Interested in buying a Google Home? Why not consider the Insignia Voice Smart Portable Speaker instead? For a limited time, you can save up to $60 on the device.
The Insignia Voice Smart Speaker comes with the Google Assistant built-in. Thus, it should have all of the voice command capabilities of the Google Home. One way the Voice Smart one-ups the Google Home is its built-in alarm clock. This is a much-appreciated feature which provides a reliable use case for the device.
The Voice Smart also features a built-in battery that can support up to five hours of audio playback. This allows you to use the device as a portable speaker. I can see myself temporarily moving the speaker to the kitchen where I can play music, set cooking timers, or get recipes from Google. I could then return the speaker to my nightstand, listen to music as I fall asleep, and wake up with the alarm in the morning.
Conceivably, the built-in battery can serve as a battery backup for the alarm clock. Someone has to test this scenario to see if it actually works. Perhaps I will test this feature myself…
If the microphone and audio are a good as the Google Home, the Insignia Voice Smart Speaker might be the smart speaker to beat! The best thing about the Voice Smart Speaker is its current price. For a limited time, you can get one for $69.99 without the battery and $89.99 with the battery. This price won’t last long. Get one now!
