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

At its Made By Google event on Wednesday, Google surprised tech onlookers by rolling out a powerful new music speaker, powered by Google's voice assistant: Google Home Max.

The demo area at the Google launch was very noisy, so it was hard for us to properly assess the quality of the speaker but we'd say -at this early stage - it's better than the one you find in the Echo Dot.

Google also unveiled its Google Home Max, the larger version of the Home.

And we can confirm that fact as we munched on the sugary snack while we inspected Google's latest smart home speaker. The Max speaker comes with a "Smart Sound" technology. Google will offer 12 months of ad-free YouTube music subscription with the purchase of the Home Max. It will be coming in two colour variants - Chalk and Charcoal, priced at $399.

A year after launching the Home, the technology giant's first AI-powered smart speaker, the Home Mini will be available to buy in the United Kingdom and the USA from October 29. Google has equipped the Home Max with touch controls and the backlit LEDs. Google Home was the company's first stab at an Amazon Echo competitor-a smart home speaker imbued with a digital assistant.

Actor Dileep Gets Conditional Bail After Four Attempts and 85 Days Custody
On July 11, Dileep was expelled from the primary membership of Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) after being arrested. But, he came to the limelight with the Malayalam actress assault and abduction case in relation to which he was arrested.

You can use it as an intercom of sorts using the new broadcast feature; by placing the Home Mini in various places throughout your house, you can use it to broadcast a message to all Home devices in your house. Connectivity options include a 3.5mm jack, Bluetooth and Chromecast support.

The Mini will cost nearly $50, roughly the small price as Amazon's smaller speaker, the Echo Dot. In fact, Google claims that it adjusts nearly immediately so users can move in anywhere they please. It will be available at retailers on October 19th and sell for $49.

Google also souped up the already highly rated camera on the Pixel, boasting that it will take even better photos than the iPhone. Both speakers are due to hit stores in December. To power the device, you'll need to use its microUSB port.

Google is counting on the knowledge that it has accumulated through its dominant search engine to make its assistant far more intelligent than either Alexa or Siri, giving it an edge over its rivals over time.
