The Google Nest Hub arrived in Europe in 2019, and while we generally liked it, over time Google’s smart screen experience has solidified with continuous improvements to the software, from an interface more advanced when receiving integrations with streaming platforms like Diseny + or Netflix.
The company decided to present its second generation with several key improvements and an absence that is very difficult to justify.
New Google Nest Hub: 4 key improvements and 1 fatal error
If you liked the original Nest Hub in terms of design, its successor is pretty much the same, with the novelty that the speaker fabric is now available in 4 colors: classic chalk and charcoal, in addition to the colors. coral and blue. These speakers, although they look the same, stand out for getting 50% more bass power, an improvement that isn’t bad at all.
As a smart speaker, the new generation has a bit more intelligence by incorporating a dedicated processor to recognize various commands without an internet connection, although it only works in the United States.
As a third addition we have the incorporation of Soli, the sensors to perform gestures in the air than the Pixel 4. On a smart screen, it brings a lot of added value and it never hurts.
Another of Soli’s abilities is the ability to observe yourself while you sleep to analyze your sleeping patterns. As this is a radar capable of detecting any type of movement, Google wished to take advantage of its capabilities in this feature.
Soli is great, but in this model Google left out something basic, and that is the camera for video calls. Considering the context in which the original model was launched, it was understandable to some extent that it didn’t have a camera for video calling (and even so, I threw it out myself to give it to my mom and we ended up with a Lenovo Smart Display. 8), but after the 2020 experience, it’s hard to justify that the second-gen Nest Hub still doesn’t have a built-in camera for making calls with Duo.
While it doesn’t surprise us either, we’re used to this when it comes to hardware Google gives us one lime and another sand. More in Europe, a country in which for the moment will not be for sale yet.
