    Google announced a larger version of the Google Home. It looks like a decently built unit. I wouldn't mind getting one, but I would like to hear the sound from it before being deciding.

    From the blog: https://www.androidcentral.com/googl...-filling-sound

    Anyone else interested?

    I am definitely interested in this. I was going to with Sonos but Google just may have changed my mind.

    Thinking of getting one no matter what? Wouldn't mind hearing your thoughts on it.

    I'm buying one of these for sure. but not until they go on sale, $400 is a hard pill to swallow.

    I'm considering getting one tho. my living room projector does Bluetooth audio... so having only 1 wire and a speaker that plays music on its own seems awesome.

    next evolution should be the ability to have 2 front speakers and 2 home minis as rear and play surround sound from Chromecast ultra! that would be sick!

    Better off waiting for true reviews for this type of product. You can probably get a 250.00 system with similar sound to this system. Just use the google assistant on your phone and say ok google to control bluetooth speakers that don't have google speakers built in. Its just that simple.

    I sometimes get pretty significant promotional discounts on tech through my work- for the right price I might be tempted, but not for full retail. I have no real justification for owning one other than pure nerd appeal, and that's not worth $400.

    Yeah, I just saw that JBL came out with the Link 300. That thing looks pretty nice too and it's only $299.

    I want to see reviews from AV or audio websites, but if it performs well and they add the ability for it to sync with a Chromecast (to act like a soundbar) I will definitely pick one up.

    Is a Google Home. You can group it with a chromecast by default. I don't bother with my regular Home because it's in my living room with my stereo.

    I know that, but after the unveiling Google engineers indicated that they were looking into making Home Max work directly with an individual Chromecast so it could function as a soundbar for a TV, and this would almost guarantee a sale in our household as we've been looking for a good sounding sound bar to go with a TV in a room that doesn't currently have a Home unit in it.

    The rest of our Home units are already synced with a Chromecast Music that is plugged into floor-standing speakers for whole-home audio, but I specifically want the "soundbar" usage model for the room that a Home Max would potentially go in.
