Google Home Hub Review: Smart Home Made Easy

Google Home Hub Review: Smart Home Made Easy

Google assistant gained support for the Hindi language in March.

Google's latest smart device, the Home Hub has received a release date of Monday 22nd October 2018. Luckily, the user with the Home Hub will get to see the other caller. Amazon has also done well to attract developers to the Alexa platform and it has a much larger number of skills or apps for its voice assistant compared to Google, although that gap is closing. The conclusion is supported by other data: 58 percent of users say they have two or more smart speakers at home, while 62 percent use a smart speaker in the family room. The smart speaker with display that was launched earlier this month, does not ship with a front-facing camera leading to speculations it will not support video calls.

It was a poll of 1,011 people and showed, not surprisingly, the resilient popularity of Amazon's Echo speaker (which has a roughly 23 percent market share among the installed base of smart speakers in the US), as well as Google trying to elbow its way up the rankings, too. Users were not able to interact with their smart speaker in Hindi. This is an interesting feature since Duo is a video calling application designed by Google and the Home Hub lacks a camera sensor to support such a feature.

Apart from enabling Hindi language support, Google has also revealed that it has enabled Duo calls on the Home Hub.

Tap the Account section from the bottom right corner of the app interface.

Google notes that Duo on Home Hub will not enable video calls but support for Duo calls reveals that recipients will be able to see your profile picture. We can anticipate more clarity on Duo calls available through the Home Hub sometime in the coming future since the device has just gone on sale in the US. It comes in Chalk, Charcoal, Aqua, and Sand colour options.
