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
This is a great WiFi system that this ridiculously easy to set up. It’s fast and has all of the features I need to manage my network. There is just one giant flaw; it needs a native iPad app. So I dinged one star for that. I’ll gladly modify my review if Google ever makes a native iPad app. Other than that, I’m very happy with the system and the app itself.
Using AT&T as out ISP the Google mesh network allows us to take full advantage of the speed we are paying for. We purchased 4 hubs that covers our 4000 sqft home. The app is very easy to use and handles all the heavy lifting. I’d highly recommend the hubs + app if you are looking to get best of your service.
Good hardware. Crap app.
I really don’t understand the negative reviews at all. Great out of the box experience with the three WiFi points for the mesh network, they look clean and modern, and using the app makes the install extremely easy. I have not noticed any slowdown in the network speed. Highly recommended!
I’ve been using the Google WiFi app with my ASUS OnHub since Jan ‘18—first with Spectrum cable and now with my Google Fiber service—and it’s been fast and reliable despite my 25+ devices, simultaneous 4K streaming, and the crowded radio-signal environment of an apartment building. Side note: I’d definitely recommend the ASUS OnHub over the Google WiFi model for its better performance and range. I’ve only had a couple issues with the app. First, theres an issue where devices connected to the Guest WiFi network are shown as having a “wired” Ethernet connection or just inconsistently display whether a device is connected to the Guest network. This doesn’t appear to affect performance or functionality in any perceptible way, but it’s obviously wrong info (e.g. my iPad for guests shows as having a wired connection). My second issue is that the app doesn’t automatically update network information in real-time. I have to either restart the app or navigate to other parts of the app and then come back to get the latest network info.
The app doesn’t properly report wired vs mesh connected additional access points. Seems the access points also don’t seem to properly handle using a wired connection to the main point when available. Very frustrating.
Easy to navigate, easy to use!
Anyone complaining about the app or hardware must be profoundly tech challenged. As an IT professional I have installed dozens of these on the past year. Each system is up and running in no more than 10 minutes, and none of them have gone down, ever. Powerful, solid wifi.
I bought the Devices about a year ago and had a bit of trouble while installing. However, after struggling a few hours I managed to get it to work and has been great from a hardware standpoint. However, the app doesn’t work now (message saying that the version is no longer supported) and I cannot download the upgrade from the AppStore (app no longer available). There is no phone support, it’s terrible.
add full ipad support. kthnx
