Adding to the competition Google introduced its Google Home Mini, which is a smaller, and efficient version of the original Google Home.

It's available in the same six countries as the bigger Google Home speaker and is also available in the newly announced country, Japan - taking the tally up to seven countries. This service will be extended to UK.

The Home Max is rocking two 4.5 inch woofers and tweeters covered by a fabric grille, allowing for an ultimate sound experience. The device comes out in three color variants - Coral, Chalk and Charcoal. With this, the speakers recognize individual voices.

It is a direct shot at Amazon's Echo Dot. Nearly the entire enclosure is made of fabric. It has four L.E.D light. Since it's all done dynamically, if you move it it will adjust again. According to the livestream, it's run by touch and offers 360-degree sound. Priced at $49 in the United States, the device is already up for pre-orders in the country and will be made available starting October 19.

Google and Nest have partnered on Google Home for Smart home. And it's easily capable of making itself heard in a medium-sized room. "With Google Chromecast, Nest and Google Home things will become easier". But while the Home is a good start, Google can't stop there if they really want to take over your homes. Kids' speech syntax has been taken specially into account. With dual stereo speakers, the Home Max is the company's bid to go head to head against Sonos, Bose and even Apple's upcoming HomePod. The Google Home Mini will be priced at $49, while a larger speaker called the Google Home Max will be priced at $399. If you buy the Google Home Max in the USA you will get 12 months of YouTube Music which also includes YouTube Red subscription. Smart Sound automatically adjusts for where users place Max in a room. It supports Google casting too.

It comes in two colours - Chalk and Charcoal - and will retail for USD399 (around RM1,687).
