Google released the Nest (originally called Google Home) to compete against Amazon’s Echo in 2017. It has similar features to the Amazon Echo. Since launching, Google now offers 4 different speakers. The Google Nest Mini and the Nest Audio are more traditional smart speakers, with the latter offering superior sound quality.
The Nest Hub and Next Hub Max include screens, and are Google’s rival to the Amazon Echo Show. Users can use these devices to make video calls, download apps and stream content via Netflix and other platforms.
This speaker offers the option to use different voices. The AI assistant’s name on the Google nest is simply; ‘Google Assistant’. You can initiate an interaction with this speaker by simply saying “Hey Google”.
