In the last few years, routers have transformed from computer hardware with antennas to a sleek and compact looking device that are placed throughout your homes. This mesh system has been fixing dead zones by providing a signal in every possible corner of the home. Google has now entered the mesh wifi game with Google Wifi, a multi-point router system. Google Wifi is here to help you extend fast Internet to every corner of your home.
Google Wifi has got a clever yet simple design and cloud-based intelligence to make sure you get wifi signals throughout your homes. Google has designed it in a way so as to easily be set up with the help of a smartphone and managed and controlled remotely. The new wifi on Google Wifi can only be setup and controlled using the new Google Wifi mobile app. Google Wifi is a new type of connected system that replaces your router for seamless coverage throughout your home.
Covering your Entire Home
Traditional Wi-Fi routers come with a limited range. The more the distance between you and the router, the weaker the signal. This results into dead zones and buffering. Using an extender could increase the range, but they can decrease bandwidth and have limited reach as well. Google Wifi replaces your router with “points,” creating a blanket of fast, reliable Wi-Fi that covers your entire home. Google Wifi was designed to handle multiple devices for streaming, downloading, and sharing at the same time, anywhere in the house.
Google Wifi gives you:
- Full coverage throughout your home: Because Wifi points connect easily to each other, you can add as many as you need without affecting your Wi-Fi speed. So Google Wifi provides you with full coverage in all nooks and corners of your home.
- Super fast Wi-Fi in every room: Each Wifi point acts as a router, producing high fidelity signal for optimal device connection in order to give you super fast wifi signal in every room of your house.
- One network for all your devices: It 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, there will be one common network for all your devices.
Network Assist is Google’s intelligence system that manages complex settings and makes sure you have the fastest connection possible. With multiple Google Wifi points, Network Assist invisibly moves your device to the closest point and fastest connection, so you can take your phone from one room to the other without losing signal.
Wi-Fi travels on shared channels, which can get crowded. But Network Assist ensures Wifi points are using the clearest channels to connect to one another, and to your devices. There are two Wi-Fi bands: 2.4GHz which has a slower, but longer range and 5 GHz which has a faster, but shorter range. Network Assist automatically connects your device to the band that will be fastest for you, based on your location.
The Google Wifi App
The Google Wifi app gives you complete control over your network. With the help of the mobile app, you can easily share your Wi-Fi password, see what devices are online, and prioritize them for better performance. You can prioritize between devices for the fastest speeds when you need it the most. Using the mobile app, you can test the speed of your connection at each Wifi point, plus the speed you’re getting from your internet service provider.
Google Wifi’s family controls allow you to pause the signal to your children’s devices, like at the dinner table. The Google Wifi app lets you take control of your kids’ internet usage by pressing pause on their devices and keep dinner time or bed time screen-free.
Google Wifi is easy to setup and use device and costs less than other mesh wifi systems. Google Wifi is probably the best wifi system you can get in the market. If you’re looking for a super-simple way to get Wi-Fi to every corner of your home, Google Wifi is your go-to device.
