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.

Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Buds?
The Galaxy Buds are solidly good wireless earbuds with comfortable design and reasonable sound quality for an affordable price.
Samsung has added some nice features here like Ambient Sound, but there are also cost cutting measures and iPhone owners will want to avoid considering these as an AirPods alternative.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.
However, unless you're going to use the wide-angle lens a lot there are some strong rivals out there like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.
