Google unveils Home Max for $399, coming to the U.S. in December

Google Home Gets New Night Mode, Refreshed App UI

You can then ask it all many of questions, commands and more, from controlling various smart home devices such as lighting, Chromecast and thermostats to playing games, getting the news and weather and finding out the answers to question.

Well, now instead of having to strain your lovely operatic voice to cajole them into moving faster, you Google can help instead. Aside from the Google Home we got back in 2016, we now also have the Google Home Mini, which offers all the features of the regular Google Home in a way smaller package, and the Google Home Max, which has full-blown stereo speakers for an enhanced listening experience. What sets it apart from Google Home, apart from a smaller size, is how it eschews music grade speakers in favour of portability and Google Assistant specific roles catered to a more personal setting, such as having on placed near the bedside where it can function as an alarm for example. And the speaker will play it.

Google is selling the Home Max for nearly US$400, US$50 more than the HomePod. The announcement of this device followed the announcement of the Google Home Mini - a miniature version of the Google Home. The Home Max also has a 3.5mm aux jack and a USB-C port aside from Bluetooth and wireless connectivity. It will be coming in two colour variants - Chalk and Charcoal, priced at $399. It means that if dad says, "How is the traffic to work?', the device will be able to recognize the user and it will analyze the traffic conditions to the user's workplace".

Russian firm spent $372k on Twitter ads

Google Home Max: What is Smart Sound? You can even find it when your device is in silent mode.

The Home Max also adjusts its volume based on the time of day and what's going on in its surroundings. Google also announced a content partnership with Disney. Google is throwing in a free 12-month subscription to YouTube Red for everyone picking up the Google Home Max. Google Home also offers calling capabilities in the United States, and it will launch that feature later this year in the UK.

The new Google Home Max arrives in December, and it costs $400. Can it win the battle against Apple HomePod?
