NEW DELHI: California-based tech major Google launched the new Nest Hub with smart display on Monday at Rs 9,999.

The smart device claims to be the best companion at home. The device comes with an in-built Google Assistant, which will make communicating with the device easy. The device would require Wi-Fi connectivity and a compatible device, and will help users control certain features and gadgets.

Visual Delight
Nest Hub can transform into a digital photo frame. Once connected, the device will segregate pictures based on various themes. The device is protected under voice-control to keep visual content like pictures and videos safe.

Armed with the Ambient EQ feature, it will let the Hub adjust to the lighting depending on the ambience.

Home, Sweet Home
Users will be able to personalise their schedules, commute, reminders with voice match. Controlling compatible lights, diffusers, purifiers, cameras, TVs and other multiple devices (up to a 1,000 are permissible) from a single device will get simple. On your way back from work, you can order Hub to set the house ready for your return by asking it to perform tasks like switching on the AC, drawing the curtains.

In-House Companion
Want to know how to tie a knot or prepare your favourite meal? The Hub can show helpful videos. It will calculate on its own the best video experience, and show best results. It can also work as your personal interpreter. However, it will be also important to have a subscription of a certain service for the Hub to access the content.

The device, touted to be child-friendly, offers a special feature 'Talk To Pikachu', which will also render birthday greetings to your child.

Come Monday, and the smart device will be available online on Flipkart, and in offline stores such as Croma, Reliance Digital and TATA Cliq.
