Product Overview

Google Wifi is a new kind of Wi-Fi solution that can improve your wifi experience by seamlessly connecting with your modem or gateway. And it’s modular - simply add more Google Wifi points to extend coverage.

Why did Google build a Wi-Fi system?

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.

Google Wifi Benefits

Whole-home coverage

Google Wifi points work together as a connected system, so you can add multiple points together to create a strong signal in every corner of your home.

Start with what you need, and add on additional points for more coverage.

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 gives visibility into what devices are connected and offers features like family controls (pause Wi-Fi on kids’ devices), and the ability to prioritise a device.
