UPDATE: Google accidentally revealed the release date of Google Nest Hub Max in the Google Store, but has since deleted that information. Find out when you can wait next.
If the Google Nest Hub (formerly called Google Home Hub) was a bit too small for your liking, Google has something new that will be up to it: it's the new Nest Hub Max with a 10-inch HD screen and the Assistant of Google.
Not only does it have a larger and higher resolution screen, but it also comes with a built-in Nest Cam that can be verified when you're away from home. When using Face Match, Nest Hub Max can notify you when it sees someone who is not in your family and can provide personal calendars and playlists.
A quick gesture feature that allows you to control playback in the speaker by hand gestures is also new in this Hub. According to Google, you can pause the music by raising your hand (if, for example, in your home there is too much noise for the Google Assistant to listen to you) and then resume with the same gesture when you're ready.
Like the original Home Hub we reviewed last year, the new Nest Hub Max will have access to Google Photos and will include Chromecast Built-in, two features that set it apart from Amazon's Amazon Echo Show with similar specifications.
Google introduced the Hub Max in the 2019 edition of the Google IO conference outside its headquarters in Mountain View, California, along with the new Pixel 3a.
Nest Hub Max release date and price
For the first time, Google Nest Hub and the new Nest Hub Max will be available in the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom at the same time. Although Google has not officially confirmed anything, eagle-eyed people in Droid Life discovered an accidental revelation of the September 9 release date. It seems that it was mistakenly published a little too soon in the Google Store, but has since retired.
So, how much will it cost you? The Nest Hub Max will be available for $ 229 / £ 219 / AU $ 349, while the original Google Home Hub (now called Nest Hub) will drop to $ 129 / £ 119 / AU $ 199.

News from Nest Hub Max
The first time we heard about the Nest Hub Max was when it accidentally leaked into the Google Store in March. That was when we learned that it would have a 10-inch HD screen and the integration of the Nest Cam. Now, in Google IO 2019, Google has confirmed that the device exists and has given us details about the device.
