That's quite a discount considering this speaker's impressive audio chops and earthshaking volume levels. The Max is also the only device in Google's speaker roster that supports stereo pairing. Google also cut the the cost of two other devices.The original Google Home speaker is now $100, down from $130. 

And the Google Nest Hub smart display (formerly the Google Home Hub) will have a $130 price tag. It previously sold for $150 -- but it's been widely on sale ahead of Mother's Day for $99 or less.
