Apple and Google Introduce Sleek New Smart Home Products

Meet the HomePod Mini and Google Nest Thermostat.

Apple and Google, tech world competitors, can seem to agree on one thing: minimalism. The two companies have announced sleek new smart home products, the Apple HomePod Mini and Google Nest Thermostat.

The announcement of the iPhone 12 at Apple’s October event overshadowed the debut of several noteworthy products including its latest speaker, the HomePod Mini. Replacing the HomePod’s original cylindrical design with a spherical shape, the Mini measures at only 3.3 inches tall. Boasting a touch screen and Siri compatibility, the HomePod Mini can seamlessly sync with other Apple products including the iPhone and iPad.

From Google, the updated Nest Thermostat does away with the device’s manual scroll wheel and replaces it with a touch-sensitive strip. Its simple circular design features a mirrored face while new capabilities include an energy-saving Eco Mode, scheduling system and voice control.

Apple’s HomePod Mini retails for $99 USD at the Apple website. The Google Nest Thermostat prices at $129 USD, available at Google’s website.
