Built From Ground Up
For both the new Google Home products, the company has worked from the scratch. These speakers are encased in specially-developed smart fabric that responds to touch. To give it a minimalistic look, both the devices have discreet LEDs that glow up to show a response to a given command.
Google Home Mini
Google has smartly reduced the size on the new Home mini to offer all the features and functionality of its bigger cousin in a smaller size. The speaker, with integrated Google Assistant, recognizes all commands with ease and offers seamless operation.
Google has baked in seamless operation with other Google devices and users can control them by just using their voice. However, the device availability and functionality are limited to a few countries right now, so it’s not coming to India anytime soon.
The Google Home Mini will be made available carrying a price tag of $49 starting October 19.
Google Home Max
Built on the similar lines of Google Home Mini, the Home Max takes the audio experience to the next level. Developed using the same smart fabric, the Home Max offer dual sub-woofers and tweeters for a more powerful sound.
The best part of Google Home Max is its ability to tune the sound output based on the room size and the amount of stuff that’s in the room.
The Google Assitant, along with all voice-based commands, comes in as a standard and users can also use two of these with devices for a better stereo sound experience.
The Google Home Max will be made available carrying a price tag of $399 starting December.
