As we approach Christmas time, we’re seeing better deals on the tech you can actually use in 2021. Offers on smart home products abound, including Google and Nest Mini deals. In fact, right now, Best Buy has knocked the Google Nest Hub with 7-inch Smart Display. This little device can be the ultimate hub with which to run your home, and it’s only $70, down from its regular price of $90. A total bargain!
The Google Nest Hub is for someone looking for an efficient and versatile command center for their smart home. Part of what allows the Google Nest Hub to be exactly this is its size. Measuring only 4.65 inches by 7.02 inches by 2.65 inches, it can go anywhere — next to your bed, on a shelf, on the kitchen counter — and never be in the way. At the same time, it reaches everywhere, super easily. Using Google Assistant, the Google Nest Hub can connect you with every smart home device you own, making this device a versatile addition to your life.
Additionally, voice Match allows this device to give you reminders, provide your calendar and commute, and give you the news, right before your eyes. Using the handy 7-inch touchscreen (or your voice) you can also set alarms, make a shopping list, and of course do all your calls, whether they’re for work, with family and friends, or just to see if the hardware store is open. And, of course, like all the best smart home speakers, it can play your favorite music and podcasts.
Now, the Google Nest Hub is without a camera, a huge relief for those worried about security or their privacy being disturbed. The down side is that you can’t do video calls. This being a Google device, though, you can of course search up anything you want, which can be a lifesaver, whether you need to settle a quick argument or just figure out the weather. At the same time, the Google Nest Hub doubles as a digital picture frame, so when you’re not googling how many days are in March, you can have your favorite memories to look at.
Google has really improved its smart home control devices, and now is a great time to invest in one. Just check out the Google and Nest Mini deals. But act now and you can get the Google Nest Hub for $20 off. It’s only $70 at Best Buy, down from its original price of $90.
