If you have been waiting to snap up a Google Pixel XL, this might be the time to make that move. The Google Store in the US is offering customers a way to get the Google Home connected speaker for free with the purchase of its 5.5-inch Pixel XL.
Google Home vs Amazon Echo vs Apple HomePod
Normally Google Home costs $129 on its own, so this new bundle offer with the Pixel XL is a great deal all around. The terms of the deal state this bundle will be offered while supplies lasts, so it’s possible that there are only a limited number of Home speakers available for this free offer with the Pixel XL.
Don’t want the bigger Pixel XL? If you’re open to signing up for Project Fi, you can get this same deal with either size Pixel phone. Google says the Project Fi deal will run until July 29.
Google has some major plans to update Google Home with a number of new features later this summer. That includes allowing owners to make outgoing hands-free voice calls to any landline or mobile phone number in the US or Canada, for free. The speaker will also be able to give time-sensitive notifications for events such as meetings, traffic or the current status of a flight with upcoming updates, along with adding support for more streaming audio services like Spotify, SoundCloud and Deezer.
