I purchased the Insignia Voice Smart Speaker with Google Assistant on sale from BestBuy for $39.99 (regular price $99) and I rate it a “Thumbs Up!” My reason for purchasing it was to replace the aging Chumby on my nightstand which I use as an alarm clock.
Insignia is BestBuy’s house brand and the Voice is comparable to Google Home with one additional trick up it’s sleeve – the Insignia includes an LED display for the time and outside temperature. Insignia makes two models – small (the one I have) and a larger model that includes a rechargeable battery that allows it to be portable.
