Google is a leader in the Australian smart home market, with connected hardware and software complementing each other day after day. It’s a real treat for users who are thinking about getting their connected home started when specials come up and Google is doing just that.

Through retail (the usual bricks and mortar stores) as well as online channels — including the Google Store — you’ll find that the Google Nest Mini and Chromecast are available for an $89.00 bundle cost. That makes the Chromecast an effectively $10.00 versus the normal $59.00 cost.

At that cost, it’s an excellent start to a connected home or even grab the bundle, use one device for yourself and hold onto the other since Christmas isn’t that far away. Either way, you look at it, saving $49.00 on a bundle of this value is a significant saving.
