Google Nest Hub Hands-Free Smart Speaker with 7 inch Screen Chalk
Excellent Addition to Smart Home Products
Ordered this for recommendation of our sons. Set up in our kitchen/family room, where we have it showing our photo albums (via Google Photos), or playing music from Spotify and radio from Tune-in.
It sits just below the base of a tv screen and the picture and sound quality are better than we might have expected. As indicated in the title, we can use it to voice control our smart light bulbs and plugs. My wife also uses the facility to search for recipes, which she can save for future viewing.
All in, a great purchase.
Fun to use
I was looking for a basic bluetooth speaker and decided to try the Nest Hub to get some extra functions. Turned out to be a good choice. Easy to set up and use, it has lots of playful features and the sound is ok.
I bought this for my elderly mother to use as a tool to play music and to enable us to do video calls (the phone is actually becoming a little tricky for her to use). However please note that if you're buying it for calling it only works with Google Duo (to the best of my knowledge) which is free to download from the App Store.
There's plenty on it that we haven't used. For example pictures – in the future I'll get one of my more tech savvy children to set this up and upload some pictures.
It's relatively straightforward for a reasonably tech savvy person to set up.
Whilst it makes most of my mother's requirements it would be great if it linked to more apps. However it's a pretty good too.
