Google launches Google Nest Hub 2nd Gen appliance in India, starting today. The second-generation smart display from the search giant also has multi-room control, making it easier to group multiple cast-enabled Nest devices. Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) is constructed using recycled materials.
The smart home device is priced at Rs 7,999 and comes in Chalk (white) and Charcoal (dark grey) colors.
Google Nest Hub 2nd Gen availability
Google’s latest smart display is available to purchase from Flipkart, Reliance Digital, and Tata Cliq. Google mentions that the new Nest Hub will be available through more retail outlets later this year. It is available to purchase starting today, January 12.
Google is also running a limited period launch offer, whereupon purchasing a Nest Hub from the said stores will let you buy a Nest Mini smart speaker for Re 1. The offer will be live until January 26, 2022, till stocks last.
Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) features
The second-generation Google Nest Hub features an edgeless display, and when not in use, doubles up as a digital photo frame. The edgeless display also has a floating design with no visible housing plastic in the front.
As for the audio, it features the same audio technology as Google Nest Audio. It also has support for Apple Music, Gaana, JioSaavn, Spotify, and YouTube Music. Furthermore, users can also stream video content via YouTube and Netflix. The Google Assistant now has a third microphone to hear users better.
It functions similar to any other smart home device, where it recognizes your voice and performs said actions. In addition to the usual music and video streaming, the Nest Hub features a multi-room control. This allows one to connect with other cast-enabled devices such as speakers and displays for easy access.
For privacy, the new Nest Hub, like its forerunner, does not come with a camera attached to the panel. Users can turn off the microphone by simply sliding a hardware switch on the backside. Things like Guest mode and recent activity can also be deleted via single voice command.
Users will be able to delete all their recordings by simply saying things like “Ok Google, delete everything I said last week”. Google doesn’t retain users’ audio recordings on the device.
