It takes digital photo frames to a whole new level, especially considering the enhancements Google Photos can bring to your collection. Photo sharing from any Nest Hub device has been possible for years, but a new interface is coming soon that streamlines the experience.

Google Nest Hub (2nd gen) review: Sweet dreams are made of Gs

Google Nest Hub (2nd gen) review: Sweet dreams are made of Gs

Google released the original Nest Hub (née Home Hub) in 2018, and we liked it even at $150. That price came down substantially, giving more people a chance to try out what was arguably the best Assistant smart display.

Google's got a new smart display, and trust me, it is new. The second-generation Nest Hub looks virtually identical to the original product, launched in 2018 as the Home Hub. This new device still lacks a camera, but it does have a Soli radar sensor for sleep tracking. Yes, the new Google smart display will watch you sleep, but the company stresses that it designed "Sleep Sensing" with privacy in mind. It also costs less than the first-gen display did at launch.
