Mini makes the Google Assistant more accessible than ever at home. Called the Google Home Mini, the $49 device with touch gesture support, will take on Amazon's compact Echo Dot and others.

Multiple leaks had given it all away already, but on Wednesday, Google made it official: The company's Google Home smart speaker is getting two new siblings.

Google Home Max will launch in the United States for Dollars 399 and comes with 12 months of ad-free YouTube Music.

The Google Home Mini (known as codename "Joplin" until this point) will reportedly be available in chalk, charcoal and coral colours.

Google has expanded its Google Home family, with the launch of the Google Home Mini and Google Home Max speakers. Priced at $49 in the U.S., the device is already up for pre-orders in the country and will be made available starting October 19.

Google is also adding to its hands-free calling feature for Google Home. The speaker's orientation can also be changed from horizontal to vertical.

With Sonos and Apple emerging as competitors and Amazon launching new models in its Echo line, the market for voice-activated assistants is more crowded than ever. The device comes with dual 4.5-inch high-excursion woofers and custom 0.7-inch tweeters. Also, it comes with a smart audio optimization feature that automatically adjusts sound depending upon the room's surroundings. For users wanting a bit more oomph, there's Google Home Max.

The bigger speaker, Home Max, is meant for a more serious music enthusiast, Google says. It'll be available on October 19th with pre-orders starting immediately.

Max will cost $399, and it'll be available in December in two colors: chalk and charcoal.

It's nit just speakers that have been announced as Google also revealed the successor to the ChromeBook Pixel, which was discontinued earlier this year. Moreover, the hands free calling feature, which was introduced earlier in the United States is coming to the United Kingdom later this year.
