Hands on: Google Home Mini review

Grid View

Google also announced Home Mini, an Amazon Echo Dot competitor that will cost $49.

The Google Home Mini and Home Max are two of the first products that are announced at the Google Pixel 2 special launch event.

Google has put design at the forefront of their products as the face of their deep integration with all their machine learning.

The Google Home Mini carries almost the same features as the Google Home. Google says that this fabric was specially developed to be used with the device. Now, Google Home multi-user support is now rolling out to all countries on which the Home is being sold in. In the United States, pre-orders start today, with instore availability from 19 October.

Well, now instead of having to strain your attractive operatic voice to cajole them into moving faster, you Google can help instead. Users can get it in chalk or charcoal colour options.

Google pulled off a major surprise at the Made By Google event as they launched the Google Home Max. It will come with 12-month, ad-free subscription to YouTube Music and costs $399.

This feature, while it's actually something really basic, can have many different utilities: you can use a broadcast for telling your friends something in another room, you can use one for waking up your children in the morning, and a lot more! With dual stereo speakers, the Home Max is the company's bid to go head to head against Sonos, Bose and even Apple's upcoming HomePod.


Even if you are not a Nest owner, according to Google the feature will function with over 1000 smart home products of over 100 different brands.

There are two 4.5-inch woofers, and a gaggle of tweeters behind that - Google says it's "twenty times more powerful" than the original Google Home.

Nest will also support Google Home routines.

It will also be coming to other countries Google operates in, including the United Kingdom, soon.

Thanks to the Google Assistant you'll also be able to ask the name of songs, just by humming the tune.

The small, square device, called Google Clips, can be attached to a stationary object so it can capture images of everything within its range of view.
