Of course, like the other Google Home devices, you'll be able to use Google Assistant to help you throughout your everyday tasks. The Google Home app has a built-in troubleshooter, but the new Google Assistant commands save you the trouble of having to pull out your smartphone. The speaker also works with Spotify (paid and free), Google Play Music, Pandora, iHeart and TuneIn radio.

For the speakers, Google has packed two 4.5-inch "high-excursion" woofers and 0.7-inch tweeters that make the Max 20x more powerful than the regular Home, according to the company. Most of the time, the Google Assistant will recognize the second set of lights just fine, but every once in a while, it doesn't. You can even wirelessly pair two Maxes together for stereo sound.

"It's our ultimate speaker, made for your music", reads the listing of Google Home Max on Best Buy.

Home Max, a larger and higher-end version of Google Home, is available for $399 through the Google Play Store, Best Buy, Walmart, and Verizon.

Google's early October press event will largely be remembered as the launching pad for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones but that wasn't the only new hardware to break cover that day.

Louvre Abu Dhabi Claims They Own Leonardo's "Salvator Mundi"
The museum opened with about 600 pieces including items from early Mesopotamia. "We own it", the official said. The newspaper said that the work will be lent or resold to museums, largely in the Middle East and Asia.

Do you plan on picking one up? Other connectivity options include Bluetooth and a 3.5 mm audio jack.

Apple's HomePod is a Siri powered smart speaker which will be equipped with some of the great technical features.

Google introduced the original Google Home as its first voice-controlled smart speaker a year ago.
