What you need to know

  • The Google Nest Hub has gained a minor yet handy update that improves its home screen.
  • Google’s smart display now shows the current date alongside the time and weather info on the home screen when in standby mode.
  • The latest change is available on the first and second-generation Nest Hubs.

While the Google Nest Hub’s home screen has been a useful hub to keep track of time, weather, and reminders in a single view, it has oddly lacked one key element: the date. Thankfully, a new update to Google’s smart display has arrived to finally fill that void.

The current date now shows up above the clock and weather information in the bottom left-hand corner of the Nest Hub’s home screen. It comes in handy if you want to know what day it is by just glancing at the smart display.
