    • I love my Google Home Hub but I'm also in the GH Ecosystem, so it's an easy choice for me. I suggest if you already have Ring products, stick with Amazon and go for the Echo Show 8.

    • I have both, the Echo Show 8 being one of my newer purchases.
      Both have its pros and cons, and I actually think that the best solution is to have both in the household, dependent on the other devices you have. Compared to the Echo Show 8, the Nest Hub looks so tiny, I ended up moving it to my bedroom instead while the Echo Show 8 took the kitchen. The Echo Show 8 is also more vibrant and offers more appealing screensavers versus the Google home hub that just shows pictures. The Echo Show 8 will give different tips of things to try with Alexa that serve as fun distractions while cooking.

      The sound quality is also much better on the Show 8, with a much deeper sound. However, I've noticed that sometimes the bass is a little too heavy, but that's neither here nor there.

      The Echo show 8 also has the camera which gives access to video calling and access to the Ring doorbell, neither of which I've actually tried yet.

      One pro that the Google home hub will have though is the ability to cast Netflix and Youtube, but the screen is so small that I haven't or won't choose to do so.

      Overall, if I were to pick one, the winner of my kitchen will be the Echo Show 8. Note that I also have the Google Home hub in the kitchen as well as a substitute.

      I was also able to get the Show 8 for like $65, so that helped.

      I'm so torn which home products to go with, because we have ring doorbell and alarm, but nest thermostat and smoke detectors..

      We're both google phones, watches, music, etc., though.

    • I went through this comparison and chose the Google Hub because of the following:

      1) Fantastic integration with Google Photos, Live Albums etc - if photo frame is one of your primary use cases and you use Google Photos this should be a major consideration.
      2) Ability to cast - I keep mine in the kitchen, so now whenever I'm about to go make a smoothie or cook dinner I'll cast something to the kitchen before heading over.

      How did you pay $59.99 for echo show?

    • For those who uses Google Photos for backup, I can't recommend the Nest Hub enough. My wife usually scoffs at anything techy (in her words, it complicates her life lol), but she loves how it pulls photos we would have never otherwise looked at again

      Actually $65.00, I'll update. It was $89.99 at Staples last year, plus a $25 coupon

      Yeah that's tough! I don't believe you can get the Ring Screen on a Google Home Hub if that's what you'd want to do. I believe Google Home's can work with the Ring for everything else, but I'm not 100% sure. But if you ever decide to get a screen device, Echo Show might be better suited for your needs just so you can have the doorbell camera on your display. That said, since you have over 80% of Google devices, could be a better to switch to the Google Nest Doorbell. Also just because it's annoying to switch between "Hey Google" and "Alexa" and change your phrasing of demands so the respective device understands you.

      Also, I really love grouping all my GH devices and having the same music playing in all the rooms.

      Yeah no ring display on the HUB. There is a super buggy and realistically non functional support for Wyze cam display.

      I won't do that, though. I pay a subscription for Ring and it includes all my devices (since I have the alarm), so I'd need to then pay my alarm monitor PLUS nest video subscription fees.

      I've read some workarounds in having an amazon echo mini near (one of) your google homes, and making a keyphrase which the Google Home repeats and triggers the Alexa device.. may have to give that a shot. I don't think I'm fussed about not seeing my cameras on a home device.. so maybe I'll go with google.

    • I also use the Lenovo Smart Display 8" instead of the Echo. Its nice to have the larger display and speaker but the Hub is my goto. I don't cast to it nor use it for YouTube or Netflix. The 43" 4K UHD set is for that. But its nice to be able to ask things or make a phone call with the Hub. I don't have security devices, so they are moot for that. But my home lighting goes through both. Unfortunately, the Smsrt Displays don't seem to be updated by Lenovo, so I can't do a phone call with it, though it can do Skype, which I have not tried as I know of no one who could do likewise. But the Lenovo was cheap when Walmart dumped them earlier in the year and the Hub I got for under $70 when Lowe's went under locally last year. All in all, I'm happy with my purchases...

      We also had a mix of products but decided to eventually stick to the Google ecosystem. We recently swapped out our Ring Pro for Google Hello. Will be switching out the Ecobee for the Nest thermostat eventually.

    • I love the google ecosystem, but the lack of camera for video calls sent us to the Echo Show. Using Prime photos means we still get our photos on rotation.

      Going much more expensive just to get that camera for the google just didn't seem worth it.

    • I already have this in my kitchen. I need the Hub Max to go on sale.

      You should have grabbed the Lenovo Smart display for video calls. I think they are also on sale at Best Buy. I got mine for $50 each with the intent to give them to relatives for video calls or Skype. But not many stores have them anymore. The camera also has a shutter for privacy.

    • These are cheap and always on sale but once you get one of these you'll just want the Nest Hub Max.
      My advice, skip and go directly to the Max.

      The only exception is that these mini ones make the best bedside alarm clocks ever IMO.
