Ingolstadt, 08.05.2019: Google certainly knows how to make hardware, too! It’s already proved its abilities in this department with its smartphones, smart speakers and the media player Google Chromecast. And now it’s come up with a pioneering smart display for networked homes. Google Nest Hub is the name of this ingenious device, which is a combination of a voice-activated speaker and a tablet-sized display. The user is served both acoustically and visually – with information, entertainment and anything else Google Assistant has to offer. Google Nest Hub will be available from MediaMarkt’s and Saturn’s online shops as well as all their German stores from 28 May 2019. Customers have been able to pre-order the Google Nest Hub exclusively from MediaMarkt and Saturn since 00:01 on 8 May – and by doing so can secure an attractive free gift into the bargain: a Google Chromecast!

Product development was a closely guarded secret, but now the guesswork is over. Google Nest Hub is the name of Google’s latest coup. The first audio-visual system for the home to feature the voice-controlled Google Assistant, it responds in seconds when asked about what’s on, the weather or traffic news. With Google Assistant being connected to the internet, it can provide all sorts of information – and it even makes a brilliant interpreter! Furthermore, it delivers entertainment of any kind. Voice control is all it takes to watch videos on YouTube or listen to your favourite songs from YouTube Music, Spotify, Deezer and other providers. If you store your private photos on Google Photos, you can also view them at any time. In addition, Google Nest Hub can link up to other compatible smart devices in the home by Wi-Fi and control them through a dashboard. It thus acts like a command centre by enabling you to keep tabs on all connected devices such as computers, televisions, speakers and smart household appliances on its display.

Pre-orderable since 8 May for €129 plus free Google Cromecast

In addition to its smart capabilities, Google Nest Hub also features a simple, ergonomic design. The slim, 7-inch touchscreen is slightly slanted in front of the speaker, and the picture and sound quality are excellent. The device is available in a choice of colours (chalk or carbon) for €129. Those pre-ordering the device from MediaMarkt and Saturn from May 8 will also qualify for an exclusive free gift – a Google Chromecast streaming media player, which they can use to conveniently beam content from their smartphone to their TV and watch it on the big screen.
