After being unveiled in October, today marks the official launch of Google Wifi. Google Wifi is Google’s second attempt at a Wi-Fi router, after the Google OnHub released last year.
Most of us have Wi-Fi at home, but don’t think much about how it gets from the service provider to our devices. Learn how it works—and how Google Wifi can take your devices further.
Full coverage throughout your home.
Because Wifi points connect seamlessly to each other, you can add as many as you need without affecting your Wi-Fi speed.
Super fast Wi-Fi in every room.
Each Wifi point acts as a router, producing high fidelity signal for optimal device connection.
One network for all your devices.
Google Wifi uses “mesh” technology to create a single Wi-Fi network, so there’s no need to manually switch between points as you move from room to room. Learn more about mesh.
Network Assist is Google intelligence that manages complex settings behind the scenes and makes sure you have the fastest connection possible.
Places you on the least congested channel.
Wi-Fi travels on shared channels, which can get crowded. Network Assist ensures Wifi points are using the clearest channels to connect to one another, and to your devices.
Uses the fastest band for your devices.
There are two Wi-Fi bands: 2.4GHz (slower, but longer range) and 5 GHz (faster, but shorter range). We automatically connect your device to the band that will be fastest based on your location.
Always connects you to the fastest Wifi point.
With multiple Google Wifi points, Network Assist invisibly transitions your device to the closest point and fastest connection, so you can take your video calls from the living room to the kitchen without losing signal.
