Deal: Nest Hub (2nd Gen) only in $49.99 at Best Buy

The Google Nest Hub 2, or second generation as the tech giant calls it, is Google’s latest smart display and like the previous version, which was called the Google Home Hub before the name was changed to the Google Nest Hub, is being billed by Google as the perfect smart display at the bed.

While that claim was a little far-fetched in the case of the original model, Google might feel it has a stronger case this time because unlike every other smart display it’s on On the market, the new Google Nest Hub can track your sleep.

This smart display is the first from Google to feature Soli radar technology, already used in the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones, which allows you to wave and “tap” in the air in front of the smartphone to enable certain controls, like playing or pausing music.

The Google Nest Hub (2nd gen) also offers these features, but the technology is also used to monitor the slightest movement, e.g. B. the rise and fall of your chest as you breathe, so the device can monitor how much sleep you’re getting and whether it’s uninterrupted.

The Google Nest Hub 2 has the same “floating display” design as the previous iteration, with a 7-inch screen set at an angle on an oval base and available in four different colors. An Ambient EQ feature automatically brightens or darkens the screen based on the ambient light in the room, so it’s not a glowing beacon lighting up your room when you’re trying to sleep if you decide to use it on your bedside table.

When you’re not using the smart display, it shows a clock face or it can be used as a digital photo frame, providing your albums from Google Photos. You can also watch Netflix and Disney+ on the 7″ screen or listen to various streaming services through the speaker.

While Google claims the new Hub offers 50% better bass than its predecessor, don’t expect booming, room-filling sound – it’s enough if you use it for background audio, though. Likewise, the screen quality won’t blow you away, but if you want a larger screen than your smartphone to run videos in the background, it will do the job.

Google Assistant is built into the smart display and allows you to set timers, get the latest weather or news headlines and even control your smart gadgets like smart lights or smart plugs with your voice. In addition to an audible response to questions and commands, additional information is displayed on the screen. For example, ask about the weather and you’ll see an hourly breakdown alongside Google Assistant, which will tell you the current temperature.
