GOOGLE NEST HUB MAX
The upgraded version of the Nest Hub smart display features a 10-inch display rather than the original 7-inch, and it comes with an ambient light sensor that adjusts the brightness depending on the time of day. It also doubles as a digital photo frame when not in use, so you can set a slideshow of recent snaps to brighten the room. Another change over the original is louder, better audio performance. This means it’s more suited to larger homes as well as making your music sound better. $229.
