As of this very moment, today 30 August 2018, the Google Home Max is available in the UK. The Google Home Max is a premium smart speaker that Google promises as its best sounding and most impactful Google Home product, taking full advantage of the Google Assistant’s power.
You can find the full details of the product in our release article here.
Aiming for outstanding audio quality the Google Home Max uses premium hardware for a high-fidelity, AI driven sound experience. Dual 4.5-inch high-excursion woofers promise a balanced bass performance and the ability to play music extremely loud being up to 20 times more powerful than the Google Home.
The Google Home Max is available at John Lewis at a RRP of £399.
This is the first product to feature Smart Sound which is an audio experience driven by Google’s artificial intelligence. This AI will adapt itself based on its location in a room, adjusting for the best sound profile based on its current position.
Max will work with a wide range of music services including YouTube Music, Google Play Music, Deezer and Spotify. Bluetooth is also supported along with an auxiliary port and the ability to tune into your favourite radio stations.
As with the rest of the Google Home family the Google Assistant will be built into Max to make your life that much easier, from planning your day through to controlling your smart home with a simple spoken work or sentence. The Assistant will recognise your voice and up to give others, so everyone in the house can make use of its features.
