Google introduces Home Max as the 'Max' counterpart to Home Mini smart speaker with maximum sound

If the cute new Google Home Mini is too, well, mini for you, then here's Home Max, a larger version of the Google's smart speaker. 

The Home Max features the dual 4.5-inch woofers and custom 0.7” tweeters covered by fabric, with far-field microphones that are supposedly aimed to hear your queries even when the music is playing. 

This new machine learning feature called Smart Sound is supposed to tune the Home Max automatically for the room to create the best acoustics and adjusting for the audio you’re listening to such as songs, podcasts or phone calls. And just like the Google Home and Home Mini, the Home Max lets you activate Google Assistant with your voice.

The Home Max can be placed either vertically or horizontally, and it uses magnetic stands so you can easily change them around. You can also pair the two of them to create stereo sound.

The Home Max isn’t just a wireless speaker with the ability to link up to Chromecast speakers. It also connects via a 3.5mm audio jack, as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The Home Max will be available in chalk and charcoal colors. It will be available in the market for US$399 and is set to be launched in December in the US, with more countries slated by the next year.
