There was an error with some users’ Google Nest Hub. Their smart display shows a pink tint on the screen as a result of the Fuchsia update. Google is aware of the bug and is working on it, but we’ll explain how to fix it now.
Google Nest Hub error
You can’t think of it that crazy. Your smart display will finally receive its update to the Fuchsia operating system, and precisely then you will have to deal with an error that colors your screen pink… Fuchsia pink, so to speak. It’s exactly what happened to a small group of Nest Hub owners, and the issue has already been raised on Reddit.
It seems kind of funny if you just got the update to Google’s mysterious operating system, but it is indeed an error. The intention is that you will not notice any visible changes after your smart display has been given a new operating system.

That’s how you solve it
Google is already aware of the bug and is working on a fix, but you don’t have to wait for that. There are two ways to get rid of the pink screen. For the first method, follow the steps below:
- Open the Google Home app and tap the Nest Hub there
- Tap the Tik at the top Settings icon
- Choose Accessibility
- Use the switch next to Color inversion
If you can’t get rid of the pink screen with the Color Inversion feature, you can do two things: wait for the fix that Google is working on or just reset your Nest Hub to factory settings. Such a hard reset is much less invasive with a smart display than when you do the same with a smartphone. You can reset the Nest Hub by pressing the top and bottom volume buttons simultaneously until the device reboots. An explanation of the steps can be found in this article. Then you need to set it up again from the Google Home app.
