Google Home Max Has Line-In Latency Issues

If there is one drawback to using Bluetooth speakers or headphones is that when it comes to watching videos, you might notice some latency issues, where the audio might come later than the video, resulting in a video where you see the character's lips/mouth move, but the audio comes in a few milliseconds later. Now, it has been confirmed that Google Home Max, the large speaker introduced by the company couple of months ago alongside the new Pixel smartphones and the Home Mini speaker, also has a latency bug. However, folks at Variety discovered that the audio streamed through the available line-in port includes a slight delay. This makes the Home Max the only model in Google's portfolio specifically for audiophiles owning a classic tape deck. At today's Made by Google event, the company unveiled two new ...

At its launch, Google promoted the AUX-in port as Home Max's advantage as the port can be used to plug other audio devices into the Home Max through a stereo cable.


Shortly after its announcement, the Google Home Mini encountered an issue where it was always listening and thus required some of its capabilities to be disabled via a software update. However, if you're an audio pro, you should probably not rely on the Google Home Max for your needs. The aux port plays well with other devices as well. However, this shouldn't come as a huge blow to regular users as majority will probably use Bluetooth for playing music. For now, Google has not revealed a timeline for rolling out a fix for audio latency issue. Throw in a bit of extra latency, and you won't be able to match those beats at all. Now this delay might be negligible for most users but it will be crippling for users who intend to use it for mixing or other professional work. "We're aware of a slight delay with aux-in", that spokesperson said via email.
