At the last Made by Google event, the California search giant introduced a range of new products, including a new wifi mesh network: Google Nest wifi.
This is essentially a follow-up of the old Google wifi network, but under the new Google Nest brand that now covers all of the smart home technology with the company’s Google Assistant technology. It has also been redesigned to incorporate softer curves, a simpler aesthetic, and some welcome color options.
What is the launch date of Google Nest wifi?
Nest wifi will launch both in the United States. UU. As in the UK on November 4th, but you can book it on Google.
How much does wifi cost?
You can recover the router for only 149 € / 169 €, a set of two routers and points for 239 € / 269 € and a set of three with a router and two points for 349 €, although the last set is not available the United Kingdom.
The Item will also be sold separately for £ 129 / $ 149, but it will only be online to avoid confusion because, without a router, none of its wifi mesh features will work.
What are the new specifications and features?
The mention of Google Assistant is not a coincidence: the main advantage of Nest wifi is that it works essentially as a set of Nest Mini speakers, including microphones and speakers directly in the hardware.
There is no speaker on the router, the part that connects directly to your phone line, but the second device, the Point, extends not only to extend your wifi coverage but also to expand the Google Assistant throughout the house.
The audio capabilities are the same as in the Nest Mini, also announced today, and it also has a switch for disabling the physical microphone for those cases where you do not want Google to listen.
In terms of technical specifications, the main router has a 4×4 radio for wifi, Bluetooth, and a wired radio to control your smart devices. Each Point has a 2×2 radio, the same Bluetooth and wire capabilities, and a machine learning chip to help activate Google Assistant on the device.
