Christmas just got more magical with Google Nest Hub Max
Keen to bring more festive cheer to your Christmas preparations? Like the idea of magically turning on the fairy lights with just your voice? Us too. If you’re new to home assistants in general, allow us to introduce Google Nest Hub Max. With the latest in smart home tech and a host of helpful features to try, it’ll make your Christmas a little easier this year – and maybe even fool the kids that there is a magical elf or two on the loose in your home.
From help in the kitchen to connecting with loved ones, here are five of our favourite ways to make this festive season a little more magical with Google Nest Hub Max.
1. Get step-by-step instructions for the perfect pav
Nest Hub Max gives you hands-free help in the kitchen. You can search for thousands of recipes and then hear step-by-step instructions as you cook. We know – game changing. Just say, “Hey Google, show me pavlova recipes” and Nest Hub Max will guide you every step of the way to a perfectly springy meringue. And for an extra magical pavlova experience with the kids, say “Hey Google, talk to The Wiggles Kitchen”, to sing along with the Wiggles and create your dream Pavlova (available from 3rd Dec).
2. Stream your favourite Christmas movies from Netflix
Everything looks and sounds great on the Nest Hub Max 10-inch HD screen and stereo speakers. Got a go-to Christmas movie tradition? Now you can have your favourite characters on screen in seconds just say, “Hey Google, play The Christmas Chronicles 2 on Netflix” to start watching.
3. Turn on your Christmas tree lights
Nest Hub Max works with hundreds of smart home devices, like fairy lights, TVs and smart plugs. You can be on your way to a futuristic smart home sooner than you think. Add a string of twinkly lights to your smart plug and say “Hey Google, turn on the Christmas tree” to really wow the kids.
4. Video call the whole family
Whether you’re down the road or across the country, Nest Hub Max helps everyone stay in touch, thanks to its exceptional video calling capability. You can make video calls or leave video messages with Duo. You guessed it – it’s hands-free. “Hey Google, call Grandma” is about to become a popular phrase at your place this season. You can make group calls of up to 100 people so great for the big family catch ups too!
5. Display your favourite Christmas memories
Nest Hub Max is the ultimate digital picture frame. It automatically shows off your latest and greatest shots from Google Photos so family is never too far away. Plus you can ask “Hey Google, show me my photos of Christmas 2018” to relive your favourite Christmas memories.
