Google
At Google's hardware event, the Mountain View based company has announced new smart speakers which add to the Home family of Google Assistant laden speakers. Google announced the Home Mini and the Home Max. While the Home Mini will be launching in the US this month, the Home Max will come in December and will do battle with Apple's incoming HomePod.

If Google Home is the bossman in the house controlling everything, Google Home Mini is its minion.

Yes, the Google Home Mini is now official. It's looks like a flattened Google Home and with a cloth cover on it. Google actually created the fabric for the Google Home Mini which is tough but also allows light and sound to get in and is touch sensitive. There are four LED lights on top that lets you know it is listening and you can tap on the surface to interact.

The Google Home Mini can churn 360-degree sound and can connect wirelessly to Chromecast-enabled speakers. The speaker comes in three colours — coral, chalk and charcoal.

It is essentially an Amazon Echo Dot competitor and is priced the same at $49 (roughly Rs ) and will be available for pre-order from today and ship in the US, Canada and a few other countries from October 19th. No word on India availability so far.

And if the Google Home Mini is the minion, you got to check out the Google Home Max which completes the dystopian takeover of your home by Google.

The Google Home Max is quite a big, square looking device with a cloth cover and it is built specifically for music. There are two 4.5-inch woofers and two 0.7-inch custom tweeters. That converts to 20 times more powerful than the Google Home.

The Google Home Max comes with Smart Sound that lets it adapt to the shape and size of the room by using, you guessed it, machine learning. The speaker can also adapt the volume based on time and context and ambient sound. Google is talking up its sound quality and it also showed a clip with Major Laser member Diplo who touted its sound quality and also paired it up with CDJ and turntables, indicating that it could be used perhaps like a super smart professional grade or prosumer speaker.

The speaker is of course connected to YouTube and Play Music. And also Spotify, Pandora and other music platforms. The Google Home Max is launching in the US in December for a price of $399 and ships with a 12-month subscription of YouTube Red.
