When Google formally unveiled the Pixel Tablet during its October hardware event in 2022, it showed the tablet connected to a speaker dock. Even before Google could explain what was happening, we all saw it: when docked, it looked just like a Nest Hub smart display. This naturally got me, and a lot of other folks here at Android Authority, thinking that the Pixel Tablet could replace my Nest Hub by doing everything the smart display can while also acting as a full-fledged Android tablet.
I tried to use the Google Pixel Tablet to replace my Nest Hub. As it turns out, these are very different products despite a similar look.
In the end, there are so many things a Nest Hub can do that the Pixel Tablet can't, and the Nest Hub Max dunks it even further.
My verdict based on article: No.
