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

  • It's so JANKY

    I'm a college student so the google wifi seemed like a pretty good option. It was cheap and easy to use. However, a lot of the time on the app it will say my network is offline although i'm on the network. Another problem you can run into is the wifi point just disconnecting from the internet while you're in the middle of something. Also if you plan on my playing games on it from your xbox you're more than likely to have to setup a guest network and play on that connection instead of youre main one as for some reason the guest wifi is 100% of the time a stronger connection.

    I wish I knew what happened. Initial install was easy last year and my coverage seemed great for a few months. But then the app would report the system offline and it really wasn’t. Then the app would prompt for a retest which I did. This happened randomly every other month or so- inconvenient but acceptable. Now the worst has happened. I upgraded my iphone 7 to an iphone 11. When I tried to login to the app on the new phone, it would not recognize the new phone. It asked me to reenter my email and password. Still no recognition. I asked to reset the password. Google emailed me that there was no account associated with my email. I called and spoke to support. There is no product associated with my email-HUH?? I have been using the mesh network for over a year- this is my only email. So now I am literally locked out of the app with no way back in. When the system goes down there will be no way to reestablish it, unless maybe if I unplug and restart the whole thing from scratch with a NEW email address. GARBAGE!!!!!!
  • Pretty worthless.

    Can’t get help when needed. You are supposed to be able to set up times to pause the internet - like at bedtime so your children don’t have internet access on certain devices during certain times. Problem is, you can’t add any devices to the lists so you end up with lists of nothing that are pausing nothing. There’s not much worth in this app. I have sent multiple requests for assistance and have yet to hear back from anyone.
  • Forced firmware updates with critical issues

    On 10/31 our google WiFi devices automatically received firmware 12371.52.22. Immediately after receiving the update I experienced an issue where I could no longer see chromecast devices in my home unless my phone was also connected to the same node as the chromecast. This was widely reported by hundreds of users on Reddit and Google forums with Google acknowledging the issue after about 24 hours. 8 days later and they still haven’t fixed it, which means even if you buy into the Google ecosystem fully you still don’t have a working home network. I can’t believe they don’t test their own products together. It’s also unforgivable to force a broken firmware update on users and offer no way to roll back or opt out. I understand that firmware updates are important for security, but compatibility should be the number one priority.
  • Schedules don’t work

    I’m connected to my network now... and the app tells me it’s offline. I can’t do anything with this app any longer.
  • What happened?

    This was always great until the last update (2.15). Ever since this update I have had bad connections on the two that aren’t directly connected to the land line. Makes the system useless... I loved having it so I could have decent WiFi throughout the house but now the other two just never work! Worse than my regular modem/router by itself now.
  • Avg features for the price

    Need more ports, Not a lot of features on speed control or parental controls. You need to enable Google wifi cloud services and share your data, otherwise all the features of the app will be disabled.
  • Should not be limited to app-only

    I cannot understand why there is not at least a WebUI to manage my mesh. As a network administrator, I am not a fan of managing network changes from an app on a smart device. This app is buggy at times when attempting to make LAN changes, such as custom IP/DNS modifications.

    After most recent update the app says the network is down but I’m currently using it to write this review!
