Google Home Hub vs. Amazon Echo Show: Smart Display Showdown

11 October 2018, 09:56 | Casey Mitchell

We already know that Google's offering features a swipe-down gesture that brings up a "home view" control panel that now isn't found on the third-party devices.

Diya Jolly, Google's VP of product management, told Ars Technica that the Home Hub uses software based on the Google Cast platform - not Android Things OS.

Additionally, Google has brought a tighter integration with Google Photos into the mix.

Another user called G-Eazy the "American cheese if cheeses, or like the boxed wine of wines, or some other s**ty thing". The Mean Tweets segment started on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2012.

One other pretty significant difference between the Home Hub and other Smart Displays is what's found under the hood. As you can see from the image above, you can use it to guide you through cooking something. Side-stepping any potential mishaps that could come along with an internet-connected camera feels like the right decision.

GoogleHow does Google Home Hub work? Google Photos automatically adds new photos, avoiding duplicates and blurry shots, and you can share your live album, so when that person sets up their Home Hub, they'll see your album. From a hardware standpoint, this is still just a Google Home speaker with a screen, not that different from Lenovo and JBL's first swing at the segment. "It also generates quick actions for important features across your home with immediate access to key experiences like turning on and off smart lights, viewing your cameras, and broadcasting messages to your other Google Home devices, Google notes on its blog".

Aside from slight software or feature differences between the Google Hub and now available smart displays, the real star is the single, cohesive interface Google is bringing to the smart home here. You can control over 10,000 types of smart home devices from over 1,000 popular brands. And while we're at it, let's throw in the Amazon Echo Spot, considering it's closer in price to the Hub than the Show and also earned an Editors' Choice from us. Also, when you buy Google Home Hub, you'll get six months of YouTube Premium on us, so you can enjoy YouTube Music as well as all of YouTube ad-free.

Additional Rs 1000 cashback will be offered on all pre-paid orders as Amazon Pay Balance only on the 9th & 10th of October. The second-generation Amazon Echo Plus will be available for Rs 11,999, or one can consider the Amazon Echo at Rs 6,999.

GoogleHow much is Google Home Hub? It only costs $149, which is about what you'd expect. You can get it in Chalk, Charcoal, Aqua, or Sand colours. Indeed, Google will likely sell customers on the benefit of having multiple Hubs around the house. It'll be in stores from 22 October in the USA and UK.

Pre-orders are open now.
