Google again launches with less as we hope for more
Google's new Home Hub doesn't do a whole lot right now, but that may be the point. It feels like it has the absolute minimum feature set to launch with, which is the same approach the company took with Google Home. When that launched, it was a Google voice command product that didn't support many of the established Google voice commands, like creating reminders or calendar events. Then over the course of about two years, Google Home received continual updates that made it better and better. So if you buy a Home Hub now, you're doing it hoping for the same thing.
