NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 15, 2016) - After its announcement almost two months ago, Google Wifi has finally hit the market and is available for preorder at B&H Photo for just $129. It is the first wireless router from the tech giant, which promises wall-to-wall coverage and a unique Network Assist feature that uses logic to optimize connections.
Google Wifi sports a sleek, simple design and is roughly the size of two hockey pucks stacked on top of each other. It is available as a 1-pack ($129) that covers a small apartment up to 1500 square feet or a 3-pack ($299) that covers up to 4500 square feet. The 3-pack includes Network Assist, an innovative feature that automatically connects a device to the closest access point. With Network Assist, network congestion is improved and users can walk freely around their homes without getting disconnected or losing signal strength.
Additionally, the wireless system also comes with a free mobile app that gives admins clear control over the network. It has built-in parental control which can pause and resume internet connection to any device with the push of a button. Google says that additional parental control features will come in a software update.
