Google has confirmed the inclusion of video calling support on Zoom for your device Nest Hub Max, initially limited to the territories of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia. Although the smart display is not officially available in Italy (in the US it is sold for $ 229), the news is interesting as it testifies to the opening of the Mountain View group towards the implementation of third-party solutions within its products.
Zoom video calls on Nest Hub Max
Zoom thus joins Meet and Duo, platforms managed directly by bigG, allowing you to take part in business meetings and meetings between family members relying solely on the small screen of the smart home. The Nest Hub model also sold in our country (read the review) does not offer support for the functionality as it does not have the necessary video camera.
The user can ask the artificial intelligence of theGoogle Assistant to start a video call or join a scheduled one in the calendar with a simple voice command, without even touching the display.
Zoom is among the realities that have benefited most from the situation that has arisen at a global level in this 2020, with the imposition of measures for distancing and the obligation to rely on online tools for communication. The news of the arrival of the vaccines for COVID-19 as a result, it immediately curbed the company's run on the stock market.
