Google Home Hub Is An Amazon Echo Show Rival Coming This Fall

  • Google Home Hub Smart Display Speaker

The Google Home Hub can pair with compatible home appliances such as lights, TVs, home cameras, and more.

The smart assistant war has been raging on for several years now between Google and Amazon.

Android Authority notes that the price of the Google Home Hub will be at $149.

RENDERS APPEARING TO SHOW the forthcoming Google Home with screen expected to be launching along with the Pixel 3 next month have surfaced online.

As luck would have it, today MySmartPrice has scored pictures of the "Google Home Hub", a product that is clearly Google's flagship hardware for its Smart Display software.


Following the Amazon Echo, the next-most popular devices were the Alibaba Tmall Genie (with 800,000 shipments) and the Google Home (800,000 shipments).

Google is apparently getting ready to launch its very own smart display: The company may soon unveil a new device dubbed the Google Home Hub that combines a voice-controlled smart speaker with a touch screen display, according to newly leaked product information.

The display is 7-inches in size with thick bezels around it. For one thing, Google's Home Hub apparently features a smaller display, suggesting that it will appeal less to people looking to watch Netflix and more to the smart speaker crowd.

Just like other Google Home devices, the Home Hub will only work when connected to a wall switch judging by the power cable at the back. Now, Google is reportedly working on a fourth addition, the Home Hub, which recently leaked out. While this might seem like a poor business strategy, remember that Google holds certain features exclusive to the Home that aren't available on third-party Assistant speakers. It would integrate with its Nest smart camera for example, and you could ask it to show your front door, or Google Photos and ask it to show you your photos from Hawaii, all via voice.
