Nest Hub Max with the Google Assistant is a device that helps busy families stay in touch and on track. It enables them to leave video messages and make video calls. Nest Cam is a great way to check in on home when you’re away. It also allows users to share reminders and to-dos with others.

Google Home Hub is an easy way to get answers about the weather, traffic, finances, and more. With its built-in Google Assistant, you can control your smart home devices and discover new things to do with your phone or tablet.

Google let third-party manufacturers develop the first Google Assistant smart displays. These included the JBL Link View and the Lenovo Smart Display.

The company didn’t release its home hub (Nest Hub) until months later, and while it is certainly less expensive than those third-party options, we are not impressed by its sound quality and lack of a camera.

Nest Hub Max: Price

The Google Nest Hub Max is a $229.99 smart display with a bigger screen and stereo speaker drivers. It also has a camera for video calls and gesture controls.

The Google Home Hub isn’t the most impressive smart display on the market, but it’s a useful option for those who want a more attractive smart display than the one that came before.

We’ve been fans of the original Amazon Echo since it first launched in late 2014. It’s always been a great speaker and smart control center, but its 6-inch height made it a little awkward to fit on a desk or side table. The new Echo Show, which costs $229.99, is much more attractive.

The Bottom Line

Google’s senior vice president of hardware, Rick Osterloh, announced that it would be merging its two hardware teams: Nest and Google Home.

All of Google’s smart home devices (except Google Home Max, Google Home, and Google Home Mini) will carry the Nest monicker. This will make company branding slightly less confusing. It also allows Google to imbue its smart home tech with an arsenal of new capabilities.
