I've been living with the Google Home Max and Apple's HomePod side by side for almost 6 months, and they both have one major problem
- I've been testing the Google Home Max and Apple's HomePod side by side for nearly six months.
- Both devices have their pros and cons, but they share a larger issue: They both listen in and speak out of turn constantly.
- At this point, I like both devices equally, but if you're concerned about your privacy, don't buy either one.
For going on six months, I've been conducting an experiment at my apartment: I have Google's Home Max and Apple's HomePod living side by side in an attempt to find out which one is better.
The HomePod - Apple's answer to the Home Max, the Echo Plus, and other high-end smart speakers on the market - was announced earlier, in June 2017, but got a delayed start and didn't make it to market until last February.
I expected a clear winner, or at least some very steep competition.
But what I found over the course of several months was something a bit more disturbing.
