Google Home Hub is a device with Google Assistant at its heart. Instead of running a basic Android or Chrome OS, this device has its own unique UI, centered on Google Assistant and Google Home functionality. Google Home Hub has a pair of far field speakers, a light sensor, and a speaker in addition to its single touchscreen display.
Google revealed the Home Hub on the same day as the Google Pixel Slate and the Google Pixel 3, a smartphone that launched with its own “Pixel Stand” to allow functionality similar to that of Google Home Hub. They’re not the same, but they’ve got similar aims. This Google Home Hub device is set to do battle with the likes of Amazon Echo Show 2nd-gen, a device that’s just been reviewed by SlashGear this week, too.
Google Home Hub has a 7-inch touchscreen display and is 118mm (4.65-inches) tall, 178.5mm (7.02-inches) wide, and 67.3mm (2.65-inches) deep. This device connects to the internet with Wi-Fi and to other devices with Bluetooth 5. There are four colors available: Chalk, Charcoal, Aqua, and Sand.
