Google unveils Home Max for $399, coming to the United States in December

Google Pixelbook features leaked ahead of launch, Home Mini speaker listed online

The Google Home Mini can also connect wirelessly to any Chromecast Audio compatible speaker, so that you can easily set up a multi-room audio around your house. Mini is available in three color versions, including Chalk, Charcoal and Coral for United States dollars 49.

You can say the Google Home Max is the flagship Home speaker.

In the center, there are four white lights that note when the Home Mini is listening or responding.

The company also unveiled Home Max, a rectangular, higher audio-quality version of Google Home, aimed directly at the market pondering buying Apple's forthcoming HomePod speaker. A larger version of its flagship Google Home speaker, Google Home Max was created to emphasize sound quality, like Apple's aapl rival HomePod web-connected speaker. Google has thought of the same thing and added two new variants of Google Home in the form of Google Home Mini and Google Home Max. With over 50 million voice samples in hundreds of different environments, Google is confident that they have the best voice assistant in the world. The device, just as you'd expect, lets you talk to Google Assistant by shouting "Ok, Google" and it will retail at $49 with pre-orders starting from today. With a price tag like that, it's competing directly with Amazon's second-generation Echo Dot.

The Home Max tech is headlined by two 4.5-inch woofers.

Now, Google also shared some availability information when it comes to this smart speaker. It also supports Bluetooth, Google Cast and has a headphone jack for connecting directly to your phone.

Hands-free calling "later this year", bringing it into line with Amazon which launched the feature this year. In the United States, pre-orders start today, with instore availability from 19 October.

And if the deal wasn't sweet enough yet, for your $399 (which admittedly is a very steep price in comparison to competitors) you will also receive 12 months of YouTube Red, meaning ad free streaming and background playback.
