The Nest Hub is Google’s first home assistant equipped with a screen. Boosted with Google Assistant AI, it also includes the range of internal applications (YouTube, Maps, Calendar, etc.) that its main competitor, the Amazon Echo Show, lacks.

For the first assistant with a screen, Google does a good job by presenting a Nest Hub that is packed with features and presents itself as a real connected home management tool. We regret, on the other hand, the lack of a front camera: a real plus that would have made it possible to make video calls. Also keep in mind that the Nest Hub’s screen is not the most efficient and watching movies or long videos is not recommended… Too bad for an assistant with a screen!

An alternative

The Nest Hub 2nd generation. is mainly aimed at recovering sleep extremists. This smart display has nothing more to offer than its ‘Sleep Tracking’ feature compared to the previous version, which was already very successful. This assistant is always packed with options and provides an excellent interface for operating your connected home.
