  • Google Launches Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL Smartphones, Connected Speaker With Screen

Google has made its own version of the Amazon Echo Show.

At the Google hardware event yesterday, the company officially launched the Google Home Hub.

Now, this device is unique compared to other displays, because it doesn't come with any cameras. You see, Google wants this to be a product you place on your nightstand - or some place like that - and still feed comfortable. Pricing, Availability, and Expectations By all early impressions, the Google Home Hub doesn't exactly revolutionize the smart screen space.

Google's playing catch-up with Amazon and Lenovo when it comes to smart displays, but overall the Home line of smart speakers is leading the market. Google has fitted an ambient light sensor so that the display is just right, whether it is night or day. It also has soft rounded corners, and is created to sit on a range of surfaces, such as the kitchen counter or nightstand, according to Google. Home Hub is the newest member of the Google Home family, joining Home, Home Mini, and Home Max. The smart display wars are only just starting, but choosing security and privacy over more features could ultimately serve Google well.

Google's done a good job at cutting away at the head start Amazon had with the Echo and Alexa - and the Home Hub means that Google has an answer to all of Amazon's hardware.

GoogleWhat are the technical specs? For voice commands the device has a 2 mic array. If you don't have the Home App you can download it below and then start spamming on that update button.

Google is putting a large emphasis on people being able to use the Google Home app as a one-stop-shop for their entire home.

Google Home Hub doubles as a photo frame. It allows the screen to automatically adjust to match the lighting in the room, so photos on Google Home Hub will blend in with the room, too. "The 7" screen is like a floating display, the right size to fit on any surface and big enough to enjoy your photos from across the room.

One of our favourite features is the easily accessible smart home controls menu. The devices also have upgraded camera technology, which includes a feature called NightSight specially designed for flash-free shots in low-light conditions.

Home view lets you control all of your internet of things devices with one clean interface. It also allows users to check on all compatible smart devices even when they're away from home, and the new multi-user support allows everyone under the same roof to control smart devices in the house via the Google Home app.

GoogleHow much is Google Home Hub? That could be Google being embarassed about all the leaks, but it could also be Google's way of hinting that there's something exciting coming tomorrow that we don't know about.

The Google Home Hub, competing against Amazon's Echo Show, was unveiled at a NY media event at which the tech giant also announced its upgraded Pixel 3 smartphone and a new tablet computer dubbed Pixel Slate. Google's devices will be available starting October 18. It is available to pre-order and will ship from 22 October.
