The router is what gives us Wi-Fi in our homes, but today’s routers weren’t necessarily built to keep up with the new ways we use Wi-Fi. We don’t just have a single computer browsing the web anymore. We’re using more devices in our homes, moving throughout the house while we use them, and using them for high bandwidth activities like streaming and video chatting. The result is that we are often frustrated with Wi-Fi problems like dead zones, buffering, or having to unplug-and-replug the router to keep things working.
Introducing Google Wifi. Google Wifi is a new type of connected system that replaces your router for seamless coverage throughout your home. With Google Wifi, you can do everything you love online, anywhere in your house. The system was designed to handle multiple devices streaming, downloading, and sharing at the same time.
Say goodbye to dead zones and spotty connections. Google Wifi points work together as a connected system, spreading a fast signal to every corner of your home. With more and more devices on home Wi-Fi, good connection is critical to keep everything from laptops to smart light bulbs working smoothly.
It keeps itself fast with Network Assist
Advanced Network Assist technology works in the background to always keep your network fast. For example, by always placing you on the clearest channel to help avoid buffering.
The app provides a simple way to control what matters
An easy to use app makes set-up simple, and gives visibility into what devices are connected and offers features like family controls (pause Wi-Fi on kids’ devices), and the ability to prioritize a device.
An expandable system
A single Google Wifi point covers homes up to 1,500 square feet, while a three-pack can cover up to 4,500 square feet. Start with what you need, and add on additional points for more coverage.
