The Max is Google’s top-of-the-line display
The Nest Hub Max has a camera (which the regular Nest Hub does not), a 10-inch HD screen and stereo quality speakers.
Most people don’t have it (yet!), but there are some amazing things you can do if you have one because the camera opens up a lot of cool features…
- Controlling Google Assistant with hand gestures. You can use your hands to control the Hub, without saying a word or even touching the display. (For instance, if you’re watching a video, you can pause by looking at the screen and holding up your hand! How cool is that!)
- Face Match. This is like Voice Match on steroids! Google can recognize your face and show your specific calendar.
- It doubles as a smart home security camera. So you can easily check in on your house without buying an actual security camera. You can even get full-time video recording with Nest Aware.
- Video conferencing and calls. You can do video calls via Google Duo, Google Meet or Zoom. (You can set this up by tapping your personal icon in Google Home app, then choosing Assistant settings, then Voice and Video calls and following the prompts.)
