Google announces donut-sized Google Home speaker

All of the the audio controls are in a touchpad on the right earbud

Its pretty evident that the Google Home Max will compete with the other smart speakers in the market including the ones from Sonos and Apple HomePod.

As well as launching its new smart speaker, Google is unveiling new personal assistant features that include broadcasting messages to multiple devices. The fabric seen on the front of the device was described as being "acoustically transparent" and feels extremely soft, seemingly being identical to the material covering the Google Home Mini. The Google Home Max is an audio-centric device that mostly focusses on offering basic Home features along with stereo speakers with emphasis on bass. The device makes use of Google's hardware, software as well as AI and Machine learning technologies to deliver an incredible music experience.

When is the Google Home Max release date?

The Google Home Mini is available to pre-order online at the Google Store as well as several retailers including Currys PC World, Maplin, Argos, John Lewis, EE and Carphone Warehouse.

Now, the days are gone, when you have to take care of your device even when you are at home. It can sit in either vertical or horizontal orientation, and it comes in both "chalk" and 'charcoal'.

Facebook Messenger Lite Android app now available in US, UK
Facebook's " Lite " version of its Messenger app is now available for Android users in the Google Play Store . People seem to enjoy its simple nature and data-friendly approach, even if they do have high-end smartphones.

Google Home Max: How much will it cost and when can I buy it in the UK? Now, Google Home multi-user support is now rolling out to all countries on which the Home is being sold in.

Well, now instead of having to strain your lovely operatic voice to cajole them into moving faster, you Google can help instead.

Google is providing users a free 12 months subscription to YouTube Red. The company added that it will soon add a feature that will allow Google Home to use your personal phone number for those outgoing calls for the first time.

It's also larger than the original Home, and boasts a different design. One phrase will basically be able to turn on the lights, roll up a window shade, read the news for you and even start boiling water.

In terms of connectivity, Google Home Max will be Cast-enabled. It can integrate smoothly with YouTube Music, Spotify, Pandora, Google Play, and iHeartRadio.
