Google announces new Home Hub, a Smart Display powered by Google Assistant

Google is leveraging its AI smarts to filter out blurry or duplicate images, with only the best photos showing up on the screen. Not really, as the hub has a tailored UI, and the Home View interface can control hundreds of thousands of devices. No, we aren't talking about a robot chopper, but rather the Home Hub, a glorified smart screen attached to a speaker.

Unlike the Amazon Echo Show, however, the Home Hub doesn't have a camera on its front face. That said, voice calling will nearly definitely return as a feature here. Google is including 6 months of YouTube Premium subscription along with Home Hub.

The Google Home Hub can be pre-ordered today for $149. Home Hub will also be accessible through the Google Home app, so you can manage these things when you're away from your smart display.

Diya Jolly, Google's VP of Product Management, said the major goal of the Hub was to make the device comfortable to use in the home.

A product like the Hub is ideal as a photo frame, and you'll be able to do just that by integrating your Google Photos albums with the device. Using the power of machine learning, Google will help you avoid embarrassment by automatically eliminating any underexposed or blurred photos in your collection. What are your thoughts on the Home Hub?

What will Google Home Hub cost?
