New to Google I/O this year is an immersive Google Home Max experience, which is an absolutely massive Google Home Max replica that you can go inside. Once inside, you’ll find a Google Home Max mounted upon the wall of a room filled with LEDs that osculate, change, and dance while adapting to the music being played from the wall mounted smart speaker. While the crazy light show is definitely impressive and a cool party trick for I/O attendees, the entire purpose of this room is to show just how loud and clear the sound is coming from Google’s premium audio device.
Google wants to remind I/O attendees that they’re serious about audio, have a dedicated audio team with seasoned industry experts, and that they have a premium audio device with Smart Sound that’s up for grabs. The Google Home Max’s internals were hand picked for their quality, contain dual 4.5″ sub-woofers for deep bass and custom tweeters for crystal clear highs. Smart Sound is Google’s take on using their AI smarts to automatically adjust the equalizer settings to match the acoustics of the room.
If you’re at I/O 2018 and want to experience first hand what the Google Home Max has to offer and see a nifty light show, be sure to head on over to stage left and check it out. You can also pick one up from the Google Store for $399. Google’s running a special right now too. If you grab a Home Max, they’ll toss in a Home Mini for free.
