Google Home Max Arriving August
Google has announced its largest smart speaker, the Google Home Max, will land in Australia in August. The device is tipped to retail above $500, and competes with the likes of JBL’s Link 300 and Apple’s HomePod.
Whilst exact local pricing and release date is yet to be confirmed, the device sells for US$399 internationally.
The Google Home Max is the bigger, larger sibling to the Google Home and Google Home Mini, and claims to deliver up to 20 times more powerful sound.
The smart speaker incorporates two 0.7-inch tweeters and two 4.5-inch high excursion woofers, and automatically optimises sound quality according to its position in a room.
The Google Home Max is tipped to launch in both Charcoal and Chalk, and can be placed either horizontally or vertically.
Like its siblings, the Google Home Max wirelessly connects to other units to form a multi-room system.
