Today, Nokia’s Beta Labs has released a new app, Nokia Device Hub Beta. According to the entry on their Beta Labs page, Nokia Device Hub Beta is designed to

connect to and access your devices easily. Many wireless headsets, Internet capable Smart TVs, Blu-Ray Players and Computers are supported. Nokia Device Hub recommends Windows Phone applications which work with your devices. Pin a device to the home screen to get easy access to all the apps which work with it.

The Nokia Device Hub Beta solution discovers devices on your local Wifi network using different discovery protocols, and intelligently combines this information to deduce what a device is capable of – while making an emphasis to hide this technologic complexity about different protocols.

Known limitations

This release cannot discover nearby Bluetooth devices, however it shows already paired Bluetooth speakers or headsets. Apple Mac computers and mobile devices are not likely to be discovered by Device Hub either.

The concept of the app is pretty cool. I’m yet to use it as my Lumia is in that awkward charging phase where it won’t turn on yet. 

Let us know of how the app goes for you!
