In this guide we'll show you the real value behind the Google Home.

Read on to find out what are the 3 features you can only do with your Google Home Hub’s screen.
1) Baking with Google Home Hub
Enjoy baking with your Google Home Hub baking assistant! It can look up recipes and substitutions, and answer questions like, “How many tablespoons are in a cup?” One interesting useful function is how Google Hub handles recipes. You can get visual step-by-step instructions on the Google Hub’s screen by simply asking for how to make certain dishes while the Google Home Mini and Google Home only read out the instructions verbally. If needed, you can use your voice to advance further into the recipe or even skip ahead to specific points if you’ve moved on. It will also set countdown timers for you when required, measurement calculations when you need to convert things alongside translations and to do lists. It’s the ultimate kitchen assistant.
2) Music, Movies and Photos
Google Hub will be able to play music, movies and photos using Spotify, Netflix, Youtube and Google Photos directly on its’ screen. As long as you have a Chromecast connected TV, you can also use your Google Hub to play a holiday movie via Netflix on your TV or share your favorite Holiday photos with your friends and family on the big screen. If you want to filter out the genre of videos your kids watch, you can set up filters. For example, you can filter out explicit video and music from search results, or block access to them altogether. You can also block phone calls, answers to questions, Google actions and games. In the Google Home app, go to Settings > Digital wellbeing > Set up to create filters.
3) Turn a Google Home Hub into a digital photo frame
If you have a Google Home Hub with a screen, you can turn the Google Hub into a digital photo frame when it is not in use. You may do so by going to the settings, you choose which selection of photos from your Google account you will like to see. To find this option, open the Google Home app and select your Home Hub device. Tap the gear icon for settings, scroll down to Ambient Mode and choose whatever photo group you like. They should all be grouped by faces, and possibly names if you have previously tagged them in the Google Photo app. Google Assistant then takes photos of the people you choose and set up a slideshow that will cycle through on the Home Hub screen. Furthermore, since the Google Photo app recognizes faces, any new photos you take and upload to Google Photos will appear in this gallery automatically.
Making Life Easier/Better/Simpler
Life is simply easier with you just giving voice commands to Google Home devices instead of doing things manually. It is even better now with the Google Home Hub, enabling you to read up news like a tablet, watch videos, photos, music all in a single device.
The best part? It has been updated to understand Singlish and our local accent. Ask how to get to work and you will get real-time information about the bus, MRT and traffic in Singapore. You can listen to local podcasts, news, radio and even check your Singapore Airlines or SilkAir flight status.
