Product Overview

Google Wifi is a Wi-Fi system that works with your modem and Internet provider to bring you reliable Wi-Fi coverage in your home. Get a consistent signal on your devices. Streaming a movie or joining an important video call? Google Wifi lets you prioritise that device for strong performance when it matters most .

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

Within our mesh network, each Google Wifi point creates a high-powered connection, and they work together to determine the best path between points for your data. The result is Wi-Fi coverage through your house, not just right next to the router. You can even roam about the house while on a video call or streaming a movie.

It keeps itself fast with Network Assist

Google’s Network Assist software does the hard work for you, reducing slowdowns so you and your family can keep doing the things you love without missing a beat.

The app provides a simple way to control what matters

From the start, the app helps get you online with simple step-by-step instructions. Once you’re online, the app allows you to do things like easily find and share your password, see what devices are connected, pause Wi-Fi on your kids' devices and even prioritise a device for fast speeds when it matters most.

An expandable system

Google Wifi points work together as a connected and scalable system. Add additional points to increase and extend coverage, bringing Wi-Fi to those hard to reach areas in your home.*

*Home materials and layout can affect how Wi-Fi signal travels. Homes with thicker walls or long, narrow layouts may need extra Wifi points for full coverage.
