really well together that way.
