The Google Home Max is Google's high-end Google Home smart speaker that's scheduled to arrive this month.

We're obviously talking about the Google Home Max, and when it was unveiled back in October, we knew that it'd be released at some point in December.

The potential Google Home Max release date is listed on Best Buy's website, as first spotted by 9To5Google.

Japan's Emperor, Akihito, Sets Date for Abdication
Japan's Imperial House Council set a date for when Emperor Akihito will step down and open a path for his son to succeed him. The legislation for Akihito's case was needed because the 1947 Imperial House Law does not provide for abdication.

Google also said at the time it revealed the Google Home Max that pre-orders for the speaker would begin on November 13, and that date has come and gone with so such pre-orders going live. According to the big box retailer's online listing for the Home Max, we could see the device launch on December 11. That's in comparison to the sub-$100 prices that you can nab the original Google Home for nowadays, and the sub-$20 (taking into account gift cards) prices that you were able to find the Google Home Mini for on Black Friday. In other words, take this December 11 sales date with a pinch of salt for now. For now, it's looking very likely that the Home Max might become available on December 11. It will include dual 4.5-inch woofers and custom 0.7-inch tweeters. The latter one has a counterpart, the Google Home Mini, that launched earlier this fall as a smart home speaker for smaller rooms and apartments.

However, the new two-command functionality has not been extended to the Google's AI assistant that accompanies Android smartphones.

Best Buy has listed the Google Home Max release date as December 11.
