Google's New $150 Home Hub Does A Lot Of Things You Probably Don't Need


The Google Home Hub, which debuted last month and costs $150, is the first Google Home device with a screen. It's intended to serve as a hub for all your smart home devices, a place to watch YouTube videos, and a visual portal into your schedule, the weather, and nearby traffic. Oh, and it has Google Assistant built in, too. The device has a 7-inch touchscreen display, and is less than 5 inches tall and 7 inches wide. The Home Hub has a small footprint, so it fits nearly anywhere you want it to, including a nightstand, kitchen counter, or even on the bathroom vanity. The Home Hub has an LCD display, which is generally considered slightly inferior to the high-end OLED displays that come on devices like Google's new Pixel 3 phone.
