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



  • Scrolling is broken

    By Jason Barile
    This has been broken for over a year. When you have more than a screenful of devices in a family WiFi list, you cannot scroll to the bottom, even if you’re trying to edit and remove one from the list. Come on Google, you’re better than this. Give it to an intern to fix maybe?
  • Love it took me 20 minutes to install

    By Austin TEJAS
    This is by far the best router I have ever gotten. And the app worked perfect. I did a lot of research and could not be happier going with the google Wifi.
  • Love the simplicity but.....

    By Rizz1117
    Can we get the option to choose channel or at least choose a channel range. please and thank you. There are other things like not switching to the closest node and speeds are ridiculously different in rooms outside of where my main node is. I know there would be a drop but I’m talking about hundreds of mgps 20 ft away in a room where that node is wired to the main node. But I mainly need the option to pick channels Sincerely, A Frustrated Man
  • Love it

    I hade google WiFi for over 2 years the app works great on iOS and android both platforms are user friendly. I know you can’t block websites that well but google safety search works great for what I needed it for. Google safety search blocks all of the bad websites out there. Googles download speeds are blazing fast as so as the upload speed. The app is really easy to use you can also remotely control your homes wifi when your away
  • What a piece of crap

    By jcab63692
    This app is useless. It can’t find its own equipment. I purchased the google Wifi. The system itself works well, not great but ok. The app on the other hand is crap. Don’t bother with it.
  • Great app but could use more features

    By Mikebel3
    Google WiFi does the basics well. I get great internet coverage throughout my 2 story home. Full speeds over WiFi everywhere. The app is functional and I like that I’m able to see there overall activity on the network. It would be nice if Google would continue to develop the parental features to compete with service such as Circle by Disney. Some routers even had Circle built into it. Google started off well with the groupings and such but it’s something they should make into a bigger priority. Overall I’m happy with gwifi.
  • Doesn’t work as well as Android App

    By MI Rocks
    Been helping setup Google WiFi units which are really nice, especially from the remote management aspect. However, with the latest firmware 10452.90.12, the iPhone/iPad apps in iOS 11 are unreliable for configuring labels & pauses. Most times if I add a device & hit save, nothing happens. Tried the same exact thing on a cheap Android tablet running Marshmallow, and works as it should. So hopefully an app update will fix this issue.
  • Looking for more parental controls and security

    By Chaitu B
    Thanks for such a wonderful app. Looking for more features like 1) Please give us more parental controls 2) Please provide more security features like end to end encryption of the total network traffic to and from Google hub router. 3) Please provide in built anti virus and trossion controls.
  • Needs Work

    By jg051275
    This app needs work. I recently had an internet outage with my modem and the app said it it lost the connection when I was away from home, which is what it’s supposed to do. When I came home however my phone connected to the Google Wi Fi right away but the app stopped working and the checking status just kept spinning. I could not check the router status or reboot it from this app. I had to do a hard reset of both my modem and the Google WiFi for it to work again.
  • Too expensive for the features

    By Gigogoti
    I choose Google WiFi expecting security and a great product. But considering how much it costs I was expecting more. Not sure why I need an app to configure it. Most of the routers use a web interface. Internet down = Wifi down. Why?! I cannot split 2.4GHz and 5GHz in 2 networks... I understand wanting to make things simple except that it is impossible doing what a $40 router let you do easily. I also think the app itself it is not very intuitive. Not clear how to update the firmware. Not clear how to find the setting for the light. Not possible to turn on SafeSearch by default on the whole network.
