Free Chromecast when you buy a Google Home Mini

If you're currently looking to invest in an affordable smart speaker, why not have Google's media streaming device thrown in as a freebie?

The Google Home Mini is a more-than-worthy rival to the undisputed king of compact smart speakers, the Amazon Echo Dot. It offers the most affordable method of getting Google Assistant into your home, and its sound quality is solid enough when you consider its diminutive size.

At only £50, then, it could be an ideal first step towards setting up a Google ecosystem in your home. But before you go ahead and buy one, consider that you can currently pick up a Google Chromecast (normally £30), free of charge when you buy the Home Mini from Currys PC World. That’s a saving of £30 on the two products (RRP £80), or a healthy 38% discount in total.

If you’ve never encountered a Google Chromecast, here’s a quick lowdown on how it works. The small device plugs straight into the back of your TV, and lets you cast popular catch-up and TV streaming services from your phone or tablet straight to the big screen.

It supports BBC iPlayer, Netflix, YouTube, Now TV, BT Sport and All4, as well as music streaming apps such as Spotify, Soundcloud and Google Play Music. Following its most recent update, we gave it a five-star review, labelling it “one of the best ways to make your TV smart.”

Like the Home Mini above, the Chromecast is a practical and affordable way of getting Google Assistant into your home. Purchase the two together with this deal, and you’ll be well on your way to building your very own smart home on the cheap this year.
