You might also want to consider the new Sonos One, which was announced today, too. There are touch controls on the device along with support for connectivity options like Bluetooth, Google Cast, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

How do we describe this. "You can set the camera down on the coffee table when the kids are goofing around or clip it to a chair to get a shot of your cat playing with its favourite toy", says Google.

It has the same fabric-finish like the Google Home Mini. But Google's more thorough than just making it look good, they also designed the fabric that covers the Home Mini from scratch.

Google has another web-connected speaker to join its family of Google Home speakers.

The Home Max, which comes in chocolate and charcoal colors, is available in the U.S. at launch and will come to more countries in 2018. The regular Google Home now sells for $129, though over the course of the past year, but it has often been on sale for just under $100. Max will also be able to control smart-enabled appliances and devices like the standard Home and Home Mini.

Both will happily play tunes, and on our first listen the Home Mini had the slight edge in sound quality.

The US technology firm has just announced its new Home Mini and Home Max speakers. And it seems to be packing the specs to give the HomePod a real run for its money. The device comes with dual 4.5-inch high-excursion woofers and custom 0.7-inch tweeters.

Orientation doesn't matter, and Max will readjust itself based on how you position it and whenever you move it. It can stream music from YouTube Music and Spotify (with a free or paid-for subscription). The Google Home Max is official and here's everything you need to know about the specs, price and United Kingdom release date. YouTube Red, of course, also means that YouTube Music will be ad-free, allowing you to pull up Google Assistant and ask her to stream music from YouTube without ever having to encounter an ad.
