The Google Wifi app lets you set up and control your Google Wifi points or OnHub right from your mobile device. It puts you in control of your network -- easily share your Wi-Fi password, see what devices are online, prioritize them for better performance, or pause the Wi-Fi on kids’ devices. The app also provides insights to help you get the most out of your Wi-Fi. Here’s what you can do with the Google Wifi app: • Set up your Google Wifi system or OnHub in just a few minutes • Prioritize a device for faster speeds when it matters most • Pause the Wi-Fi on kids’ devices • See what’s connected to your network and how much bandwidth you’re using • Create a separate network for your guests • Run a network check to test your connection speed • Make changes to your settings, such as your Wi-Fi network name and password • Add a network manager who can help you monitor your Wi-Fi
I’ll give a higher rating after I’m able to assign devices to profiles. What’s the point of having parental controls (Family WiFi) to manage my kids activity if doesn’t work.
Read reviews on sites. Consider other platforms. I have a fairly basic setup and Google WiFi is having a hard time keeping up connection speeds on my network. Quite disappointing given Google is behind this. WiFi support is also pretty bad so don’t expect much help there. The first level folks are nice and friendly but as soon as they can’t solve an issue and it’s escalated the second level support is dismissive and not helpful.
Love the app. The features are great and easy to understand setup. Love that you can block people but there is no way of removing them from accessing the WiFi ever. Would be a cool feature to have. Other than that it works great and better than most routers.
The Wifi Hardware is on part and future proof I presume, but the OS is not control well with more disconnection compare to my Apple Airport Express, can help to resolve this stability? Also if possible do not need double NAT The Apps is totally on low with only iPhone ver when using in my iPad home terminal i need to turn my head around to view and tweak. Room to growth.
It just says looking for device. It never connects in setup. I have uninstalled the app, unplugged the google net etc. same issue every time.
Not worth the bother. Nothing I’ve seen on the Web fixes it.
We have 7 schedules with 20+ devices setup in the app. They all seem to be working and pausing the internet at the appropriate times (good) but the app always now says they are not paused (bad). It's very hard to know if the schedules are actually working without checking all the devices which is impractical. Also it would be great if I could temporarily enable the internet for a device that would stay in effect until the next schedule change. Currently I have to disable the schedule or remove the label from the schedule to create an exception and unfortunately these changes are permanent and I have to remember to restore them later. Temporary exceptions for a specific device would solve most of these issues.
It would be great if you can make this app available in the no- USA store!!
It increase our internet speed 5 times faster compared to our previous wifi router. Software is easy to use and give you flexibity to control several things. Totally recommend it!
It’s been months of trying to get my IOS devices to connect to google WiFi without any prevail. Some Mac devices work, but others have so many connectivity problems, I’d even recommend Comcast. I love Google but this Google WiFi should not be sold as is. The Google help forums are locked so IOS users can’t up-vote common problems. Seems like Google is trying to hide common issues instead of fixing them.
