Amazon's Echo Show proved voice assistants could be more useful with a screen. The Google Home Hub concurs. Powered by Assistant, this smallish countertop appliance has a 7-inch display with a speaker as its base. It performs the usual tasks, like setting timers and answering general questions, can stream media from YouTube, Spotify, and Pandora, amongst others, and is a perfect digital frame for Google Photos. It also gives you an overview of any compatible smart devices you have in your home. Perhaps most impressive? It lacks a camera, so there's no worry of it spying on you, and a Mute button in the back completely shuts off the mics, further ensuring your privacy.
