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 next step in Google's evolving smart home


The Home Hub – now the Nest Hub – adds a screen to the standard smart speaker formula

Google Home Hub review


Google's smart home offering, called Google Home, arrived later than the popular Amazon Echo range of connected home products. But, in our opinion, they're just as good.

Cheaper than Echo Show Google Photos integration Innovative Home View UI Music on-demand

Smaller screen Limited video calling Weak audio

If you’re more interested in controlling your smart devices than you are watching movies or making video calls, the Google Home Hub makes a compelling claim to be the center of your smart home.

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


The Google Assistant centre for your smart home: the Nest Hub is the always connected central point to control smart devices, watch YouTube and more.

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 Nest 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


With the Nest Hub (formerly known as the Home Hub), Google finally has its own smart display, giving you another way of interacting with its handy Assistant.

Google Home Hub review: The perfect addition to your smart home


Google's smart screen is rough around the edges but still a fine smart display for your home

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

Low-resolution display ; Average sound quality

Bar a few small gripes with the way its software works – it seems impossible to clear recipes and videos you’re finished with manually, for example – my overall experience with the Home Hub has been overwhelmingly positive.

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 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.
