Engadget Review

The Google Nest Hub Max is a bigger, better Nest Hub meant more shared and communal spaces. The larger screen makes viewing photos and videos a treat, and the sound quality is improved as well. The 6.5-megapixel camera is used not just for video calls, but also Face Match facial recognition, gesture controls, and more. It can even double as a Nest Cam. At a price that’s on par or lower than other similarly-sized smart displays on the market, the Hub Max offers value for the money.
