Google Nest Hub Max Release Date, Cost and What We Expect

In its battle with Amazon Alexa for smart home supremacy, Google has let other companies add its voice-powered Google Assistant into their own smart speakers.

At Google IO this year the Assistant team announced that Google Home devices would be able to control devices directly on your network via the Local Home SDK, and according to their developer documentation page the SDK is now publicly available for developer testing and feedback. Thanks to its small size and low price, the Google Home Mini is great for getting Google Assistant at an affordable price, while the standard Google Home is the best all-around smart speaker of the bunch, and the Google Home Max is ideal for those who want top audio quality. However, it lacks most smart display-specific features, like video playback and the Home View dashboard.

Other devices discounted at Walmart as part of the same "Google Week" sale include a $25 Home Mini ($24 off), $69 Google Home (down from $99), and a $60 Google Smart TV Kit containing a Chromecast and Google Home Mini (which would normally be worth a combined $74). On the off chance that you didn't have the foggiest idea, the real selling Nest items were there a Nest Cam, which is an indoor surveillance camera. FYI, no Google smart devices are sold on Amazon.

This facial acknowledgment highlight permits the Nest Hub Max to identify when you are in the room, and afterward, it gives you data that you need.

The Google Nest Hub smart display also has the Google Assistant built into it, but with the screen, it can show information like your route to work, the weather, YouTube videos, and more. You can pick the shade of the base, which is either chalk or charcoal. You can't pre-order it for now. Those of you who need to purchase the Nest Hub Max in the US, do it from the Google Store, Best Buy, Target, Home Depot, and different retailers.
