Google Takes On Amazon Echo With ‘Stereo Sound’ Google Home
Google is reportedly developing a premium Google Home smart speaker focused on producing stereo quality sound and featuring more built-in speakers than the current model.
The amped up model, said to be named Google Home ‘Max’, will include dual mid-range drivers and a single tweeter. It’s an upgrade from the current Google Home’s “high excursion” speaker, which isn’t capable of playing stereo quality music.
