Google finally has an Amazon Echo Dot clone powered by Google Assistant

Google announced a second Home product that happens to be focused on audio quality instead of only being a home assistant.

The first Google Home was launched in November a year ago and sought to give Amazon Echo a tough fight. It is available for pre-order starting today. The search giant unveiled the Home Mini and Home Max as a part of its new connected home devices. The speaker will go on sale only in December.

Google has also updated its Google Assistant software for both the Google Home and Google Home Mini. Users can play music, make a phone call by simply clicking on the right earbud. First of, Google Assistant's voice recognition is optimized for kids' voices, while there are over 50 activities, like musical chairs, for kids. Furthermore, it can connect with Chromecast audio devices.

The Google Home Mini (known as codename "Joplin" until this point) will reportedly be available in chalk, charcoal and coral colours. It's an attractive device with a fabric-covered body. And it's easily capable of making itself heard in a medium-sized room. There are LED indicators on the top of the device. It charges with a Micro USB, and not with USB Type C. Google is throwing in a free 12-month subscription to YouTube Red for everyone picking up the Google Home Max. It packs much larger 4.5-inch subwoofers and custom 0.7-inch tweeters to deliver an exceptional sound experience. Let's take a look at the details of these smart speakers from here. The key features of Google Max is that it will automatically adjust to the ambience sound. The device is available in Chalk and Charcoal colors. One can also swipe forward or backward to control volume and tap to play or pause the music.

If the speakers aren't good enough, you can use a 3.5mm jack to output to speakers of your choosing. Google Studio Apartment, if you will. "Smart Sound", which is powered by Google's AI, tunes the speaker to optimize its sound balance for your particular room configuration.
