The original Google Home smart speaker is on sale for $35 (Update: Sold out)

That's a great price on an oldie but goodie.

The original Google Home may be a few years old, but it's still a great deal at $35.

Cheap things come to those who wait. Today you've got the chance to score a smart speaker for one of the lowest prices on record -- great if you're looking to expand an existing smart-home setup or launch a new one.

For a limited time, and while supplies last, Daily Steals has the Google Home Smart Speaker with Google Assistant for $34.99 with promo code CNETGHOME. This model originally sold for $129 and then spent a lot of time at $99.

It's hard to believe this thing dates back to 2016. But it's still a solid product, combining very good sound with the myriad benefits of Google Assistant. Is it better than, say, the current-gen Amazon Echo, or even Google's newer Nest Audio? Probably not, but those products run $100.

Actually, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the Google Nest Hub, a 7-inch smart display that's currently on sale at Best Buy for $70. It's twice the price, yes, but you're getting Google Assistant baked into a screen.

Of course, not everybody wants that. If it's just a speaker you're after, one that can stream tunes and podcasts, answer questions, control other smart gear and so on, this is pretty hard to beat.

Read CNET's Google Home review to learn more, keeping in mind it hasn't been updated since 2018. Google has no doubt rolled out some updates since then.
