Starting today, Nest Hub and Hub Max will get ultrasound presence sensing

Google's smaller Home Nest Hub doesn't come with a camera as the company initially wanted to avoid people from believing it would spy on them. Still, with the launch of the camera-equipped Nest Hub Max, it was clear it noticed customers are comfortable with trading their privacy for a plethora of features. Among other things, the Hub Max offers gesture control through its camera, which lets you play and pause media by raising a hand. Now Google is adding a new ultrasonic sensing feature that allow both the smaller and the bigger Hub to react to nearby people without the use of a camera.

Google testing 'Move to' casting controls on Nest Hub

Google's decision to run different software on its Nest smart displays has led to a confusing jumble of features. Some displays have features the others don't, and Google is always testing something or another that further muddies the waters. Today, Google has started rolling out a change to the Now Playing interface on the Nest Hub. Instead of volume controls, you get "Move to" casting controls.

Google deals on Home and Nest include $25 Home Mini, $238 Nest Cam Outdoor 2-pack

One of the constants in consumer societies is deals. As long as companies exist and make products, they'll try to discount them to move some inventory and gain market share. That's even more true when it comes to the smart home, where products are often considered novelties but can also provide a strong tie-in to an ecosystem. Like Amazon, Google wants you to grab its own smart speakers and connected devices, so it keeps discounting them to lure more of us in. I have enough smart devices in my home, but if you're still looking to beef up your own setup, there are some Google deals to take advantage of now.

Google's Nest Hub could be an incredible productivity tool with a few minor updates

Smart displays are still in their infancy. While they might take inspiration from the basic internet appliances that failed to take off in the 2000s (anyone remember the Chumby One?), smart displays as we know them today started with Amazon's Echo Show. The idea of adding a screen to a smart speaker may have sounded counterproductive at the time, since they essentially are less-versatile tablets, but smart displays have been an undeniable hit with buyers.
