Google Nest Hub with Google Assistant - Chalk
- Does not do Continued Conversation
from Guelph on June 30, 2019
I bought the Google mini at the same time and I have discovered that continued conversation does not work with this Hub. I researched it and found that other people are reporting this and Google is working on it but it looks like this has been an issue since day one. If you’re wondering... what is continued conversation? It is when you ask a question and then you can ask a follow up question without having to say ‘Hey Google’ every time. It will continue listening to you until you say something like OK thank you or done. For example you can say hey Google how’s the weather today? It will then listen for a follow up question and you can then say ‘and what about tomorrow’?. With this hub you have to say hey google every time. This is something that is really amazing once you start using this on a regular basis. Google home mini and regular Google Home Google Home Max do this without a problem. I can only confirm that for sure the Google home mini does do this. I’ll be returning this. In the US they just released a google home hub nest max.
- Very nice!

We were hesitant to get one of these as we thought the screen seemed rather small and we were hoping to be able to get the bigger Google Home Hub Max instead but given that the Max is not available in Canada any time soon, we decided to try out the standard Google Home Hub and we were pleasantly surprised! We have ours in our bedroom on my wife's vanity. It replaced the Google Home Mini and the alarm clock we had there. This does both those functions. At night, the screen turns into an alarm clock and during the day, it works as communication to our smart home and my wife can use it to watch videos while getting ready for work. We own most Google products out there and I can say that the quality of the speaker falls between the Google Mini and the Google Home. Better than the Mini, almost as loud as the Home, nowhere near the Google Max though :P Think of the Google Home Hub as a Google Home speaker with a display screen. Simple as that. We're now thinking of getting another Google Nest Hub for the kitchen :)

Love the product. It's a little disconcerting to read how much and how often it's being discounted in the USA but not here in Canada. Bundling with a Home Mini is more prevalent than a lower price. I have five of the"free" home minis and that's enough. I live near the border and would consider another Hub for the home office upstairs ... but not at the price I paid, now I know it's so much cheaper over the bridge in NY State ...even with exchange rates.
- So far it's been great!

I purchased this thinking it would link with my ring doorbell camera but it doesn't and that's the reason for the 4 stars, other than that it's a great item.

Excellent hub; great features. Too bad it is mainly Nest compatible whose devices are expensive.

I just got the hub. Very easy to set up and very user friendly. It will display all my photos and play youtube videos. It also displays weather. So far this is all I have tried. Very pleased. Had to give the hub 5 stars. I'd say a must have. Ultea cool.
