Google Wifi App Description

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

  • Amazing

    By RyGuy8232
    Any review lower than a 5, you have a terrible ISP or you don’t know what you’re doing. This product works great. Easy to set up and gives you the strongest signal everywhere in the house- even in the back corner of a basement. Don’t believe the haters on here, there are no issues. Great work!
  • Needs QoS Controls

    By Atomx66
    We live in an area with extremely poor cellular reception and depend upon WiFi calling to make phone calls at home on our mobile phones. Unfortunately, you can only prioritize a single device for up to four hours, which only guarantees a connection to WiFi calling for that single device for that set period of time. Otherwise, the three adults in our home who need a dependable connection to WiFi calling are sometimes not connected to that service while the kids' phones are (the kids almost never make phone calls, so WiFi calling is not as important). There is no way to prioritize the adults' phones permanently, and we sometimes miss important phone calls because Google WiFi randomly assigns priority to other devices. It is so frustrating that I am actively searching for other systems that allow me more control over device prioritization. Too bad, too, as the system is great in all other areas.
  • Wish they would add one more statistic

    By Wangmeister
    Great app, easy to use and works well. I wish they would add one more statistic to show a historical view of when your ISP internet connection is lost. I really need that historical data to be able to see trends of my ISPs reliability.
  • Xfinity NO ISSUES

    By MoneySver
    So after reading some of the negative reviews I have to post a non biased opinion. I have had the Apple, Linksys and Net Gear products in the past and the Google system was the easiest by far! There is no need to go into settings to change anything it is straight forward and very user friendly. The waiting is a bit frustrating but what’s 3 min in the end? If you want an easy WiFi solution then this is it.
  • Does what it says

    By Duboisee
    It’s what you expect it to be. Takes a bit of time to set up but otherwise works like a charm!
  • 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

    By 20lewisaden
    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.
