Google India today announced the latest addition to its #MadebyGoogle family of hardware products in India: Google Nest Hub. Powered by the Google Assistant, this is the first smart display device that brings you help at a glance — simply use your voice to get the best of Google: Search, Calendar, Maps, YouTube, Google Photos and more, right on Hub’s display.
Priced at INR 9,999 Google Nest Hub is available in Chalk and Charcoal colour variants across partner retailers including Flipkart, Croma, Reliance and TATA Cliq starting today.
Hub helps you turn the music up, then wind down
With Hub, users can enjoy music from YouTube Music, Ghana, JioSaavn, Wynk, and Spotify. Users can easily access the entire catalogue of YouTube — simply ask for how-to help videos from YouTube (“Ok Google, how do you make mango lassi?”), or check out the latest movie trailers, music videos and more. And when you are ready for bed, just say, “Ok Google, good night” to set an alarm, turn off compatible lights and TVs, and fall asleep to soothing music.
Relive the moment with Google Photos
Google Nest Hub is also a photo frame, but not your average one: It’s easy to set up, automatically refreshes the photos that are displayed and features some of your best shots. With Live Albums in Google Photos, users can relive recent memories with family and friends even while Hub is not in use. Google Photos will automatically add the best new photos of subjects like “son” or “dog” to the user-selected album, avoiding duplicates and blurry shots. Users can then share Live Album with other users so that when they set up their Google Nest Hub the photos will be added to the live album automatically — ideal for grandparents to see the little ones grow! Google Nest Hub also makes it easy to search for specific photos. Simply say, “Ok Google, show my pictures from Goa,” and just like that, users will be taken back to their vacation.
Jumpstart your morning routine
The Routines featured in Nest Hub can provide users and their family members with useful information about the day ahead. Just say “Ok Google, good morning” for a personalised, visual overview of family activities from Google Calendar, commute from Google Maps, latest reminders, the weather forecast and more. Users will also be updated on the latest local news from sources like Times Internet, NDTV, India Today, Dainik Jagran and more. And with Voice Match, up to six people can get their own personalised information.
Simplify your connected home
With Hub, everyone in the family can see and control compatible devices from a single dashboard called Home View—no more switching between multiple apps. Just swipe down, and you can dim lights, turn up the volume on the TV, and see who is outside using a smart camera. Home View lets users control more than 200 million connected devices from over 3,500 brands globally. With a simple tap or voice command, users can control products from Xiaomi, Syska lights, Oakter Plugs, Philips Hue, LG and more. Also, users can broadcast messages through all connected speakers at home. For example, just say “Ok Google, broadcast dinner’s ready!” to round up the family.
Get hands-free help in the kitchen
Get Google Nest Hub to help you prepare recipes like top chefs. Use voice to browse millions of recipes from NDTV Food, Veg Recipes of India, Archana’s Kitchen and more and start cooking, all hands-free.
Thoughtfully designed for any room
Google Nest Hub has been designed beautifully to blend into your home. Its 7-inch screen is the right size to fit on any surface and big enough to enjoy photos from across the room. With soft rounded corners, Hub fits naturally on any surface be it kitchen counter or living room. With no camera on Google Nest Hub, the smart speaker with a screen can even be placed even in the bedroom.
Google Nest Hub’s Ambient EQ light sensor, that’s placed on the top of the device, allows the screen to automatically adjust to match the lighting in the room, so photos on Google Nest Hub will blend in with the room, too. That means no glowing screen—it fits seamlessly into your home. When it’s time for bed, Hub knows to dim the screen for a good night’s sleep.
Every buyer of a Google Nest Hub will also get a Google Assistant compatible Mi Home Security Camera for free. This offer can be redeemed at Flipkart and Tata Cliq and is valid for a limited period.
