Launch of Google Nest Hub at Google’s office in Singapore.

The Google Nest Hub is essentially the Google Home speaker – with a screen

So in addition to interacting with it purely through voice, you can now view information on the screen and interact with whatever is on the display with the usual touch-screen actions.

And the screen enables the Google Nest Hub to function as a photo frame showing photos from your Google Photos account, and serve as a table-top clock displaying the time, and setting off alarms to wake you up in the morning.

But most significant is the ability for the Google Nest Hub to function as the hub (yes, there’s a reason why it’s called by that name) of your smart home – displaying the status of the compatible smart devices within your home, and enabling you to interact and control those devices through voice or touch.
