The corporate quietly up to date one in every of its help pages right this moment, detailing that the 10″ Nest Hub Max shall be obtainable September 9 for $229. After the web page was first found by Droid Life, the textual content on the location has reverted to “coming quickly.”
We’ve reached out to Google for remark.
The product is the primary launch in Google’s Nest rebrand of its sensible residence line. In comparison with the corporate’s earlier sensible show — the Google Dwelling Hub — the Nest Hub Max packs an onboard digital camera, which might operate as a safety digital camera along with enabling video calls.
One of many primary differentiating elements of the Dwelling Hub (now referred to as the Nest Hub) was its lack of digital camera, one thing that positioned it higher for privacy-conscious customers cautious to put a Google machine on their nightstand. With the rebranding and the safety digital camera repositioning, Google could have higher luck in convincing customers that it’s of their greatest curiosity to place a Google-connected digital camera of their residence.
