Google refreshed the Google Nest Hub for 2021 with Soli radar sensors for sleep tracking. Which is... great, but is that all Google has planned for Soli?

    5:00 and why this is even a surprise? They never cared about people's needs in the first place. They only come up with something that can make them a lot of money and when it's beneficial for the customer it's actually a side effect but it was never Google's intention to make a customer happy IMO. Free data collection baby!

When one was going to sleep it was always almost sure that the other would wake or something else the first couple of hour in there sleep time.

    I'm looking to get one of these for my mom to use instead of a digital frame for photos, then she can change music and ask google stuff as well. I have a couple of questions though, can I connect a speaker directly to it through Bluetooth? Does it lag when used as a photo frame? Does it have a USB port or MicroSD card slot to install extra space for photos? Will Apple Music play through the music functionality? I think I'll just get the first-gen, if anyone has experience and can answer my questions it'd be appreciated

    Said me. I've wanted sleep tracking but I'm not wearing a watch to bed. The one thing I hate is that it shows reminders which stay on screen blocking everything else for several minutes. It's a deal breaker. It replaced my alarm clock and if I can't see what time it is I don't see much point in having the screen.

    It's really great that with all the Google linked appliances in the smart home it makes it even easier to make a virtual you/your partner or kids. Sleep patterns, activities, what you eat, how long and far your commute is, whether you are faithful to your partner or doing/ buying dodgy stuff - all for your convenience...

    I cracked my iPhone 6 screen, somehow I could type on the phone keyboard without touching the display by making a pressing motion over the letter with my finger only 4-5cm over the display. Anyone know what may cause this? The battery of the phone does drain quickly, the battery dies after 40 minutes of watching multiple videos on CNboth @ 360p. If I don’t interact with the display I can get close to an hour and a half at 360p. Phone doesn’t like 1080p videos either, heats up quick. BTW battery dropped from 45% to 10% while typing this.

    I really like my gen 1 Nest Hub, but I won’t be upgrading. I sit mine next to my bed as an alarm clock/photo frame/smart home control/Spotify player. The sleep tracking sounded okay, but I don’t mind wearing my Garmin to bed and it does a lot more. I’d be interested to know if the sleep tracking can identify more than one person in bed. I assume it would track the closer person, but I’d expect it to be less reliable than a device that’s attached to you.
