Firstly. This device is definitely not intended as a toad or smartphone. You who think it should not buy this. This is the bridge for the smart home. Not intended to be used for browsing or watching videos or with apps.
Can both check youtube and play Spotify. But obviously no audio or visual peak experience. But no one buys this unit for this purpose. But as a photo frame, it's fun to play Google's gallery, the clock or why not your own pictures. The screen also dims nicely automatically in a dark room.
I recommend to anyone who has smart devices at home with this product.
Bought it for SEK 995. A good price I'd say for the Google Nest Hub clear,
The voice assistant is pretty good for the most part. Only you know what to ask the hub to do. It covers my entire apartment and can say commands in other rooms and the order goes forward.
I have integrated my lamps, home theater and music systems into Google Home and can be controlled with the voice or screen of "Almost".
Gadgets I control through Google Home and the hub:
Has 5 Sonos speakers connected to Google Home in 3 different rooms.
A Philips Hue System (14 light sources). However, not so complicated commands. But I have the Hue app for that and finished scenes in the Hue App. But of course you can tell Google to, for example, extinguish and light lamps in different rooms or ask that all lamps glow red or green.
An Xbox One x and my entire home theater system with LG Oled 65 inches, Yamaha amplifiers with a 5.2.4 clip atmos system with Tivo, UHD players and Apple TV4k all can be controlled through the Logitech hub with voice commands from the Nest hub, but only for those using Logitech Harmony hub multi-remote and it is only to congratulate if you bought the Nest Hub for it works clockwise.
Had some problems initially with getting the voice commands in order, but after a nice start I got everything in order. It's great to be able to just say, "Hey Google turn on Home Theater, Hey Google turn on Apple TV or Hi Google turn on Xbox" and so on. and the activity starts with the devices you programmed into Logitech.
Could only use Siri, but nice to be able to have a free-standing display that easily perceives voice as well as a nice photo frame. I like the small size of the screen.
The screen is not something I will watch on videos anyway.
You can also ask much more and get answers. Examples of the best route to work or how the weather is today. Or the latest news, set a timer or ask google not to add events to your calendar.
We're just getting started with smart homes and smart devices. Will come more advanced and even more smart devices in the future.
Google Nest Hub is a fantastic smart product at a low price to launch in the Smart Home world!
