Tonight the NWS is calling for a low around 44 with the winds turning to the south, but remaining calm at 5 to 7 miles per hour . Early morning humidity should be in the high 80s to low 90s through Wednesday then reach 100 from Thursday through Sunday .
The bottom third of the Home Mini isn't covered in material, rather it's a plastic base which features a USB-C port for the power cord and a physical button to mute the microphone if you don't want it listening in at certain moments. Destined to be endlessly messed with by your cat, the Home Mini will be the cheapest way for buyers to enter the Google Home ecosystem. While the Max is designed for music, the Mini is more about offering access to Google Assistant in your home. It goes on pre-order in the U.S. today, with a full release set for 19 October.
As for the Google Home Max, the speaker is priced at $399 (roughly Rs. 26,000), and will go on sale only in December, starting with the United States before being made available in other regions. You can ask it questions, or directions, or use it to control your television (as long as you a have a Chromecast attached to your TV, of course). It also supports "Voice Match" technology, which recognises different voices of users and shows customised results. It has Cast functionality, as well as input via stereo 3.5 mm jack.
It will also be coming to other countries Google operates in, including the United Kingdom, soon. In addition to relaying audio from the phone, the headphones can also translate spoken language in real time, working with translation software built into the new Pixels.
