Google has launched its Google WiFi in Canada and the device will set you back $179 CDN for the single pack of $439 for the three pack. The Google WiFi is designed to improve your WiFi around you home and the multiple pack is designed to provide consistent WiFi around your home.
The Wifi router does certainly provide strong coverage, based on my short tests, but the most interesting thing for users who might not automatically need improved coverage is that it also comes with a buddy mobile app, which makes it exceedingly easy to manage tasks that normally aren’t all that user-friendly when it comes to home networking solutions.
The app lets you do things like prioritize certain devices for when there isn’t sufficient bandwidth to go around, see exactly what devices are connected, toggle and schedule access for specific devices and groups of devices, designate others as network managers and more.
Enjoy Wi-Fi throughout your home, on your devices. Google Wifi is a home Wi-Fi solution that works with your modem and Internet Provider, so you can stream, download and share without missing a beat.
It’s everything you love about Google—smarts, security and simplicity—brought to home Wi-Fi. We’ve re-thought everything about routers to create an experience that’s flexible and handles your devices and online activities.
