Introducing Pixel 3, Pixel Slate & Google Home Hub

Google and Nest are getting together to create what they are calling a thoughtful home.

Google Home Hub was designed to fit into any room. There is no camera. The screen adjusts to ambient light, and turns off at night. Hub was designed to work with everyone in your home. Voice match allows it to work with anyone in the family.

YouTube  and YouTube Music have been optimized for Hub. 6 months of YouTube Premium is included with the purchase of Hub.

You can set filters to keep kids safe.

Home View allows you to see all of your devices in your smart home. It can be used with touch or voice. The Google Home App has the same controls as Home View so you can control your home from your phone.

Google Home Hub is deeply integrated with Nest products. Home View allows you to control 2 Million devices from over 1,000 vendors.

Home Hub works as a photo frame when it is not in use through Google Photos. They are introducing Live Albums so you can select the photos of people you want to see, and Live Albums will find all the photos of those people and add them, including new photos. You can share these albums with others.

Google Home Hub is $149.
