Looking for an inexpensive entry point into the smart speaker, you’re not going to do better than the Google Home Mini. Order an Uber, a pizza or your favorite Spotify playlist, all with your voice. It also connects to more than a dozen smart home devices, from lights to locks and beyond. Have a Google Chromecast? You can use your Home Mini to stream HBO, Netflix, YouTube and a ton of other networks right to your TV via voice commands. For a mere $29, this may be the easiest recommendation on the list.
