Both come with Google Assistant integrated and can be operated by your voice. It has a white polycarbonate casing and a custom "acoustically transparent" fabric speaker grille that's available in Chalk or Charcoal.
The Mini will cost nearly US$50, roughly the small price as Amazon's smaller speaker, the Echo Dot. Sitting either side of the original Home, are the Home Mini and the premium Google Home Max.

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.More news: Reunion of Blade Runner icons
