Google Home Max goes on sale in USA via Best Buy

Google Assistant

The Google Home range of devices are smarthome speakers in an emerging category that includes the Amazon Echo powered by Alexa, Microsoft's Invoke powered by Cortana, and the upcoming HomePod by Apple powered by Siri.

Curiously, Google Home Max isn't available on the Google Play Store just yet.

With streaming taking a greater emphasis nowadays, the Home Max comes with a 12-month subscription to YouTube Music, an ad-free way of streaming music that's on YouTube. If your smart home appliances haven't been behaving lately, it's worth giving them a go. First, you should install their corresponding apps and connect the devices to your Wi-Fi network. A new feature called Smart Sound will automatically balance the Max's sound output based on your surroundings and what type of audio you're listening to (e.g. music, podcasts, news briefings).




Smart home devices make life so much more convenient. You also have a variety of connection options, including Chromecast, Bluetooth, and even a 3.5mm jack. You can tell Google to sync all of your devices at once, or proceed one type at a time. The top of the Google Home Max is a touch surface where you can control music volume and play or pause the music. For Spotify and Pandora you will need to link your account. Currently, the Google Home Max can't be used as a sound bar for your TV, but it is a highly requested feature that the company is exploring, according to Digital Trends.

Google Home Max is offered in your choice of chalk or charcoal (white or black) color schemes. It's software that keeps getting smarter thanks to automatic updates. Will you purchase this new Google Home Max speaker in future?
