Google Pixel 2 Event: Google Launches Home Mini And Home Max

But if it's multi-room Spotify across a load of old speakers or Home devices you're after, then a combination of ChromeCast Audios and a Home Mini could be a better choice.

All Google Home products now use Voice Match, which uses different voice factors to bring personal help to each individual member of the house. Unlike the Echo Dot which has buttons on top the Google Home Mini has a fabric enclosure which is sturdy and lets in light and sound. It will be rolling out to all the 7 countries in which the Home speakers are available. The Google Home Mini will be available in stores starting October 19. Both the Amazon and Google devices now come with extended routines which are capable of performing several actions with just a single prompt. It can set reminders, search the web for any queries; make calls based on voice commands and more.

The new features on the new Home Devices include the ability to recognise people by their voices, and customise the experience for that user.

Google Home Max will launch in the USA for $399 and comes with 12 months of ad-free YouTube Music. "All of the Max's power goes into a speaker setup with a pair of high-excursion 4.5" woofers and two 0.7" tweeters. Of course it has the usual complement of smart features, so yes, it will allow you to order Domino's without lifting a finger. It can even adjust the audio depending on the ambient noise. The Google Home Max will arrive in December, marked with the same $399 price tag as Apple's HomePod.

The Google Home Mini, similar to the original version, is operated by Google Assistant.

The front is covered by a fabric that is available in two colours: chalk and charcoal.

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

The controls on the Home Mini are also simple. Also, Google's free-of-cost Hands Free Calling is coming later this year to the United Kingdom as well. Google says they took hundreds of tries before they came out with the flawless colors for the device.
