Google Home Max News UK Release Date, Price & Features

At last, Google Home Max is on sale in the UK as well as the US, Canada and Australia. What is it, how much is it, and where can you buy it? We outline the Google Home Max facts you need.

Google announced its Google Home Max in October 2017, and on 30 August 2018 it has finally gone on sale in the UK. 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.

The Home Max was announced alongside the Home Mini, a diminutive version of the Google smart speaker that has smaller speakers - but a much smaller price to make up for it. Read our Google Home Mini review.

When is the Google Home Max release date?
As of last December the Google Home Max is now officially on sale in the US, available from Best Buy for $399.

Since then it has also gone on sale in Canada in May 2018, and Australia in August 2018.

On 30 August 2018 it made its way to the UK, too.

How much is Google Home Max?
In the UK you'll pay £399 for the Google Home Max, which is available from Google direct and will also be available from John Lewis.

In the US the Max costs $399. It comes with a free 12-month subscription to YouTube Music.

What is Google Home Max?
The Max is an enhanced version of Google Home with stereo speakers, and positioned very much as a rival to the Apple HomePod. Google comments that it is "obsessed over the bass".

Powered by dual 4.5-inch high-excursion woofers which Google says make the Max as much as 20 times more powerful than the original Google Home.

It's also larger than the original Home, and boasts a different design. It's a more traditional curved rectangular shape, and can be placed vertically or horizontally to help suit the layout of your room. It's also available in a choice of colours: Chalk and Charcoal.

A Smart Sound feature allows it to automatically adjust its output depending on where it is in the house, turning up or down the volume, and tuning itself to deliver the best possible sound for the space - something that Google says it can do "within seconds."

In common with the other devices in the Google Home line-up the Google Assistant is built-in, and this smart speaker supports multi-room audio so you can hook up several together. It also supports Chromecast, Bluetooth, and Aux In, so you can use the Home Max as your dedicated speaker for your phone, record player, or anything else.

The Max also supports a variety of music services, including YouTube, Spotify (paid and free), Google Play Music, Deezer, and more.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.
