Nest Hub

The Google Nest Hub is powered by Google Assistant, and while its main purpose is, well, assisting you, there’s a lot of fun stuff it can do, too. We’ll show you how to put your display to good use with games.

Every device that includes Google Assistant has access to a bunch of jokes, Easter eggs, and games. A smart display such as the Nest Hub is great because you can see the games on the screen and use more than just voice—although you don’t have to.
