Strange bug is causing all your Nest devices to pause playback when viewing a camera feed

Google's Nest line of connected smart home products includes all different kinds of devices, including smart displays, smart speakers, and smart cameras you can put anywhere in your house. They're really useful to have as they allow you monitor your home remotely and let you save video footage if something ever happens.

Your first-gen Nest Hub should now be getting its Fuchsia update

Your first-gen Nest Hub should now be getting its Fuchsia update

After being in development for years, Google's Fuchsia OS is finally ready to be used in a consumer product. Over the coming months, it will be rolled out to the first-gen Nest Hub.

Grab a first-generation Nest Hub for 50 stinkin' bucks

Smart displays are great. While it's true they don't do much a phone or tablet can't, they're designed to sit in one place without sticking out too much (which you can't say about a Fire tablet duct taped to the wall). Right now, you can pick up a first-generation Nest Hub for just $49 — about what you'd pay for an entry-level smart speaker with no screen attached.

Google Nest Hub and Sleep Sensing long-term review: I remain unconvinced

Google Nest Hub and Sleep Sensing long-term review: I remain unconvinced

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 says one in five people put that device in their bedrooms, thanks largely to the lack of a camera. The second-gen Hub still doesn't have a camera, but it does watch you. Hiding inside the almost identical chassis is a Soli radar module, which monitors your movement and breathing to track sleep. Any technology product that watches you sleep is bound to come off a little creepy, but there's more to the Hub than sleep tracking.
