Are you in the market for a 27″ touch display with Google Assistant built in for your kitchen? If so then GE may just have the product for you, the GE Kitchen Hub which was announced today at CES 2019.
To be clear this isn’t a Google Smart Display it’s a smart display with Google Assistant built-in, clear? Using the Haier U+Smart Life Platform the GE Kitchen Hub includes Video Chat, with multiple cameras so someone can help guide you through cooking that dish, an inbuilt recipe system, calendar integration and live streaming of services like Netflix and Spotify.
The Kitchen Hub runs on top of Android with Google Play built in so you could also install your favourite apps and services and catch up TV apps. It’s unclear what version of Android is underneath, what security patch it’s running or what GE’s / Haier’s commitment to platform updates is, but all of that aside it’s still pretty cool.
Based on it’s suggested US launch price and the typical Australian inflation we’d expect this to launch at $1800 AUD if it ever came to Australia, however, we think that’s a little unlikely.
Would you put a GE Family Hub Range replacement in your kitchen? If so, at what price?
