Google Black Friday deals have officially landed. The tech giant's online store is now stuffed with discounts on its own-brand tech, including a very generous 50 per cent off the Google Nest Mini (opens in new tab) smart speaker. 

We were fans of the Nest Mini at £49, so now that it's £24 consider us huge fans. It's Google's budget smart speaker, and is a stylish and affordable way to inject Google Assistant into your home.

The Google Next Mini comes with Google Assistant onboard, so you can control it with your voice and get answers to a growing number of commands. You can pair it with other Home speakers for a multi-room set-up. Now half price, it's a tempting prospect.

Want something beefier? The Google Home Max, which features a pair of 4.5in woofers, has been slashed from £299 to £199 (opens in new tab). That's a chunky £100 discount. It's also worth remembering that this speaker debuted at £399 when it arrived in the UK back in 2018. So that makes it half price... sort of.

You can also bag a more modest £20 off the brand-new Google Nest Audio, which is usually £90. It's not the best-sounding speaker we've tested, but it's well made, easy to operate and answers every request with finesse. At £70 (opens in new tab), it's a bit of a bargain.

The Home Max hit UK shelves priced at £399, so this is quite the bargain. It promises big, bold sound and has a feature called Smart Sound, which can automatically tune the audio to suit your listening environment.

Not to be left out, the Nest Hub Max is also £50 off (opens in new tab). It's a smart speaker with a 10-inch screen, HD camera and facial recognition, and now both the 'Chalk' and 'Charcoal' versions are just £169 (opens in new tab).

The regular Nest Hub – without the camera – has also had the Black Friday treatment. Google has reduced all four colours from £80 to only £60 (opens in new tab).

Fancy a new phone instead (or indeed as well as)? There's currently £30 off (opens in new tab) the 2020-launched Google Pixel 4a – it was £349, but is now £319 (opens in new tab). We've not reviewed this near-flagship handset, but the 4a boasts a faster chip and better camera than the Pixel 4, which we rated four stars.

Google Pixel 4a £349 £319 at Google Store (opens in new tab)
The Google Pixel 4a promises slick Google Assistant integration, a sleek Android interface, and a seriously-impressive photography experience from its rear camera. This deal gets you £30 off and a free three month trial of YouTube Premium.  

It's well worth browsing the Google Black Friday deals (opens in new tab) virtual storefront for Black Friday bargains, but there are plenty more deals to be had elsewhere, including Amazon Black Friday deals on everything from 4K TVs to wireless headphones.
