Black Friday speaker deals: smart solutions
When it comes to smart speakers, it can sometimes be confusing as to which ecosystem is best. Apple, Google, and Amazon voice assistants dominate the market, with some speaker makers like Sonos integrating several of them.
At the end of the day, most smart speaker ecosystems will deliver a similar experience, but getting started is often the hard part. If a low price is likely to influence your decision, Walmart’s upcoming Nest Mini 2 offer shouldn’t be overlooked. A mere $19 lets you be able to equip a room with Google Assistant while also getting the latest Nest Mini device. You’ll find several more options below.
- Echo Dot 3: $19 (Reg. $30) | Belk
- Echo Dot 4: $29 (Reg. $50) | Amazon
- Echo Show 5: $45 (Reg. $90) | Meijer
- Nest Mini: $19 (Reg. $49) | Walmart

Without question there are quite a few notable Black Friday speaker deals to consider this year. Some will likely be disappointed that HomePod mini has yet to be officially discounted, but don’t lose hope, as there’s always a chance at least one last-minute deal could show up next week.
