Google's Nest Hub Max to launch on September 9

Google seems to have quietly revealed the Nest Hub Max will launch on 9 September in the US, UK, and Australia. The chime has a different tone to confirm turning a device on rather than turning it off, and the overall volume of the chime is based on the master volume of the Google Home or Nest Hub. Droid Life discovered what appears to be a release date for the unreleased Nest Hub Max smart display on a somewhat discreet support page that lists availability of new and upcoming devices.

Google introduced the Nest Hub Max rather shortly at its annual developer convention, exclusively saying that it might arrive "later this Summer".

It's an attractive look, but the Hub Max's increased size means it loses the cutesy appeal of the smaller screen version, and will be a more dominant presence in your home.

Google says the Nest Hub Max will also be available in the United Kingdom from John Lewis, Argos and Currys PC World.

Going forward, if the Google Home product you are talking to is in the same room as the lights you'd like to turn off, you will no longer here the full "OK, turning off 2 lights" response. Google announced the Max model in May, but we haven't received a firm release date after the company skipped the original July 15 launch window. In the meantime, if you're interested, you can sign up in the "Join Waitlist" section and you'll be informed through your Google account when it's available.

That makes it the same price as Amazon's Echo Show, which also boasts a camera and the same display display. It also acts as a Google Home speaker and has an in-built Google Assistant that can converse with users. Further, there are multiple controls to disable camera and microphones, including a hardware switch.

According to TechRadar, Google says that the Hub will recognise a user through face recognition - Face Match - and use it to offer a personalised experience.

Looking to pick up the Google Nest Hub Max that was shown off back in the beginning of May at Google I/O this year? That being said if you're not keen on waiting until September 9 to get a smart display in the home, the regular Nest Hub should suffice.
