Google claimed Nest Secure's hub supports Google Assistant
In its announcement, Google claimed Nest Secure's central 'hub' component, the Nest Guard, will support Assistant, allowing users to ask questions like "Hey Google, do I need an umbrella today?". However, the specifications page of the product had no mention of an integrated microphone.
Either way, this is a critical blunder from Google
Though Google has accepted the error, it is extremely uncommon to see one of the largest technology companies in the world make such a rookie mistake, especially in the case of a home security product.
The company defended its move by saying it kept a microphone to introduce more capabilities into the product such as the ability to detect the sound of shattering glass.
