The Google Home Mini is Google's answer to Amazon's Echo Dot

Google pulled back the curtain on a collection of products

While the Home Mini debuted today to compete with the Echo Dot and low-priced smart speakers, the Home Max will compete directly with high-end smart speakers like products from Sonos, recently unveiled Echo Plus and Apple's HomePod.

It's about a fifth of the size of the standard Google Home. Now, Google Home is going to ease out the task to find out your device if you have lost it in your home.

Google also emphasized the importance of its "voice match" software, which lets multiple different users in a household use the same Google Home device but receive different answers.

The new Google Home Max will go on sale in the US December for $US400 ($511) - Australian pricing and availability has not yet been announced. Both free and paid Spotify accounts were highlighted, as were YouTube Music and Google Music. Then there was a Diplo video - again, doubling down on bass capabilities of the Google Home Max.

Bypassing Publisher Paywalls Via Google? Not Anymore
This model is how First Click Free worked, and it is also already used by some publishers, such as the Dallas Morning News. The change in Google's policy comes as a number of news producers and publishers were unhappy with the system.

Better still, the hands-free calling feature that was only available in the U.S. and Canada is now coming to the United Kingdom, too. One of them is the launch of Google Home Mini and other is the launch of the Home Product in Japan. And good news! You can already grab this latest update to the Google Home application in the Play Store, so be on the lookout for an app update coming soon. Google is indeed stepping up their game when it comes to smart speakers.

The Google Home Mini is a compact Google Home device with a curvier design that suits best in any corner of your house. The speaker is also created to be set up horizontally or vertically, with a magnetic plastic bottom that you can move to whatever side of the speaker you need to, depending on how you set it up. It'll be read aloud in the Google Assistant voice instead of your own voice, so it's not simply broadcasting a simple voice message. The firm's Wednesday hardware event hence managed to surprise many industry watchers, with the tech giant launching a gadget that's meant to be its most premium Google Assistant-enabled offering to date. It still looks like a Home device, but it already looks more like it'll fit into your home - whichever room you decide to put it in.

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.
