    Google Home Max: sound to rival the Apple HomePod and Amazon Echo?

    Google Home Max: sound to rival the Apple HomePod and Amazon Echo?

    The first impressions of Google’s latest smart speaker, the Google Home Max, are in - could this be the best smart speaker for playing music yet?

    The Google Home Max is Google’s second foray into the smart speaker market following the Google Home in 2017, and one of the highest-profile wireless speaker launches of 2018.

    We bring you our first impressions from the Which? lab.

    Like the original Google Home, it too sports Google Assistant for controlling it with your voice, but this time Google aims to take on the Apple HomePod and Amazon Echo with a focus on maximising sound quality.

    But does it deliver? Unlike cylindrical rivals such as the Amazon Echo and Apple HomePod, and the smaller Google Home before it, the Google Home Max takes on more of a traditional boxy speaker shape.

    Also in contrast to rivals, it has dual speaker units to produce stereo sound, with a high maximum volume and the potential to deliver a high degree of bass, plus a built-in equaliser to adjust the sound to your taste.

    My major gripe with these things is that they get a bad name for spying on us.

    Just another way to get into our homes.

    On that I think you are right, although the big smart-hub manufacturers deny that their equipment is designed to gather marketing information.

    I guess you can either trust them on that or you don't.

    They certainly get the blame for spying on their customers.
