Google Home Hub Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Google Home Hub review: Powerful integration with Google's services, refined smart home controls combine and a low price make this the smart speaker to beat

Easy to converse with ; Touchscreen displays extra information ; Dedicated smart home controls ; Integrated YouTube

Doesn't like G Suite accounts ; Can't play Netflix ; No webcam

Powerful, flexible and brilliantly using the screen to deliver more results, the Google Home Hub pulls in the full power of Google's services, but this isn't the best display for video and music.

Google Home Hub review: The new hub of your smart home?

 

Great design and display ; Fantastic smart home control ; Adequate sound quality ; Excellent as a digital photo display ; YouTube integration ; Excellent price

No Zigbee support built-in ; Google Home app could be a little more intuitive

If you've got compatible smart home products installed, the Google Home Hub is totally worth its cover price – and absent of any unwanted video calls/privacy issues. But if you're already invested in Amazon then it might not make sense for you....

Google Home Hub review

 

Compact, stylish and good value for money

Compact design ; Fantastic screen ; High value price point

No camera for video calls ; Limited number of apps at launch ; Lacks oomph in the bass

Google’s first screen-based smart helper is not only great, it offers real value for money

Google Home Hub review: Now available for under £100

 

Google's smart screen was already a snip at £139, and it just got even cheaper

Great value ; Control smart devices on screen ; Shows Google Photos

Low-resolution display ; Average sound quality

After all, it achieves everything it sets out to do, which is to make it easier to interact with Google Assistant and to control all your smart devices from one place. Consider its low price and that it also doubles up as a brilliant digital photo...

Google Home Hub vs Amazon Echo Show 2: Which smart screen is best?

 

It's a battle of the smart screen as the two tech giants go head-to-head

Once you factor in the contrasting prices of the duo, though, the Google Home Hub is the clear victor. Of course, it depends what features you value the most, but with an £80 saving for a device that’s largely on an even footing with the Echo Show 2,...

Google Home Hub review: Google Assistant helps this tiny screen feel powerful

 

Google's smart display is dwarfed by the Amazon Echo Show in size, but not in features.

The Google Home Hub's touchscreen is responsive and works well in combination with Google Assistant, whether you ask for help on a recipe or to check what's on your calendar. Pictures and videos look particularly crisp thanks to an ambient light sensor...

The sound quality is fine for background music, but nowhere near the level of other smart displays like the Amazon Echo Show or the JBL Link View. It's more on par with the diminutive Google Home Mini. The integration with the Nest Hello Video Doorbell...

The cameraless, petite Google Home Hub will blend into any room in your home. It's affordable, and quite useful as a digital assistant (especially in the kitchen), a photo frame and a smart home control panel.

Google unveils the Home Hub: Google's answer to the Echo Show

 

After letting third parties have first bite of the cherry, Google is ready to unveil its first smart screen device

With so little set in stone about the Google Home Hub, it’s hard to be too definitive, but it certainly seems like the company is onto a winner here. The YouTube support could be a real knockout blow to Amazon, assuming there is a market that wants its...

Google finally has its own smart display, giving you another way of interacting with its handy Assistant. It's affordable and could be super helpful. Find our more in our full Home Hub review.

Google Home Hub joins the fight to put a screen on your countertop

 

The Google Assistant-powered smart display cuts the camera and adds adaptive brightness and a smart home control panel.

Google Home Hub wants to finish the job started by the Amazon Echo

 

The continuity between the Google Home Hub and the new Google Home app could help make the smart home seamless.
