Google renames Assistant home devices, debuts $229 Nest Hub Max
08 May, 2019, 03:20
Works with Nest allowed devices like Philips Hue light bulbs to integrate directly with Nest products, and while the functionality of Works with Nest will live on with a new "Works with Google Assistant" program, it's a big change some smart home enthusiasts likely won't be very enthusiastic about.
The larger design of the Nest Hub Max should make it a better multimedia device than the Nest Hub. It has a 10-inch matte touchscreen that can adjust its color temperature based on the ambient light.
Google is launching a larger 10in version of its smart display as it attempts to supplant Amazon's Alexa as the top smartspeaker maker. It also has a camera (6.5-megapixels), which the Home Hub does not. This means you can wander around a bit and still stay in frame, flawless for use in places like the Kitchen. The lack of a camera made Google's smart display an easy, affordable way to dabble in the smart home while limiting how much privacy you were giving up. Just like the Nest Cam you can see event history, enable Home/Away Assist, and even get notifications if motion is detected.
Nest Hub Max is the first Google device to use the company's Nest branding for its smart speaker devices, extending a brand largely known for its smart thermostats to entertainment and communications devices. Google didn't say when this feature would roll out.
In addition to the USA, where sales will be offered through the official Google Store, as well as Best Buy, Target, Home Depot and "more", similarly vague United Kingdom and Australia releases are also planned.
The Google Nest Hub Max is not cheap but at the same time not exorbitant - we are in the times of two thousand dollar phones remember. This wasn't just because of it as small, it also had a less than great resolution of 1024 x 600. Although the bigger display doesn't directly add any new features, it should allow for a better experience when watching YouTube and other videos.
Google is merging Nest and Google Home hardware divisions, to that end, the original Google Home Hub has been renamed to Google Nest Hub.
