Comment:

I already had a few Google devices (Google Home and Mini). So, I was really excited to see what more they could do with a screen. The truth is you can’t really do that much more. The screen adds as much frustration, as value to the experience.

Pros
– Simple design. Quality feel.
– Basic screens savers options contain an endless stream of beautiful art. Be careful, it is not all PG rated and there is no filter for this.
– Scrolling photo display from your Google Photos is a cool feature – it is like a cloud linked photo frame. Be careful here too, because it will display anything in the album you select (i.e. old girl friends).
– You can search your Google Photos for a person or thing and it will display. You can pull up a picture of your car, your dog, your kid, or Jim (if you tagged him in Google Photos).
– Lighting control menu lets you dim your smart lights at night without having to speak (great for sleeping babies).
– Potential for growth. Google will continue to improve this device.

Cons
– Sound quality is slightly lower than the original Google Home; bass is lacking. It is still acceptable.
– It is not an Android tablet on a stand. You are saying I know that – no big deal, but it is something that will be an issue for many. Some examples that drive me crazy: no on-screen keyboard, no web browser, no google maps, no selectable apps.
– The included apps are pretty, but don’t add much info over any other Google speaker. weather selected from the touchscreen is still read aloud and there is no radar, no pop-up list or searching by keyword, and detailed directions are sent to your phone.
– No camera = No video chats. This is clear, but why – even cheap Android tablets have hangouts and a camera.
– Limited streaming sources. Unless your device can cast – you can’t view it.
– Finding videos and music is difficult if you aren’t exact – only 5-10 options are shown if Google doesn’t understand. No option is given period if Google thinks it is right – it just starts playing.
– Only has a menu for smart lights – other smart devices are not displayed, even though Google works with them and a control can be brought up on screen by requesting a change by voice.
– I had a few weird errors in testing that required a reboot (i.e. menus getting stuck). There were also a few times when I selected an option from the on-screen menu and Google answered “I can’t help with that”.

This device works as good as the other Google devices by voice. It adds some pretty graphics, smart lighting control, and is probably the best photo frame you can buy. Some might argue that as a super smart photo frame and lighting control it has value, but it just wasn’t enough for me.

Comment:

The Google Home Hub is much like its older relatives, the Home and Home Mini, but adds a display that allows you to get more information out of your queries, provides a gateway to other Google Assistant capabilities that would otherwise only be available from your phone, and gives you a Hub to your smart connected home environment. These additions make the Google Home Hub the best iteration yet..

UNBOXING:

The unboxing experience is quite simple. In the box is a 15 power adapter and the Hub, itself. I was a bit surprised to see that the Hub does not use micro USB or USB-C. Rather, it uses a DC Power Jack. In the grand scheme of things, this device doesn’t need to connect to other hardware via USB, so it perhaps makes sense why they chose this approach. The plastic film wrapped around the display was more difficult than I’d have liked—definitely a con for this unboxing experience. It’s nitpicking, but I definitely found it annoying.

SETUP:

The setup process is mostly headache free. You’ll need to use the Google Home App from your Android or iOS device to perform the setup process. If you’ve ever performed a setup for a Chromecast, the Hub’s display will run you through the same process. Thankfully because of the display, you won’t be left wondering if you’ve done things correctly; rather, both the Hub and Google Home app will guide you through every step of the way to connect to your Wi-Fi network and even perform a bit of a tour regarding some of the capabilities of the Hub.

CAPABILITIES:

So now you’ve got your Hub set up on your Wi-Fi network! What exactly can you do with it? Well, lots! But here are some of the things I have performed with my Google Home

Ask for nearly any bit of quantifiable/numeric information (e.g. how tall is Michael Jordan?).
Ask yes/no style questions (e.g. Is Tesla a publicly traded company?)
Ask broader questions (e.g. who is the CEO of Google?)
Perform calculations.
Set timers, alarms and reminders.
Get step-by-step recipes at your own pace.
Stream Music over Spotify, Pandora, Google Play Music, YouTube Music and more. Google Home can even stream to a Bluetooth Speaker in your house if you configure it to have a ‘Default Speaker’ from the Home app.
Get the latest news from popular news outlets like NPR and CNN.
Play games that utilize your voice—different in comparison to most touchscreen games.
Control/view your connected home devices like smart lights, switches, thermostats, cameras, appliances, sprinkler systems, robot vacuums, speakers, cast devices, and more.
Order food delivery via supported companies like Starbucks or Dominos.
Request an Uber to your house.
Shop for products that are available on Google Express.

This list is by no means exhaustive, and I’m sure these capabilities will grow over time, as well. I won’t delve into all the concrete details for these capabilities, but I will say that many of these capabilities have a visual aspect in addition to their auditory aspect. The ‘Google Home’ series was originally just a smart connected home speaker without a display, so many of these capabilities were originally designed to work with just speakers, but as Google Assistant has made its way to our phones and TVs, more visual capabilities have been added, such as viewing your Google Assistant-enabled cameras, watching YouTube and even seeing multiple kitchen timers—an absolute godsend.

MY USAGE (In the kitchen):

With the addition of the touchscreen, I can now view and control many of my smart devices like my thermostat, doorbell, and smart lights.

Being able to have step-by-step recipes that are both visual and auditory makes the Hub an excellent addition for those looking to spice things up in the kitchen—which is my preferred area for the Hub. And since I’m a multi-tasker in the kitchen, I often need timers, so the new display is excellent for setting multiple timers, naming them, and also seeing their status so you can anticipate your next movement. And if your hands are clean, you can control them on the touch screen, or opt to use your voice to acknowledge the timers as they go off.

While I’m cooking in the kitchen, I’d normally listen to music on my Home speaker or watch YouTube videos on my phone, but now I can do both of these things on my Hub thanks to its loud speaker and 7” display.

SOUND QUALITY:

As far as sound is concerned, the Hub isn’t meant to compete with your Google Home Max, soundbars or other speakers. It’s really meant to be functional and decent while doing it, and it does just that. I appreciate that it is loud and clear, but it doesn’t carry the musicality I’d personally want due to my audiophile needs. The average person will be happy using it for music, but those accustomed to more expensive audio performances will likely use those systems for listening to music. And thanks to the the built-in Bluetooth, you can configure your Hub or any other Home speaker to play music on a nearby Bluetooth speaker instead of its own speaker. Since I keep a high performance soundbar near my kitchen area, I can ask my Hub to play music and enjoy music on my soundbar instead. Just set a ‘Default Speaker’ for your Hub via the Home app.

DISPLAY QUALITY:

The display is only 7” and has a resolution of 1024×600, so it’s not meant to replace your television, but instead acts as a tool for helping you out while you’re home. It gets plenty bright and also dims very well so that way it isn’t constantly illuminating a space where you’re currently vacant. It has an ambient light sensor that detects the light in the area and will automatically brighten/dim to match. The touchscreen hasn’t had any issues for me. Overall, I’m satisfied with the display, considering the price.

OVERALL:

The Google Home Hub is perfect for a lot of situations—it’s up to you to choose how you want to make use of it. I find that the Google Home Hub is meant to be used in a place where you spend a lot of time—and for me, that’s in the kitchen. But even more so, it’s meant to help you be productive, organized, informed, and entertained. And the Hub does all that with not only clear audio, but also with bright visuals. For me, it’s made my kitchen a more productive environment, as well as more fun.

Comment:

Probably one of the best little “investments” I have ever made. Most have bought this to put on their bedside table or their kitchen. But it was a little different for me. The purpose and the intent of this product for me was mainly to help assist in getting me out the door faster. So, instead I set mine up in the bathroom; where I mostly spend my time in the mornings getting ready for work. I love listening to music when I prepare for the day mainly because it helps me stay focused. And just before I jump into the shower I say, “hey google, play (fill in the blank) by (so & so).” Therefore while I am moving around, I am still able to multitask and not have to pause from what I am doing just to pick up a device to type/connect something. Then, while I am in the shower I can ask it to tell me what the weather is like and how long it will take me to get to work and so forth. It’s just a really helpful device especially for us busy bodies.

I think they are asleep at the wheel in Cupertino, CA (Apple’s headquarters) – This thing is AWESOME! Even my wife loves it – She uses it to follow along with recipes. It’s hooked up to my NEST cams, thermostat, Roomba vacuum, Hue lights – Wow! I like this so much that I ended up getting another to place next to the couch..Mainly for the doorbell feature, and then a Google Home Mini. Sound quality is good enough. You can turn up the bass in the app, but trust me, you’re not getting bass…Just a bit better sound, but I can live with it – It’s not terrible quality and definitely good enough for the kitchen. My favorite feature is when the doorbell rings – It immediately switches to the doorbell feed and if it knows there person it also announces their names. I have this synced to Pandora and it plays music perfectly. As I mentioned, I’m a huge Apple person, but this kills Siri – The Google assistant knows so much – My wife and I were testing Siri / Google and Siri just cannot get basic things correct. I’m replacing my HomePod and getting Google’s speaker (Home Max) instead, since Siri is a massive paper weight that does nothing but play music. Oh, coolest feature, you can have up to 6 users AND IT RECOGNIZES THEIR VOICE!!! So what’s cool is in the morning is shows your route to work and what’s on your calendar – I love that – Was simply to export my iCal to Google. BUY IT! You’ll love it! P.S. Apple, you have a lot of catching up to do – WAKE UP!

After much debate about which type of smart home we’d like to be, we settled on being Googlers. Without a doubt, Amazon provides a series of terrific devices with their various Echo offerings; however, after deciding what we planned to use the devices for (e.g., searching, answering questions, playing how-to videos, gathering recipes, viewing our daily schedules, weather information, and listening to music) we settled on the superior information company: Google.

We have four Google Home Minis and two Google Home Hubs (so far), and as expected, the devices and their robust functionality fit perfectly into our routines and truly enhance our lives. We no longer have to reach for an iPhone when a need for information arises. Now we merely speak to our Assistant, and quickly and easily, the information is retrieved and often sent to our phones for later review. As expected from Google, the world’s greatest data and information company, it seems every day our Assistant gets more intelligent and adds more useful functionality to enhance our lives.

We use our two Google Smart Hubs in the kitchen, the most high-traffic room in the house, and the master bedroom as the smartest alarm clock we could have ever imagined and as a replacement to our Bose Wave radio. We are also happy that these devices do not have a built-in camera like the Lenovo Smart Display, as there is never a concern for our privacy. We also love the ability to view and control our various Nest devices via the display, as we’ve found Nest to be the best smart doorbell and camera system for our needs.

Hey Google, you rock!

It will go beyond your expectations. Seriously, It was not what I thought before purchasing. It has amazing clear and crisp speaker. It feels great playing both audio and video songs. Google Assistant on this is very intelligent. I put this Google Home Hub in my living room and it responds to my voice commands given from my kitchen too! Setting timers, reminders have become very easy for me. I would definitely recommend this. And, I got a free Google Nest Mini (2nd Gen) along with this product. Not sure if it is a limited offer. Hurry up!

I was going to buy the Amazon Show 5 but when I compared it to the Google Nest, I was more interested in the Nest then the echo. I have had it for more than an month and i love using it! It has a display screen that you can watch Youtube, Disney+, Hulu and more! The mic is really sensitive so, make sure you mute when you want it to pick up on your voice, also it recognize your voice and only follows your orders.

I love the Hub. It has a great screen and it shows you everything you ask for. Gives you a ton of info and just super cool. I like it so much better than Siri. Google actually answers you with results/answers as opposed to showing web pages and making YOU search.

I love this thing. I created a home group and play music and it streams in those rooms so when I leave my bedroom and walk to the office and down to the kitchen and on the way to the livingroom. I have surround sound. The only flaw is that they will randomly stop playing, but I haven’t figured out if that’s my internet or not.
