  • Google Home Hub is all about simplifying the smart home experience

Along with the launch of new Google hardware this week, there are many Google Assistant updates on the way.

It's clear Google is continuing to go all-in as an "AI first" company. This hardware event didn't really bring hardware that amazes, but the integration of that hardware with Google's software and AI really creates something bigger than the device. Catch up in four minutes with this video!

And suggested responses will appear on the display: Tap one and it will be announced to your visitor, so they hear, "Sorry, we're not interested" when a salesperson is trying to hawk their wares. Keep in mind though, that both of those devices have larger screens than the 7-inch display on the Google Home Hub. However, at some point in the future most (if not all) of these updates will roll out to capable Android devices. That's why Google is now providing a few Kits and Bundles to make that choice easier. Those of you who passed on the new Google devices should also check out the list because you'll likely eventually see these features (and will just have to be jealous of early adopters in the meantime).

In a briefing with Google Australia yesterday it was confirmed that the Home Hub does indeed support their Duo calling app. No more app switching!

Google says that its new smartphones, smart speakers, and Smart Displays come with Digital Wellbeing built-in. It's hard to believe we're already at the third anniversary of Google's emergence as a true ...
