Google launches Google Home Min and Max

While it's far from a home stereo solution, this straightforward device presents all of the Google Assistant functionality Home is known for in an unobtrusive package.

It's also hard not to see the device as something of a jab at Sonos. The network is also giving away the speaker free with contracts for the new Pixel 2 phones. Windows has the Windows key, Mac has whatever that leaf thing is, and now Google has the Google Assistant button. To communicate silently with Assistant, you just have to type "Assistant", and it responds quietly. The second new feature is that it will support the brand new Pixelbook Pen. On the other hand, Google Pixel 2 XL will set you back by $849 for the 64GB version and $949 for the 128GB version. The app is available on iOS and Android. It's set to be released October 19 and preorders start today. Customers can pre-order the device online at the Google Store, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Verizon and more. A "Smart Sound" system lets the Max detect its location in the room and automatically adjust its audio accordingly so you get flawless sound no matter where it's placed, though the Apple HomePod will have the same feature when it's released. It sports dual 4.5-inch high-excursion woofers and custom-made 0.7-inch tweeters. It includes a free 12-month subscription to YouTube Red.

Amazon Echo Dot is now available in India and Amazon.in is offering many add-on offers which make it a good deal over-all for curious first-time buyers who want to experience the technology first-hand.

Google has announced a raft of new devices aiming to rival Amazon's Echo, Apple's new iPhones and top-of-the-range hybrid laptops.

Coming to Google Home Mini, the smart speaker comes with fabric that is durable, yet transparent enough to let through both light and sound. It supports Google casting too.

Trump's Tax Reform Plan Draws Mixed Reaction In NY
In the 1990s, the pitch was tied to a "flat tax" - one tax rate for all income and, yes, a postcard-sized tax return. And yet, the 1986 tax reform was largely revenue neutral, and indeed, raised the amount that corporations paid .

With 16GB of internet storage and 130-degree field of view, Google Clips is a wireless camera that connects to your Pixel handsets to automatically capture photos using AI (Artificial intelligence).

Aside from differences in hardware, the three speakers will offer near-identical access to Google's voice assistant. The speaker will be released in more countries next year. Alongside, there were other announcements concerning software like Google Lens, Google Translation, ARCore, and more.

The technology sounds similar to what Apple is promising its upcoming HomePod is capable of.

The standard Google Home speaker features a white plastic shell sitting atop a colored speaker mesh. However, they are already entirely sold out.
