Google Home Mini: Everything you need to know

Google Home night mode lets users schedule quiet hours

The Mini will cost nearly US$50, roughly the small price as Amazon's smaller speaker, the Echo Dot.

Like the other Google Home devices, Max works with services like Spotify and Apple Music so you can say, "Hey Google, play "Drops of Jupiter" by Train" and it'll play that song. "It's durable and soft, but also transparent enough to let through light and sound".

The front of the Max is covered in the same fabric as the Home Mini, though the coral color will not be available. It'll mostly be used for turning volume up or down, but you can also tap to pause.

Both speakers are capable of all the same machine learning-powered tasks that the original Google Home can do through the Google Assistant.

In terms of connectivity, Google Home Max will be Cast-enabled. The back panel is made from rigid polycarbonate, giving the large block some stability. The speaker has dual 4.5-inch woofers for better bass performance.

Ouch! Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp gets burned by Harlem Globetrotters
Liverpool have won just once in six matches in all competitions in September, which has led to some criticism. Over the years they have played more than 26,000 exhibition games in 122 countries and territories.

Regardless, it's clear Google is taking its place in the smart speaker market seriously.

We should have in mind that Google Home already had phone call functionality.

Internal breakdown of the Home Max.

In another announcement related to Google Home, users can now find their devices if they have lost in in their house.

Google has unveiled two new variants of the Google Home smart speakers.

Raiders QB Carr out for 2-6 weeks with back fracture
But it's hard to imagine that Del Rio would embrace the idea, especially if he believes that Carr's injury status is temporary. He broke his leg in the second-to-last game of the regular season in 2016 with the Raiders holding a 12-3 record.

Google is selling the Home Max for nearly $400, about $50 more than the HomePod.

Google Home Max will launch in the US for $399 and comes with 12 months of ad-free YouTube Music. That big ticket does include a 12-month subscription for Youtube Red, which would otherwise cost $120. So if you are a proud owner of Nest Hello then Google Home will be able to send the doorbell ring to you. As Google reps said on stage, this will likely be a hit with parents and a nightmare for children. Whether you want multi-room audio or just one really good speaker, Google is now a legit contender.

Google first introduced its Home speaker at last year's Google I/O conference.

Google is counting on the knowledge that it has accumulated through its dominant search engine to make its assistant far more intelligent than either Alexa or Siri, giving it an edge over its rivals over time. The Mini will go on sale in all current seven Google Home countries, with Japan launching this week. It will be available in retail stores on October 19.

In the United States the Max will cost $399.
