Google officially unveils its first 'smart' display

New Google Home App

Yes, most of these (at least the non-phone ones) will also be coming to Google Home devices. Often, the important stuff is buried within several subsections, while the less essential stuff is more prominent.

Like any Google Home speaker, you can interact with the Home Hub using a variety of voice commands.

Jolly said the Home Hub, with a seven-inch screen, will allow users to access a "dashboard" that can be used to control any of several thousand internet-connected devices or appliances.

Shortcuts for the things you do most, like turning on and off the lights or playing music. I'll let you decide after you see what the new Google Home Hub can do.

On a similar note, Google is committed to the promise, which it delivered at its I/O event in May 2018, by launching a feature dubbed as continued conversation for Home Mini, Google Home, and Home Max this week. But the Google Home Hub isn't the hub I wanted.

Samsung has launched a few sly digs at the brand new Google Pixel phone on Twitter. That could be beneficial for some users, as it could mean the device is capable of streaming videos from the likes of Netflix and BBC iPlayer, something the third-party smart displays are incapable of. From a hardware standpoint, this is still just a Google Home speaker with a screen, not that different from Lenovo and JBL's first swing at the segment.

If you're an Android or Chromecast user, trust Google more than Amazon, or want a smaller smart home speaker with a screen, the Google Hub is now your best bet. If I had to guess, I think the primary "experience" Google wanted to get across with the Home Hub was "low price".

A couple of days after Google launched the new Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel Slate, and the new Home Hub; the search giant has begun rolling out an update to its Home app that brings a new design and a focus on smart controls for smart home devices. And photographers might appreciate that the device doubles as a smart picture frame and can cycle through your Google Photos albums as a screensaver. Will the kind of people who now use Skype or Apple's FaceTime to keep in touch with family and friends really want a separate screen that does much less than a smartphone or tablet? The Home Hub is also the only Google smart display with a temperature changing display, thanks to both the high-quality display and the brightness sensor that can pick up the ambient light color.
