The smart speaker market got a bit more interesting when Google revealed its Amazon Echo rival, Google Home, early a year ago. The top portion of the circular pad is made out of a custom-thread fabric and has a touch interface on it with simply LED lights. The Google Home Max looks more like a Bluetooth speaker than a smart home assistant.
Alongside this diddy device is a new bigger speaker called the Home Max.
Pixelbook, priced at $999, is the first laptop powered by Google Assistant and will support Snap Inc's Snapchat, the company said. Google is also debuting new family-friendly experiences for the Google Assistant, such as additional trivia options geared toward children. As proof, they recently expanded their Google Home lineup by introducing two new additions - the Home Mini and Home Max.
All three Home speakers include Voice Match, which identifies different individuals in the household, so it can serve personalized answers (like traffic, Spotify playlists from certain accounts, and calendars). So, you can choose that suits your home.
The Home Max, which comes in chocolate and charcoal colors, is available in the United States at launch and will come to more countries in 2018. It comes in a trio of colors, including charcoal, gray, and coral, and retails for a pretty reasonable $49. Google Assistant can voice control over 1000+ products. It can also sync this audio with other Chromecast devices located on the same network. Google also announced a content partnership with Disney. Just say "Hey Google, broadcast it's time to leave for soccer practice!" and it'll play on the other Google Home devices around the house. Except for its smaller, curvier design and fabric casing, all the functionalities remain similar to that of the Google Home smart speaker. It'll be available on major offline retainers from October 19. The full-sized Google Home costs £129, comparatively.
