Owners of the Nest Hub Max are now seeing the "Look and Talk" feature that Google promised in May, allowing them to control the device without saying "Hey Google."
An upcoming software update will remove the feature that allowed Google's smart display to bridge between your smart lock and your router.
During COVID, Google slowed down the rotation speed and lowered resolution quality for its ambient display on Nest Hub and Chromecast products. That practice is officially being reverted today.
Google might be close to releasing a new camera sensing feature that will enable Nest Hub Max owners to activate Assistant just by looking at their smart display.
Google is rolling out Assistant's incognito-style feature to nine additional languages over the next few months, along with other online safety updates.
Google Meet gains Companion Mode, a new feature that lets users join meetings using a secondary device like the Nest Hub Max or other dedicated Meet hardware.
Google has improved on the original Hub in every possible way, without sacrificing any of the things which made the original so good.
