Google unveils Home Max smart speaker

Posted October 05, 2017

Everything you can do with standard Google Home, you can do with the Home Mini. Amazon also has a kid-friendly account for the echo line.

Google is selling the Home Max for nearly US$400, US$50 more than the HomePod. We'll let you know when an exact date is confirmed. The speaker is covered nearly entirely in fabric dyed in chalk (light gray), coral (red), and charcoal (darker gray) colors.

With the Home Mini, Google also debuts Voice Models. The speaker has dual 4.5-inch woofers for better bass performance.

In common with the other devices in the Google Home line-up the Google Assistant is built-in, and this smart speaker supports multi-room audio so you can hook up several together. It will also change the volume levels based on the ambient noise.

The front of the Max is covered in the same fabric as the Home Mini, though the coral color will not be available. It sounds impressive in theory and doesn't disappoint in practice, though it remains to be seen how the speaker's automatic reconfiguration systems will perform in environments that are less controlled than Google's convention venues. The device is equipped with 4.5-inch woofers that the company claims are of the high-excursion variety and features a rigid case structure specifically created to maintain the compositional integrity of the audio it produces. It will go on sale in December, priced at £399. Google Pixel Buds Google Pixel Buds are the search giant's first ever wireless earphones. Of course, you'll need to be pretty serious about your home audio setup to drop $800 on a pair of these speakers. They come in a pocket-sized charging case, which also charges the earphones. In the United States, pre-orders start today, with instore availability from 19 October. Google Clips Google Clips is a lightweight, hands-free camera.
