The Google Home Mini has been leaked in full detail earlier and, as expected, it is a smaller version of the Google Home smart speaker with built-in Google Assistant. Unlike the Echo Dot which has buttons on top the Google Home Mini has a fabric enclosure which is sturdy and lets in light and sound. At the heart of the Google Home Max is the new AI powered Smart Sound system that adapts to home conditions on the fly.

Home Mini comes in three colours with Google saying it will launch in the USA first with it coming to the United Kingdom soon.

Home Max will be priced at $399 available in two colors - Chalk and Charcoal.

Google has expanded its Google Home family, with the launch of the Google Home Mini and Google Home Max speakers. It also supports Google Cast, Bluetooth, and aux-in, so you can plug all your existing devices in.

Well, Google Home is also going to be available in Japan from today. The speaker will also automatically turn itself up when in a noisy environment, such as when the washing machine is on its spin cycle. It is a pretty nasty competitor to Amazon's Echo Dot.
