When compared to the original Google Home, the Google Nest Audio speaker is reported to have equipped with 50% stronger bass and 75% louder sound.

Google has stated that it spent over 500 hrs in tuning to produce a clear sound speaker. It has made use of the fabric and other speaker materials in such a way for optimum performance. The smart speaker uses a media EQ feature. This will adjust the audio based on your content type. It will also adjust the sound of the content based on your atmospheric noise. The speaker allows stream transfer from one Google Home or Nest speaker to another. It also offers multi-room control.
The Nest Audio speaker uses a dedicated ML chip, which was used in Nest Mini last year. Just like the Nest Mini, the Nest Audio speaker is also made of sustainable fabric design.
