Google Home Max is officially introduced in the United Kingdom. The smart speaker, which in our opinion is much smarter and better designed than its competitors, has been available in the US and Australia for a while, but in the end British customers have the chance to find one.
How much does it cost me?
Now here's the problem: the Google Home Max is now available to buy both in-store and online, exclusively through the Google Store and John Lewis, but it's the rather high price of £ 399.
This is a little more than we were expensive than we expected, since you can get the same product in the US for $ 399 for a while, and apart from Apple, most brands are no longer comparing dollar pounds in international prices.
That said, you can get the new speaker in chalk and charcoal colors, so you have at least some options to blend it into your home decor.
So what's so special about it?
The Google Home Max is a much larger version of Google Home – but it's 20 times louder because of the 4.5-inch high-excursion woofers installed.
Like its smaller sibling, the Max also uses the Google Assistant AI, which allows you to control your home, answer questions and even set reminders.
Plus, the Google Home Max is the first Google speaker with smart sound – a feature that lets Max adjust its audio to you and your environment by adjusting the sound wherever you place it in a room.
The Max supports Bluetooth and has an auxiliary port (see, it can be done, Apple), but also works with a wide range of music services such as YouTube Music, Google Play Music, Deezer and Spotify. There is also the possibility to listen to old-fashioned radio channels, which will please many.
