Sleep Tracking

The device comes with the Soli radar sensor technology, previously seen in Google Pixel 4 smartphone and Google Nest Smart thermostat. It can sense motion and so makes the basis for the sleep tracking feature of the device. With this technology, the device can track when you are asleep, awake, or absent from your bed without using a camera. The device is also able to monitor your breathing, coughing, or snoring while sleeping.

With the data collected, the device can also provide a personalized sleep schedule and suggestions based on your sleeping habits. It will also provide a daily report on the sleep detail and any interruptions you may have experienced through the night.

Better Audio

The Google Nest Hub 2 is the second generation device of the Google Nest Hub. It brings an upgrade over to its predecessor. While the first generation Google Nest Hub lacked powerful bass, the Google Nest Hub 2 has improved the audio aspect. Goggle claims that the device can produce up to 50% more bass than its predecessor provided by the 1.7-inch full-range speaker driver.

The device is compatible with various audio and video streaming services like Spotify, Youtube, Apple Music, and more.

Quick gestures

The Soli radar is not just helpful for tracking sleep, but it also enables quick gesture features similar to the Google Pixel 4. The quick gesture feature allows you to play and pause videos and music just by moving your hands in the air in front of the screen without actually touching it.

Other Features

Google has included the Thread network in the Google Nest Hub 2, which is a wireless smart home protocol that allows smart home devices from various manufacturers to work together without the need for any third-party services. It also supports Google Assistant with a built-in AI chip that makes the response time even faster.
