MySmartPrice, in collaboration with the gadget tipster Ishaan Agarwal, has revealed that the accessory will be released in the country in a week’s time at a suggested price tag of Rs 8,999. The Google Nest Hub, which is essentially a Google Assistant speaker with a display, was launched in October last year.
