Google's wireless router is one of Google's lesser-known products. It's also been a while since Google released the first version of the Google WiFi router. And so it's getting ready to launch the next-generation Google WiFi with some major changes, possibly starting on October 15, along with the new Pixel phones moving from Google Home branding to Nest. Google's next-gen wireless router will appear to be called Nest WiFi.
According to 9to5Google, the next-gen router will have some major changes in its operation. Google will offer the "main router" along with a few smaller beacons that work with the main router, similar to Amazon's Eero Mesh home routers. These new smaller beacons integrate support from Google Assistant. In addition to the usual wizard features, the Nest WiFi beacons include some WiFi-specific features, such as: For example, the ability to stop the Internet in certain rooms or for certain devices with your voice. However, the main part of the router on the new Nest Wi-Fi system will not provide wizard support.
With Nest Wi-Fi, Google also introduces an updated design that makes routers fit into your home much better than before Google plans to offer three different colors so you can choose the one that best suits your room mood.
If you already have the existing Google WiFi system, you may be able to use products from the new Nest WiFi to pair with your existing routers, which sounds like a really good deal.
