Google's latest iteration of its mesh Wi-Fi offering might be shiny and modern-looking, but if you have absolutely no need for an embedded smart speaker, the Google Wifi system might do the trick instead. And you can get a three-pack of points right now for the best price yet.
Looking to boost Wi-Fi coverage around the house? Installing a mesh network could be the solution and Google's Nest Wifi system might be your best option. But it can cost a good chunk of change if you're trying to cover anything more than 5,000 sq. ft. Fortunately, refurbs are available and they're Woot's deal of the day today!
The Google Home app is getting an update to version 2.34 today in the wake of the debut of the new Nest Hub — namely, the app has been made to support said new device as well as a couple of other more features if you're in a Google Workspace or own a Google Wifi or Nest Wifi mesh network.
Millions of people transitioning to working from home this year has led to more than a few problems. Products like webcams and laptops have been in short supply, and home Wi-Fi networks are pushed to their breaking point with dozens of connected devices, Zoom calls, Netflix sessions, and email threads. In most cases, a mesh router is the best way to build a home network that deals with these new demands.
Google's Nest Wifi system is designed to work as a set, but if you'd rather assemble your setup piecemeal, a single router works just fine on its own. Today, you can grab an individual Nest Wifi router from Woot for $130, $39 under the normal going rate.
The Google Wifi system is nearly four years old at this point, but it turns out that a competent home Wi-Fi system from 2016 is still perfectly good to use in 2020, especially with the updates that Wifi has received. Costco is currently offering a Google Wifi 4-pack for just $229.99, with the only caveat being that you have to be a Costco member.
Mesh Wi-Fi is a game changer in environments where a single router just isn't cutting it, and there aren't many systems more user-friendly than Nest Wifi. A set with one router and two satellite points will normally run you $349, but today, Woot's got a rare deal on the three-pack: it's $280, down $69.
If anyone knows the internet, it's Google. So it makes sense that its Wifi routers are some of the most well regarded products in its hardware lineup. Google expanded Nest Wifi's availability to more countries last month — and with people around the world spending so much time at home these days, it's no wonder. Now users with Nest Wifi and Google Wifi systems are about to get their home internet upgraded, because the company is rolling out an update that will improve performance on slower Internet connections.
We're all deeper into the coronavirus pandemic and that Wi-Fi router of yours just isn't cutting it anymore. You hate to see it, but for a lot of people, it's true. Well, if you've been looking into getting a mesh network and are considering getting a Nest Wifi system, you can save a good bit of money today through Woot's deal of the day.
