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

    Bought Google WiFi as it supports MU-MIMO and is simple to setup. It was simple to setup and use and offers several statistical insights into your network. However it’s key flaw is that in an area like city downtown, which has 10s of networks around, the network barely works. It doesn’t have the smarts to choose a less congested or empty channel so it ends up being very frustrating experience. I had to run a WiFi Analyzer on Android to see the network congestion. It offers no way to change the Channel unlike Amplifi so it’s going back.
  • iPhone X Support?

    The app works fine for the most part (not that I run it much or need it often), but when will it be updated for the new iPhone? It’s been out for several months, and even shopping apps have support. How is it that a tech company doesn’t? Would love that and new features.
  • Horrible App experience!

    Google should really work out the bugs of their mesh access points and connectivity issues. The access points need factory reset if the primary point is even power cycled???
  • Missing content

    When setting up the Wi-Fi point the app says to unplug the modem then to unplug the Wi-Fi hotspot point. You never tell the customer to plug them back in. You assume they will but the steps are incomplete as you leave it unsaid and skip to checking the connection.

    When I first tried to set up the Google Wi-Fi I downloaded inadvertently the wrong app. I thought it was the right one since the search brought it up first not realizing I needed to go through the rest of the apps to find the correct one. I’m pretty much a novice when it comes to something like this. The support person that I was able to get a hold of had no idea what I was trying to do since it was not the app for Google Wi-Fi. He was patient but was not able to help because I could not get the Google Wifi app to install. I reconnected my old router downloaded the correct app and installed it very easily. It was a breeze. The only problem I have is trying to watch Live stream which our church broadcasts their services through. I’m not sure what’s happening. It just keeps refreshing the first 15 to 20 seconds of the feed over and over again. I am able to watch it without any problem using the iPad. So far that is the only issue I’ve had. There are three Wi-Fi points with 11 devices connected. Cary was the support person and he did a great job and was very patient with me.

    I am able to connect to the WiFi, but cannot set up the network. I keep getting an error message. No idea what’s wrong. Extremely disappointed.

    So easy to setup that I trust my grandma to do it in her own. It just works!
  • Simple setup, high speeds!

    I was able to setup a mesh network with three nodes in about 15 minutes. It’s literally 30 times faster than the prior network! What’s not to like?!? Working well in a 3 story house in every room. 67 mbit down, 5 up on 100/5 cable modem connection. I haven’t put the modem into bridge mode yet, so I suspect the double NAT is limiting my top speed. It was 2 mbits before over WiFi, so this isn’t an urgent worry for me. On the whole I’m very happy with this setup.
