Engadget Review

With the new Nest Hub, Google managed to improve the smart display’s audio system, add a machine-learning chip for faster Assistant responses and build in a radar motion detector for gesture controls, all for $50 less than the original. All those upgrades already make this a better connected screen, but it also offers motion-based sleep tracking. If you find that feature creepy or unhelpful, thankfully it’s optional and not enabled by default.
