This is not a cheap smart speaker, but Google has put audio quality at the forefront of that decision. Priced at $399, it’s even more expensive than Apple’s forthcoming HomePod (at $349), but it packs all of the power of Google’s Assistant an improved listening experience for folks who want to listen to music more often than not.
Google hasn’t announced an official launch date for the Home Max just yet. We know it’s going to arrive in December based on what the company announced earlier this year, but no specific date to circle on the calendar. Thanks to Best Buy, though, we may have an idea. According to the big box retailer’s online listing for the Home Max, we could see the device launch on December 11.
You can’t pre-order the Home Max or anything, and it’s possible that Best Buy is just throwing up a listing with an expected date without actually knowing anything for certain. But a December 11 release date would give enough leeway for customers to pick one up in time for the holiday gift exchange later that same month.
Are you planning on buying a Google Home Max when it does launch?
