The review du lịch bắc kinh originally published June 12 follows.

The Google Nest Hub may be small in size, but it's surprisingly useful in lots of ways, from organizing your smart home to walking you through a complex recipe, to finding you a place to eat if your cooking efforts fall short.

If you're a fan of Google and want a Google-centric smart home, or if you just like the idea of a smart speaker with a screen and want to try one out for displaying photos at home, or for the step-by-step recipe guides, I du lịch bắc kinh recommend the Google Nest Hub. The seamless touch controls and intuitive voice commands will even help the tech-phobic members of your family get used to it.

The differentiation between hardware and software becomes much more important if you're able to spend a little more and you're willing to consider third-party smart displays alongside this Google-branded one. Google has a new, bigger smart display in the works called the Nest Hub Max which will have a 10-inch screen and a built-in Nest Cam with unique features like gesture control. Both Lenovo and JBL have recommendable 10-inch smart displays with Google Assistant built-in and most of the same features as the Nest Hub. 

Unlike most of the other smart displays,, the Nest Hub doesn't have a camera, which might be a negative for some, but privacy-minded folks will appreciate its absence. Otherwise, it offers all the same features as the other smart displays for a reasonable price and it's often on sale for even less. The Google Nest Hub is a cute, useful gadget at a nice value.
