With the announcement of multi-lingual support and Routines in Google Assistant rolling out to Aussies this morning, if you don’t have a Google Home already it may be time to get one. Reports are rolling in of the Google Home and Google Home Mini both getting reduced in price – and if you’re in the market, you can grab a bargain on the Chromecast Ultra.

The three devices are normally priced at $199 for the Google Home, $79 for the Google Home Mini or $99 for the Chromecast Ultra, so the savings are pretty decent – though the Chromecast Ultra seems to be almost permanently discounted these days (maybe a new model coming soon?).

The Google Store is currently selling the Google Home Mini for $55 – though you can opt for the exclusive Coral coloured Home Mini there, the Google Home for $199 – though you can get a special fathers day deal of a free Chromecast 2 and the Chromecast Ultra (which is finally back in stock) for $99.

I’ve listed all the Australian retailers I can think of with links to the sites, but feel free to link us to any others you can find.

Google Home MiniGoogle HomeGoogle Chromecast Ultra
JB Hifi$49$129$89
The Good Guys$48$128$89
Bing Lee$55$139$89
Harvey Norman$55$139$89
David Jones$55$139$89

It’s Fathers Day this Sunday so if you’re looking for a good gift at the last minute these would probably make an ideal one.

Thanks: Byron.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Is it possible to run Google Home and Google Home Mini on the same network?


Small typo – the Chromecast Ultra is only $89 at Officeworks, not $189.
