While Google is claiming to have sold millions of Home speakers, it didn't give a breakdown of how those sales were split between the Home, the Home Mini, and the Home Max.

Home Max was launched in mid-December at $399 -- so it's clear that it makes up a small portion f those million of sales. One is directly through Home Control, which is easily recognizable by the fact that all the devices imported show up in a list, you can assign them to rooms, you can use regular voice commands to trigger them, and the same Assistant voice will answer you back.

Now with their ability to sync with other smart home devices, the benefits are clear.
