Google Home Max
The Google Home Max is a small speaker that has built-in Google Assistant capabilities. It’s voice-activated, and it can pick up your voice even if you aren’t very close to the speaker. You can also mute the microphone when you don’t want it to hear you. Its balanced mid-range makes it suitable for vocal-centric content like podcasts, but it’s lacking a bit of low-bass, which can be disappointing for some music fans. On the upside, there are bass and treble adjustments available in its companion app.
