Ever since Google acquired Nest back in 2014, both companies have sort of continued to run as separate entities, with each company putting out their own set of products. However, it seems that could change because in a leak on its own website, Google might have accidentally revealed an upcoming product called the Nest Hub Max.
Based on the name, the Nest Hub Max sounds like it is related to the Google Home Hub, which coincidentally enough was also leaked by Google themselves ahead of its official announcement. According to Google’s website, they have described the Nest Hub Max as being a smart display that comes with a Nest Cam integrated into the speakers.
This means that in addition to being able to make video calls using the device, it can double up as a security camera of sorts where Google states that it will be able to detect motion and sound and alert the user to them. The website listing for the upcoming product also states that the smart display will come with a 10-inch HD screen and a set of stereo speakers, but other than that, not much is known about the device.
There is no mention of how much it could cost or when it might be released, but as its name implies, it sounds like the merging of the Nest Cam, the Google Home Hub, and the Google Home Max, which could be interesting and potentially expensive, but we’ll have to wait and find out.
