Want a Google-made WiFi router? It launches next month


Next month, Google will be announcing a new WiFi router that will exist alongside its partners’ OnHub devices.

Google WiFi, according to Android Police, is going to be pushed as a product with smart features and enhanced range. The standout feature, as those other two are getting common among WiFi routers, will be the ability to create “one large wireless network” by utilizing multiple units as access points. To encourage you to buy more, Google WiFi is only going to cost $129.

The design of Google’s WiFi router is being described as similar to the new white Amazon Echo Dot introduced last week.

It’s not clear what the company will do to truly separate Google WiFi from OnHub, but the difference might just boil down to a device made by Google and devices made by partners.

The new WiFi router is expected to launch on October 4 at an event Google is hosting in San Francisco. The Pixel phones, Google Home, Daydream, and a new Chromecast will be showcased at the same event.
