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.

Jupiter’s Europa might be a spiky, unsafe place to land a ship
Being one of the most promising planet moons that could host life , the study's findings may not prove to be good news. Sometime in the early 2020s NASA is planning on launching an orbiter to Europa called the Europa Clipper .

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.

Coric ousts Wawrinka in Shanghai opener
He said Kyrgios looked "tired and jaded" at this stage in the season and that brings out the worst in him. Four American players pulled off upsets at the Shanghai Masters on Monday.

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.
