Good for everyday use

Good and access to information from cooking recipes, weather and map. Keeps track of your daily planner if connected to Gmail. Has good functionality from timer to accessing Spotify, YouTube etc. voice recognition is fairly smooth. If you have Google doorbell gives you clear pictures and sound. Touchscreen too. Good value for money for starting your smart home. Show details

Terrible Bluetooth integration

This is for a Gen 2, the Bluetooth integration is horrible. My Bluetooth adaptor is mains-powered so it doesn't go into power-save mode.

The Nest Hub will randomly disconnect and reconnect while there is nothing streaming. Even worse, it won't fully disconnect whether by voice command or changing the default speaker in Google Home. The annoying thing is that Home states that the Nest Hub is the default speaker, even though it's still connected to the adaptor. This means if I want to use another device with the adaptor I have to remove the power and plug it back in.

Nest Hub has had Bluetooth issues for years, but Google seem unwilling or incapable of fixing it.

Horrible

Bought it to connect to my daughters baby monitor and to play white noise. White noise fades in and out waking daughter. If I use it on Spotify, it turns off after a few hours. Freezes. Doesn’t play camera. Most of the time doesn’t understand my commands (I speak aussie English with no accent) very basic Smart Controls. Do not waste your money. I’m glad I only got this and the speakers through using points. So mad! Show details

Not perfect, but love it anyway

This Nest Hub 2nd Gen is pretty good to be honest. I use it as a clock radio, and find it really easy to set an alarm. I have it connected to my Google Home, and it works nearly flawlessly. I say nearly. For a single alarm, I can set a routine to turn the radio on when I cancel the alarm. For some reason thus does not work when you set a daily alarm, for example M,T,W,T,F. I get around this by having the alarm on at say 6:59, and then I have a routine that starts at 7:00 daily. I use both because randomly the radio routine decides not to work some days. I can also cast audio and video to it. Overall, I really like this device. Show details

A disappointment

The Nest Hub is good value for money. The speaker is good for the size and it is a very useful device. The problem with the device which Google still need to fix are, hand gestures do not work, sleep sensing does not work and the biggest problem of all is Calendar events are reported in the wrong time. For example if you have an event for 7.30am Google will report this as 9.00pm. The time on the device is correct, alarms go off at the correct time but the calendar events are reported incorrectly. This is very annoying and needs to be corrected. Show details

Great technology

Very useful to have in the office or bedroom. No camera to invade privacy either. Just let Google manage your smart home using your voice. Screen is big enough to use but not in the way. Show details
