Google Home Max Announced, Arrives This December for $399

Google Home Max Announced, Arrives This December for $399”

Max uses Smart Sound, powered by Google's AI.

Both the Google Home Mini and the Google Home Max come with the Google Assistant as you'd expect, and the exact same AI feature set as the original Home.

But if it's mainly voice-controlled shopping you're after, then the Echo Dot is still likely to be a better bet.

Google is expected to announce several new hardware products today, including a new version of the Pixel smartphone, a new Chromebook and a new Daydream virtual reality headset. Two Google Home Max speakers can be configured as the left and right speakers. You'll still be able to command the Home Mini with all of your favorite voice commands. It comes in Chalk (Black), Charcoal (Gray), and Coral (Red).

The top of the Home Mini enclosure is made out of a custom linen-like fabric, and has four LED lights underneath that indicate the Mini is listening. The device and the corresponding app has a shutter button for an easy click. Google Home Max also supports Google Cast and Bluetooth as well as direct input.

The Google Home Mini was unveiled at Google's big event today in San Francisco. The microphone on the device is also an improved version so that you can be heard giving instructions or asking questions even while music is playing. Furthermore, it can connect with Chromecast audio devices.

Users have already been able to place calls with Google Home, but the service has been limited to Google Voice or Project Fi numbers.

Google Home Mini also handles your personal life. Multiple user support keeps it from confusing your information with someone else's personal details.

Still, most of the three speakers' capabilities - such as hands-free calling, which Google announced is now rolling out to the United Kingdom (it's already available in the US) - are available in other smart speakers, like Amazon's Echo.

According to Google, the Home Mini will be will be available this month with a price set at USA $49. This feature is exactly what it sounds like - reminders and other things won't be played through Google Home, though timers and alarms will still go off at usual. Unfortunately, the interchangeable bases of the Google Home are gone.

The Home Mini looks very much like a small-sized Google Home device.

It's available for pre-order right away, and available in seven countries: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, UK and United States, including Japan - the new country that was announced at the Google event. Pre-ordering guarantees that you get one on launch day when supplies are usually scarce.
