Google took its sweet time launching a smart display, but it finally unveiled the Home Hub at the recent October event. Luckily, the user with the Home Hub will get to see the other caller. It'll run you $149, which is a bit cheaper than most smart displays. But without the camera, the Home Hub obviously doesn't allow users to conduct two-way video chats using Google's own Duo app.

Some additional context from MacRumors about the HomePod's placement on that list: "While the HomePod may have only a single-digit share of the overall market, Strategy Analytics shared data last month indicating that Apple accounts for 70 percent of the small but growing $200-plus smart speaker market, topping competing products such as the Google Home Max and a variety of Sonos speakers". You can view this page by clicking on the sourcelink below. Hanging up afterward is as easy as saying "End the call" or "Hang up".

If you're like me, your vision of the future of smart homes includes a central device that controls everything in the home: a super-smart remote that lets you control lights, locks, music, and more in every corner of the house from the comfort of your bed (or somewhere else in your home).

While Google says that the lack of a front-facing camera on the Home Hub was a design choice made to protect a user's privacy, it also might have been a choice made by Google to keep the price of its smart display down for competitive reasons.
