Google launches Echo Show rival with Home Hub

Google Home Hub - Google Assistant With A Display

The Home Hub comes in four colours - Chalk, Charcoal, Aqua and Sand.

So now overall, Google is all ready to make the dream of Smart Home a reality with its app.

At the time, I thought it a bit of an odd proposition.

This isn't just a war smart display/smart speaker devices. I hope you all enjoy the update. That's a plus from a privacy perspective, although Lenovo and JBL do provide a physical camera cover.

Much has been made of Google's decision to keep a single-lens camera on the back of its new third-gen Pixel phones. Apart from these features, Google Assistant can now be launched from the Google Home app itself. Furthermore, Google Home users are getting the ability to increase or decrease playback speed of news and podcasts, a feature that was only available for audiobooks previously. It can control a wide array of smart home accessories and send video and audio to Chromecast-enabled gadgets.

This takes the Google Home smart speaker and gives it a screen but, unlike Facebook's Portal, no camera.

A Home View dashboard allows users to see all connected devices and control lighting, temperature and whatever systems may be in the home. But which one should you buy? Apart from Google even security products from Nest, August etc are being added. Just like with smartphones, these devices are all an extension of the Android/Qualcomm partnership-they run Android Things on Qualcomm's SD624 Home Hub Platform.

And suggested responses will appear on the display: Tap one and it will be announced to your visitor, so they hear, "Sorry, we're not interested" when a salesperson is trying to hawk their wares. When Google created its smart display software, it also came up with a turnkey solution for OEMs.

Google's own smart display has officially arrived in the $149 Google Home Hub, and Google Assistant has never been smarter. If you want to video chat, get the Echo Show - but if you find the idea of a webcam in your bedroom creepy, get the Home Hub.

Google's announcement of its Home Hub will bring the idea of a screen-equipped smart speaker to the forefront of Australian consumers' minds heading into Christmas. The display measures 7-inches, and features an Ambient EQ light sensor to adjust the display brightness according to the available light in the room.
