Google Nest Hub Max: Changes to Zoom and Meet conferencing functionality

Google is making a significant shift away from smart devices by discontinuing support for Zoom and Google Meet meetings on its Nest Hub Max. According to reports from 9to5Google, some users have received notifications informing them that they will no longer be able to join meetings on the device starting from September 28. This news comes after Zoom’s announcement in July that support for Nest Hub Max would end on September 30, indicating Google’s intention to remove these services by October.

Google clarified that support for joining meetings via meeting codes and links in Google Meet is being discontinued. However, the ability to make one-on-one and group video calls to friends, family, and businesses using Google Meet remains unchanged.

The Google Nest Hub Max received positive reviews when it was launched in 2019, with an 86 rating for its impressive display and sound quality. Initially, it only offered support for Google Duo, but the demand for video calling during the pandemic led to the addition of Zoom and Google Meet. Now, these programs are being phased out. Furthermore, Google ceased all support for games and third-party voice apps in June, and the Nest Cam has yet to transition to the Google Home app.

Nest Hub Max owners have expressed their dissatisfaction with these changes, with some questioning the device’s future and others considering seeking refunds, as the video calling feature was a significant factor in their purchase decision.
