I have a google home mini (still in box).
Would this work with it?
Asking because it says "US VERSION"

I have this and yes it does work with Google Home... I don't recall being super easy setup, but it's okay... I can say "OK Google, turn on living room lights" and it will turn on...

tempted to get some more of these to turn on Christmas lights etc...

Love those plugs, but this may not be the best deal to get them. Last year towards the Christmas I got this 2-pack at Best Buy @ $35 (and if memory doesn't mislead me they were available on Amazon at the same time for a similar price - but I may be wrong about this).
So it may be worth waiting another week or two.

If you want the plugs today. Its also this price at BestBuy.

I agree it's a great device!
The only thing I know for sure... is that I know nothing.

On the weekend i bought the two pack for this price at bestbuy, and when you buy a smart plug a google home mini was only $30.
As for using it with the google home mini, it was pretty easy.
first set up the switch normally with the "Kasa Smart" app(make account, detect the switch with the app, it connects, you tell it your wifi info, tadaaa done)
second, set up your google assistant account and go to settings > home > Add... > set up device > then add your Kasa account.
after that i think your plugs will be added. the process is pretty straight forward once you do it once, and takes less than 10 minutes from start to end the first time.
i believe every smart google assistant device will be the same. make an account with the initial app/product, connect that account to google assistant and you're done.

Got mine last year for $19.99. they work well with Google home. You have to set them up with Kasa app first then add Kasa as a service to your Google home through the Google Home app. You can name the device whatever you want. So mine is just called lamp because I didn't want to save "living room lamp" everytime.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

I can't verify this yet, but I would guess that "US version" refers to the Wi-Fi standards used in the device. With our Unifi access points, the "US" release is hard-wired to only permit US-spec Wi-Fi channels (2.4GHz 2-11) and power levels whereas the regular version allows you to choose your country's particular specifications. While there are some minor differences between Canada and the US, for the purposes of a light switch they're not significant.

I know you need a time machine for the deal but I remember when Best Buy had it for $35 2017 Black Friday.

Never seen that price again.

Instead my other plugs are the Costco 2 for $25 deal. Works just as good.
