Google has also stated that the Max will has "Smart Sound" which sees the speaker alter the sound profile to compensate for where it is placed in a room, much like Sonos's Trueplay speaker tuning. I've spoken to any number of people this year who've taken a chance on the Amazon Echo Dot and then decided Alexa is for them. The speakers those were launched are the Google Home Mini and Google Home Max. 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. You can preorder the speaker starting today from the Google Store and other retailers. Both the Amazon and Google devices now come with extended routines which are capable of performing several actions with just a single prompt.

According to the company, the Max should also learn to recognize your voice, so that it can cue up your personal playlists on command. The puck will be available all Google Home markets and deliver the full-sized Google Assistant experience. It has two 114mm woofers and 18mm tweeters which make it more powerful than your average Bluetooth speaker.

Perhaps the most intriguing new feature is Smart Sound. It's advanced enough to recognise walls where the sound reflects and adjusts the output direction and volume to compensate. Home Mini, like the larger Home, can be fully controlled by the users' voice. It's powered by Google Assistant, obviously. Furthermore, it can connect with Chromecast audio devices. That big ticket does include a 12-month subscription for Youtube Red, which would otherwise cost $120. Google Pixel Buds Google Pixel Buds are the search giant's first ever wireless earphones.

Unfortunately, Google is making this a US-exclusive for now.

Consumers will also broadcast messages to all Google Home devices around the house. It is available for pre-orders from Wednesday itself in Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the US.

Google announced that voice calling is coming to the United Kingdom allowing the speaker to ring friends and family by simply speaking to it. You plug it into the wall and set it up through your Google Home app on Android or iOS. "We've put machine learning capabilities directly into Clips so when you turn it on, the camera looks for good moments to capture". The images saved can be viewed in the connected account's Google Photos platform.
