Google Store Accidentally Reveals the Upcoming Google Home Hub

Google Home Hub's new Home View feature

With the increasing number of smart displays and smart speakers in homes, parents are getting anxious about the nearly unrestricted access their younger children might have to features and information that may not be ready for yet. You obviously can't transmit video without a camera in the Home Hub, but you can however still see video from users making a video call. Asking for the weather will give you a full forecast, and you can follow up and ask to see more.

You can do lots of other things too. This includes that notch on the Pixel 3 XL, which many were hoping is not real. there was even a rumor that Google is hiding a special Pixel 3 Ultra up its sleeve - a phone with a huge display and no notch or chin to speak of. I was told that at this time, the focus is simply YouTube Premium.

It comes in four colors: Charcoal, Aqua, Chalk, and Sand. From a hardware standpoint, this is still just a Google Home speaker with a screen, not that different from Lenovo and JBL's first swing at the segment. As the dust has mostly settled, Google thought it might be a good time to run us through some of the new features coming to Assistant on Pixel phones, new and old.

Instead of hiding the controls deep in the Google Home app, a simple swipe down from the top of the screen brings up a dashboard with all your smart devices in a quick-access fashion, allowing you to control your connected stuff easily. You can use Play Music though.

Oil extends losses as markets fall, inventories climb
The facility is the only USA port able to fully load and unload tankers with a capacity of 2 million barrels of oil. Energy Information Administration (EIA) is due to release official government inventory data Thursday at 11 a.m.

There's also better integration with Google's Nest products.

And suggested responses will appear on the display: Tap one and it will be announced to your visitor, so they hear, "Sorry, we're not interested" when a salesperson is trying to hawk their wares. I love this integration because today I have to tap my phone or ask Google to show my front door in order to see who's ringing my doorbell. Another welcome change from past year is that Google's flagship is no longer exclusive to just one telco; both Singtel and StarHub will have the phones available in stores come Nov 1. As more pictures of those people are added, Google will dynamically update the album on the Home Hub.

Google is also touting "Ambient EQ" for its own Home Hub: The light sensor is tuned to adjust the display brightness better than on the Lenovo and JBL products. The idea is to remove what Google calls the "billboard effect" where your eyes are drawn to the brightness of the display in a dim room.

The screen on the Google Home Hub looks great at 7-inches and really feels like about all you need. The official Google Store now shows a lead time of 3-4 weeks, but fingers crossed those orders will arrive on the November 1 release date. And that's exactly what the Google Home Hub is all about.
