While the Home Mini only fetches for $49 Dollars, the Home Max understandably goes for quite a bit more at $499 USD.

During its Pixel 2 event on October 4, Google announced two additions to its Home smart speaker range. 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.

The Google Home Max has a fabric design for the grille, with the speaker available in two color options - chalk and charcoal.

It is created to be used on its side, but thanks to some helpful magnets it can be stood up too. The microphones are pretty impressive as well as Google claims them to be far field microphones that can capture your commands even while music is playing. And then, at the tail end of the Google Home announcement, the thump of a bass showed up.

The Google Home Mini unveiled on Wednesday is a button-sized speaker covered in fabric.

A video posted by a Twitter user showed a crowd of people fleeing from a nearby music festival after the shots were reported. The moving event was organized by Nashville Mayor Megan Barry , along with the CMA and Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp.

Google also announced wireless headphones, called Pixel Buds. It has Cast functionality, as well as input via stereo 3.5 mm jack. To power the device, you'll need to use its microUSB port.

To make the premium package even more impressive, the Google Home Max is the company's first audio device with Smart Sound, an artificial intelligence-powered technology allowing it to determine its relative position in a room and adjust its performance so as to fill its entire surroundings with rich audio.

The new feature has been created to make a profile out of your voice's pitch and tone and differentiate it from the rest of the household.

Thanks to the Google Assistant you'll also be able to ask the name of songs, just by humming the tune. It's a beefed up version of the standard Google Home with more audio muscle and a rectangular design that works in either portrait or landscape mode. Now, Google Home multi-user support is now rolling out to all countries on which the Home is being sold in. It will go on sale for $399 in December. The speaker comes with a 12-month subscription to YouTube Red, which includes YouTube Music ad-free.

The Home Max will roll out to other territories including the United Kingdom next year.
