Google Wifi now supports speed tests for individual devices

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Google's mesh router launched with built-in speed testing capabilities, but a new update expands that functionality. With the aim of improving network troubleshooting, you can now test individual devices. This feature is live in the latest Google Wifi app, and you can download it right now.

To test a specific device with the Google Wifi app, just tap on it in your connection list to open the details page. Then, open the overflow menu and tap on "Test device speed." The UI is not the same as the existing speed test—it's a popup on the same info screen.  Once the test is done, the popup lists the connection speed of your chosen device to the currently connected AP.

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Buying Google's gadgets can be very difficult if you live in a country where they're not officially available. Overpriced black markets, questionable imports, and difficulty of finding support are some of the issues you face. But after today, that won't be the case for Android and Google fans in Singapore as the official Store is now launched in their country.

The Google Store in Singapore carries 6 products so far, but they're arguably the most interesting.

Google Wifi is now available to buy from the Google Store in Ireland

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

Google Wifi impressed when it first came out right at the end of 2016. And it's still an excellent option today, especially if you want a reliable connection throughout your home which you struggle to achieve with a single-router setup. Unfortunately, Google Wifi is only available in a handful of countries, but Ireland has just been added to the list.

In October last year, Google started selling its router system in several Nordic countries and The Netherlands, following on from its launch in France and Germany earlier in the year.

Google Wifi app updated with advanced LAN settings including router IP, subnet, and more

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

The Google Wifi app started life as "Google On" for OnHub, and it's always been one of the nicer Android router clients. However, it was missing some advanced settings from non-Google routers. Today, the Wifi app is gaining some new features, including some of those advanced settings.

Here's the changelog (for vBV10127_RC0011) direct from Google.

  • Family Wi-Fi: Delay a schedule for 30 minutes, even after it starts.
  • Advanced settings: Customize LAN settings including router IP, subnet, and DHCP address pool.

New Google Wifi update adds support for parental controls and more [APK Download]

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

The internet can be a dangerous place, especially for kids. Many routers these days have some sort of parental control settings to help block access to nefarious or unsavory websites. Google's Wifi system is joining the party with the latest update. There's more stuff to be had here, but site blocking is certainly the highlight.

As usual, here's the changelog:

  • Site blocking: Restrict devices or groups of devices from accessing adult websites
  • Network optimization for time-sensitive data streams: Real-time traffic, such as voice calls and video calls, will perform better
  • IPv6: Support for custom DNS
  • General stability and performance improvements

Network optimization is another good feature to see, and it's one I use often in my home.
