Google today announced the Google Home Hub, a new smart display that features a 7-inch screen for use in the home. The Hub features the Google Assistant and dedicated tools to help people manage their other devices, content, and accounts. The Hub uses custom fabrics, features rounded corners, and comes in four different colors. Google specifically chose to not include a camera with the device so the Home Hub can be used in bedrooms and other private spaces. Voice-based commands will let people access YouTube, play music, search for recipes, control smart home gear, and much more. An ambient light sensor on the top ensures the screen is always optimized for the lighting conditions. Google has worked to create a step-by-step guide for recipes that can be controlled via voice. The idea is to let people access the recipe even when their hands are dirty during cooking. The Hub is based Android. It is available for pre-order starting today for $149 and will reach stores October 22.
