The Nest Hub Max allows video calling via Google Duo, which will be handy when you’re in the kitchen cooking and want to have a chat with friends or family.

There is also a video messaging option so if they don't pick up you can leave your friends a quick video message, similar to what you can already do with Duo on Android and iOS.
This is a first for Google’s own Smart displays, the previous Nest Hub lacked a Camera entirely.

The Smart displays launched by Lenovo, were the only products that allowed Video calling with Duo until now.

You can also use the camera for home monitoring (indoor Nest Cam) which you will have complete control of and can view remotely as if it were any other Nest Cam, the Face Match will be optional upon setup this will ask you to scan your face it will allow 6 people at present to be setup.

The camera can also be switched off by swiping up on the Nest Hub Max however there will be an indicator to show you this is switched off this will still allow the Google Assistant to work (as long as you have the microphone switched on).

The microphone, audio and camera can be switched off whenever you feel necessary.
The microphone and camera kill switch is located on the back of the Nest Hub Max, you can have this switched off permanently, however, I would prefer to keep this on when using this in the kitchen, if my hands have food all over them, the built-in camera will allow me to pause and play music/videos with hand-gestures.
This is additional to voice and touch control from the previous Nest Hub.

The Speaker is louder and pumps out more bass than the current google hub and google home’s, however, they still do not beat the Google Home Max.

Google says that the Nest Hub Max will have a 3-inch Subwoofer, which should provide a much richer sound experience. The first Nest Hub has a less than impressive sound output but still does the job. The Nest Hub max is aiming to be a combination of the Google Home Max and Nest Hub.
