If you\u2019re on the market for a central hub device, something to bring together the best smart home devices with Google Assistant, the Google Nest Hub is that device. Featuring WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, the Hub is ready to connect devices upstairs and down. This is a hub for smart device enthusiasts.\r\nWhy We Like It - Google Nest Hub Review\r\nThe Google Nest Hub is like the bow over a present, bringing together multiple smart home devices in your house, making it accessible from one device\u2014or if you just want to use it for recipes.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nWhen it calls itself a \u201cGoogle Home Hub,\u201d it truly means it, providing loads of smart home control. With a simple command, \u201cHey Google,\u201d you can make calls, check the weather, or link up with Google Photos and have it double as a digital photo frame. With its smart speakers, you can easily jam out to music on, say, YouTube Music or Google Play Music.\r\n\r\nIt can also be a home security display. With compatible security cameras, steam live feed to the Google Nest Hub. Much of these features can be controlled through the Google Home app.\r\n\r\nUnfortunately, the Nest Hub is one of the most restrictive smart home devices compared to something like the Lenovo Smart Display or Amazon Echo Show. This is because it\u2019s only limited to Google devices; Amazon\u2019s Echo Dot is out of the question.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Google Nest Hub has a very pleasing design, built with a 7-inch display. That\u2019s big enough to stream YouTube videos while you cook. The speakers are built around the stand itself. With ambient EQ, sensors will adapter to the ambient lighting and adjust screen brightness accordingly.\r\n\r\nWhat its design doesn\u2019t incorporate is a camera, unlike other smart displays like the Echo Show 5, which excludes the option to make videos. If you want a camera, you\u2019ll have to upgrade to the Google Nest Hub Max.\r\nValue\r\nThe Google Nest Hub has a lot of features packed into its small dimensions. Given how well it can fit into all kinds of roles\u2014voice calling, a photo frame, or just a nice little smart home hub\u2014it has excellent value. This is especially true given how affordable it is. And since it\u2019s easy to get all set up, you\u2019ll have it controlling your home in no time. But this is only true if you like Google considering the restrictions. It pairs wonderfully with a Nest Learning Thermostat.\r\nGoogle Nest Hub Review Wrap Up\r\nThe Google Nest Hub provides the perfect opportunity to bring together other smart home devices in your house, provided they\u2019re compatible. It doesn\u2019t matter if you use iOS or Android, so long as you lean into Google Assistant, this device is for you. It\u2019s affordable, easy to use, and easy to set up. It doesn\u2019t have a camera but its bigger brother, the Hub Max, does.
