Review of the Google Nest Hub

Introduction

Google brings in the Nest Hub to Singapore a couple of weeks ago. You probably have seen it in the stores and thought that it was a photo frame.

It may look like a photo frame but it offers more than just that. We unboxed it and here is what we see.

 

The package consists of the actual “photo frame” with an embedded speaker and microphone. It hash a volume up / dn on the right and a circular power connector (which is non standard micro USB). There is no battery inside, so you will need to be connected to the mains.

Setting it up for the first time is straightforward too. You just need to power it up, use your Google Home App and search and add device, enter a pin code and you are done. The method is just like how you add chromecast or the Home Mini to your network.
