Droid Turf is back with yet another tech giveaway for the month of June! The prize is a Google Chromecast Audio dongle! The giveaway will run for merely a month’s time before officially closing on July 1st.
Recently, a banner promoting the arrival of audiobooks appeared on Google’s Play Store. 9to5Google caught a screenshot of it and believes Google was teasing audiobooks for its Play Store. The banner was displayed in front of users on both the Play Store app as well as the Play Store on web. An empty audiobooks section remains up under ‘Google Play Books,’ but the banner is no longer present.
Today is indeed Amazon Prime Day. Some Amazon products including Echo, Echo Show, Echo Look, Echo Dot, and Fire TV Stick are being offered at a discounted price. Which is perhaps the reason Google has felt the need to chime in and lower the price that buys a Google Home or Chromecast.
In honor of perhaps the greatest Super Bowl of all time, a handful of Google products are on sale across a several retailers. Through February 25, one can save on a Google Home speaker, interchangeable Google Home bases and Chromecast products including Chromecast Ultra and Chromecast Audio.
Google Cast was the technology hidden inside some speakers, TV’s and audio devices. It allowed users to “cast” media such as audio and/or video over-the-air to their Google Cast equipped gear. This is not to be confused with a Google Chromecast, which is a streaming dongle by Google supporting similar functionality.
Google is giving Chromecast owners their first movie rental for 75% off. That’s right 75% off!
Thought the deals were over? Think again. Today is Cyber Monday, which will mark the end to most early bird holiday sales. Google held back with its Black Friday weekend promotion, not announcing any discounts too spectacular beyond the $29 Google Home Mini, but that’s because the search giant was saving something for today.
It’s 2017. People shop in a variety of ways. With Black Friday weekend just beginning, and major brands preparing big Cyber Monday discounts, they’ll make sure that deals are available over the internet.
