Unboxing & Photos: Google Home Copper Metal Base

The Google Home voice-activated smart speaker has optional, colorful bases that are easily interchangeable, we're taking a look at the copper metal base to see how it looks in the home studio.

While the colorful bases for Google Home weren't available at launch, they did start shipping shortly after and are available (at least currently) exclusively from the Google Store.

Compared with the gray, fabric-covered base that comes with Google Home by default, this metal base quickly gives Google Home a fresh, high-end look. The metal bases are priced a bit higher, at $40, compared with the fabric-covered bases at $20, but the metal bases have an excellent build quality and are worth the price premium.
