Google Home Max makes the Assistant blast music

Amazon Floods Smart Home Market with a Total of 8 Echo Products

Google unraveled two new versions of the Google Home speakers: The Mini & The Max on Wednesday.

Google has introduced the newest members of the Google Home family, the Google Home Mini, and Google Home Max at an event in San Francisco. Otherwise, the Google Home Max looks like the better choice of standalone smart speaker, even if it costs a little more. It can adjust the sound dynamically in relation to its position in the room and tune to the ideal sound setting within seconds. Early testers say it's adept at picking up on voice commands while music plays, and a few simple taps on the device itself (it does have a mute button) can control most of its audio playback.

The Google Home Mini comes in Coral, Chalk, and Charcoal colour options.

All Google Home products now use Voice Match, which uses different voice factors to bring personal help to each individual member of the house.

When the Giants weren't running the ball well, they were connecting on short passes that helped move the chains. The Giants waited until they really needed it to spring their most creative offensive play-call of the season.

To tempt Google Home users into upgrading to the Google Home Max, Google is also throwing in a year of YouTube Red to everyone who buys one. This means that no matter where the speaker is placed, the sound will be close to what the producers intended when the track was put together in a studio.

The Google Home Mini appears dialed in to take the fight directly against Amazon's ubiquitous Echo Dot device.

The Google Home Mini is now open for pre-orders and will retail at $49. It sports dual 4.5-inch high-excursion woofers and custom-made 0.7-inch tweeters.

The original Google Home is priced at $129. It will arrive on October 19. It also supports touch gestures to control the audio. Google Home Max will be available in December for $399 - just in time to compete with Apple's new HomePod. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, Google claims the speaker can automatically adjust its output to its surroundings in a matter of seconds. Home Max will be available in Chalk (white) and Charcoal (grayish black).
