Two weeks ago, Google offered that from now on users can operate the Nest Hub Max through the assistant’s Quick Phrases, with this, they don’t need to say the “Hey Google” keyword they can direct commands like set alarm, cancel the alarm, and more. Now, from the Preview update for the Nest Hub Max set down the larger smart display’s ability on acts as an extender like Nest Connect.
One of the features of this device is that it’s capable of extending the effective range of certain Nest products like the Nest Detect and Nest x Yale smart lock. These devices connect with Nest Hub Max through an old bridge device with Nest Connect, Nest Guard, or the Nest Hub Max instead of via Wi-Fi.
In this year June, the update said, the Nest Hub max would be set down this extender capability with an upcoming patch that Google dubbed the “Thread-Matter update.” Further said from the update came in late July that the Matter update would be tagged F7, and the current stable update is “F6.” As you might expect, the “F” in “F7” is for Fuchsia.
The company presents a support page that details the current stable and Preview Program firmware for Nest and Google Home devices. The new listings show that Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max devices in the Preview Program will soon be gaining the F7 update, 7.20220419.2.166 for the smaller hub and 7.20220419.2.164 for the larger. There some noticeable thing is the availability of Matter/Thread devices for your Google Home network. They are preparing many ways for their devices and apps to give Home a smart look. This launch will be released later this year.
With this removal of Nest bridge/extender features, we’re not currently expecting much to change with the F7 update for Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max. Those users who were affected by this, they advised, to reposition their devices and stay connected for convenience. Google will offer some customers a free Nest connects service when the old extending feature not working.
