Job posting points to a future Google Home smart speaker with a screen
According to the job posting, those offered the position will "work on the next generation of Google Hardware to enable the best multi-touch user experience." And the addition of multi-touch to the Google Home certainly would indicate that a display is on the way.
Currently, the Amazon Echo Show (with a 7-inch screen) and the Amazon Echo Spot (with a round 2.5-inch display) are two smart speakers that include a screen. Google has twice disabled the Echo Show's ability to show YouTube videos on the device. Google reportedly told Amazon that it wasn't happy with the latter's refusal to allow its Echo Show users to enable autoplay on YouTube, or sign up to access content providers' channels.
A Google Home smart speaker with a display will no doubt feature YouTube, Google Maps, Chrome and other Google owned apps.
