The best Google Assistant devices that aren’t speakers
A smart speaker is so 2017. With exceptional innovation with every product release, smart assistants are popping up in more places than speakers. And, Google’s voice assistant is gaining speed as one of the most popular systems.
- What is Google Assisant? Google’s smart virtual voice assistant that can respond to questions and commands as well as help you manage your other smart home devices.
- Which Google Assistant speakers are the best? Harman Kardon makes a great one that’s a little on the pricey side. The Citation ONE is more wallet-friendly.
- Where can I find more Google Assistant devices? We have a category full of Google Assistant devices as well as one for Amazon Alexa.
Although it seems like Amazon Alexa is just about everywhere these days (you’re not wrong), Google Assistant is, too. Many brands add both smart assistant integrations at once, making them convenient for every user. Here are some of the best Google Assistant devices we could find.

Smart and savvy, this sophisticated light switch makes your lighting requirements a priority. Analyzing the light in the room, Orro makes lighting decisions based on your preferences.

Levi’s x Google Jacquard Commuter Trucker Jacket
One of the first mainstream wearables, the Levi’s x Google jean jacket takes your style to all new levels. Along the sleeve is the built-in brain of Google.
