At the MadeByGoogle hardware event, Google announced two smarthome speakers in addition to its Google Home.

Both speakers are capable of all the same machine learning-powered tasks that the original Google Home can do through the Google Assistant. Max will also be able to control smart-enabled appliances and devices like the standard Home and Home Mini. It will come two colour options only - Chalk and Charcoal.

It is created to be used on its side, but thanks to some helpful magnets it can be stood up too.

It has two 4.5-inch woofers on board and two 0.7 inch customer tweeters.

I played bad ". "I don't know, I just got super frustrated", he said. "I put in a pretty good week, had some good wins". It's tough to find positives when you won three games in the final.

Max supports YouTube Music, Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, iHeart Radio, and TuneIn, and will play music via Cast, Bluetooth, or stereo aux input from a home stereo.

The Home Max by Google is definitely made to compete with the likes of Apple's HomePod, hence it will have a bunch of similar features as well, just like this one. It'll be available in other Google Home territories (like the UK) sometime next year. With a single command, you can control multiple smart home devices plus get information you need in the moment. The Google Mini comes with no buttons.

Perhaps the most intriguing new feature is Smart Sound. For instance, the volume will automatically adjust depending on the ambient sound of the room its in or even the time of day. The dome-shaped speaker is priced at $49 (approximately Rs 3,200) and goes for pre-orders today in all Google Home countries, which basically means it is not coming to India. Users can simply tap on the earbud to trigger the Google Assistant or change the track. The device is being touted as the biggest and best smart speaker by Google.

With streaming taking a greater emphasis nowadays, the Home Max comes with a 12-month subscription to YouTube Music, an ad-free way of streaming music that's on YouTube.
