Smart displays are an excellent addition to any home. For instance, your Google Nest Hub lets you control your smart devices hands-free through your voice commands. You don’t have to do anything except say your command or move your fingers on your smart display.
Google Nest Hub smart display automatically sets the screen mode depending on the light it gets from the room. If the room is bright, it will also match the lighting. The automatic mode makes it convenient for you at any time of the day.
But, if you don’t want your screen display settings to match your surroundings and keep it dark or bright at all times, you can also set it manually.
