As for music, it can play from Spotify (and several other streaming services), YouTube Music, Google Cast, and 3.55mm audio input.

Google kicked off its hardware event today with a couple of new additions to its line of connected speaker products for the home. Google's claim is that the Smart Sound feature will work dynamically, so if you move it, it will be able to change its audio profile.

As with the full size Google Home, you can control the Home Mini without even touching it.

Max will play personalized playlist and acts as DJ, so you use your voice to play certain artists, raise or lower volume, music genres, or just sing it a diddy from a favorite song and the DJ will attempt to identify the song.

Google's voice-activated digital assistant will serve as the brains for all the speakers.

Just like the Google Home Mini, there's a strip of four white LED lights that will illuminate to acknowledge your commands to Google Assistant.

Excited for Google Home's new and revamped features? They come in a pocket-sized charging case, which also charges the earphones. For example, you will be able to ask your Google Home "who's at the front door" and it will connect with a previously paired Nest camera located at the said front door, displaying a live stream of it on a connected TV. "You can set the camera down on the coffee table when the kids are goofing around or clip it to a chair to get a shot of your cat playing with its favourite toy", says Google. "Clips looks for stable, clear shots of people you know", says Google.

The small, square device, called Google Clips, can be attached to a stationary object so it can capture images of everything within its range of view.
