Google Home Mini, Home Max Smart Speakers Launched

Google at its hardware launch event in San Francisco on Wednesday introduced the newest members of the Google Home family, the Google Home Mini and Google Home Max. The smaller Home Mini speaker is meant to be used in more rooms, making the services of Google Home (or the Google Assistant) available to more people in a single house. The Google Home Max is a much larger speaker than the Google Home – it is said to be built for 20 times as powerful. The company also announced new features for Google Home, and expansion of features like Google Voice Match and handsfree calling to more regions.

The Google Home Mini has been priced at $49 (roughly Rs. 3,200), and will go up for pre-orders on Wednesday itself in the seven nations the Google Home smart speaker is currently available in – Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, UK, and US. The Google Home Mini is mostly fabric covered, and features four LED lights. It will be available in Coral, Chalk, and Charcoal colour variants.

As for the Google Home Max, the speaker is priced at $399 (roughly Rs. 26,000), and will go on sale only in December, starting with the US before being made available in other regions. It will be launched in Chalk and Charcoal colours, and will come with a 12-month subscription to the ad-free YouTube Red, which includes YouTube Music.

Google Voice Match – the newly introduced feature that recognises individual voices – will be rolling out to all 7 countries the speaker is available in. The company is also touting improved voice recognition, with the ability to understand children as well. Handsfree calling, which was introduced earlier in the US, will also be coming to the UK, later this year. Google also announced a content partnership with Disney.
