Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) Smart Display in India

To recall, Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) smart display was introduced to the world in 2022. However, it has arrived in India only now with some missing features. In terms of missing features, the Sleep Sensing feature and gesture controls are not available in the Indian version of Nest Hub (2nd Gen). Google has confirmed this at the launch event.

The reason is that the Soli radar technology is not enabled in India. This is a key component for the sleep tracking and gesture features. Still, the Indian Nest Hub (2nd Gen) still offers a wealth of exciting possibilities. Its sleek design, powerful audio, and convenient multi-room control make it a compelling choice for anyone looking to upgrade their smart home experience.

  • Nest Hub (2nd Gen) Minus Sleep & Gesture Control

Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) has finally arrived, but with a tweak to its feature set. During the launch event, Google has explained why the Sleep Sensing feature and gesture controls are not working in the Nest Hub (2nd Gen) smart display in India.

But this technology is not approved for use in India yet. Soli radar technology enables the device to detect gestures and movements. Without Soli technology, the Indian version of Nest Hub (2nd Gen) does not have these features. Henceforth, the buyers in India will also have to compromise on the gesture control feature as well.
