A:AnswerMoatly the soli radar sleep sensor, re-tuned bass for better sound, 3 mics instead of 2, and on board command processing instead of querying the server as much, and internal hub-like network enhancement to allow communication with lights etc if your wifi went out. Sounds like Amazon's sidewalk but google calls it something else. Unclear if processor is new. Beveled edge is cosmetically different. Screen res is the same as gen 1.
A:AnswerI forgot to mention in my previous answer that, no, you don't need any additional equipment. Everything is streamed over the Internet, and played on the built-in speaker. You do have the option of subscribing to TunedIn's premium service, which will have fewer ads and more contents.
Before buying this device, try out TunedIn on your phone, tablet or computer. You can either go to TunedIn's website, or download their app. What you hear is exactly what you'd hear on this device.
A:AnswerNo. Nest Hub (2nd gen) doesn't have a camera. But, it has a Soli sensor for Motion Sense. Motion Sense uses low-energy radar to detect movement like breathing and gestures even without a camera.
