Google has overhauled its WLAN offering, the new Nest Wifi will inherit the old Google Wifi. It’s not just the in-house technology that’s new, the design has also been heavily overhauled and more and more recycled materials are being used. A sober round box has now become a device that personally reminds me of a dimmed bedside lamp. For this, Google offers three soft colors instead of the simple white of the predecessor.

“Ok Google, pause the WiFi for Tim’s console.”

Nest Wifi is more powerful than its predecessor; the new WLAN system offers up to 25 percent more coverage. A base with an access point should already be able to cover 210 square meters, simple scalability of course also comes with this mesh system. But other points are more interesting, such as the Google Assistant speaker integrated in the access points. This is accompanied by intelligent control of the network by voice. There’s more to the smart home too:

We also designed the Nest Wifi system to give you a foundation for your future smart home devices. Nest Wifi can connect to smart home devices in your home locally without an internet connection. This means that some devices can be connected directly to the system without the need for a bridge. Here’s how to set up your most frequently used lights and connections right from the Google Home app. In the coming months, we will also enable threading capabilities to provide secure connectivity for smart home devices such as door and motion sensors, door locks, and more. You will find out more about this from our partners in 2020.

Nest Wifi also requires a modem to connect to the Internet via cable or DSL. Google’s hardware is a pure WLAN system that will soon be available in German retail starting at € 159 (base). The base that includes the access point (PVP) costs 259 euros.
