From the word itself Google meant to come with a max device and which is the Google Home Max. It has been designed to be the life and soul of a party, delivering high-quality sound that can go loud when you need it.
 
We are waiting to get more info on this from Google, and hopes are high as the Home and Home Mini are best smart speakers now available in market. As it's on the large size as far as wireless speakers go, finding a home for the Home Max could be tricky.
We imagine most people will put one in their living room or bedroom, or multiple speakers around the home to create a full multi-room system.
