Google is selling the Home Max smart speaker again, for now

Despite Google’s Home Max being officially retired and pulled from sale a couple of weeks ago, the Google Store is once again offering the speaker for sale. While flashing a message saying the device is sold out and prompting customers to try out a pair of the new Nest Audio devices instead, it will still let you check out a Charcoal-colored Home Max speaker for $179.

Everything we said in our 2017 review still stands, in that this voice-activated speaker has excellent sound quality and plugs directly into Google’s Assistant ecosystem, except it doesn’t cost $400 anymore. It’s unclear how many unsold units are left, but as Android Police notes, this may be your actual last chance to snag one if you missed out on the Black Friday sales that dropped its price to $150.

If $179 isn’t quite low enough get you to bite, then check out Google’s eBay page, where the device is available in both Charcoal and Chalk with full warranty and free shipping, but adds an extra $20 discount that’s available through Thursday.

Update (12/31) - The price on eBay has risen since this was posted, first to $199, and the speaker is now listed for $209.99, but it’s still available on the Google Store for $179.
