Since the first Nest Hub debuted back in 2018, there haven’t been many changes to the Google smart display. Even though Google gave us a new version last year, the changes were primarily internal. So, unless you really know what you’re looking for, if you put the two smart displays side by side — it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between them. With that said, here are three things we’d like to see in a Nest Hub 3. 

Nest Hub 3: Time to expand

As one of the best smart displays out there, the second generation Nest Hub has a lot to offer, and there really isn’t much that needs improving. However, its stale appearance could use a refresh. One of the reasons this is such a great smart display is its small footprint. The narrow fabric-wrapped base that houses the speaker provides good sound while not taking up too much of the tabletop. But it’s time for some expansion. 

The large bezels on the Nest Hub look like they belong back in 2018 when the design was introduced.
