The new Google Wi-Fi looks a lot of equivalent to the first Google Wi-Fi
Generally, the new Google Wi-Fi appears to be really like the first—every gadget is a little, squat white chamber brandishing twin gigabit Ethernet ports, double band 802.11ac, AC1200 (Wi-Fi 5, 2x2) radios, alongside Bluetooth Low-Energy uphold. The 2020 rendition of Google Wi-Fi has a straightforward DC barrel jack instead of the USB-C charging port on the first form.
The more costly Nest Wi-Fi offers a coordinated shrewd speaker in every hub and a fatter Wi-Fi backhaul pipe—albeit both Nest Wi-Fi and Google Wi-Fi are double band 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5), the 5GHz radio in the more costly Nest Wi-Fi is 4x4, offering twofold the backhaul (association with the following hub closer to the Internet) throughput.
Home Wi-Fi additionally offers a Thread radio for inevitable home computerization the executives, yet it's as of now debilitated. Neither Nest Wi-Fi nor Google Wi-Fi upholds Zigbee or Z-wave, so you'll require a different center with Google Assistant mix in the event that you need to utilize Google to deal with your home computerization gear. Samsung's Smart Things center point is habitually suggested for this reason.

Google has various suggestions for the two product offerings with respect to anticipated inclusion: for Nest Wi-Fi, inclusion is recorded as 2,200/3,800/5,400 square feet for the one-, two-, and three-piece units. For Google Wi-Fi, inclusion is recorded as 1,500/4,500 square feet for the one-piece and three-piece units.
We don't suggest paying attention to those area gauges—neither the first Google Wi-Fi (three-piece) nor the new Nest Wi-Fi (two-piece) tried well in our 3,500-square-foot test home. So far as that is concerned, the specs on Google Wi-Fi don't bode well—you can't get triple the inclusion from a three-piece unit as you get from a one-piece. For the Wi-Fi backhaul to work appropriately, the satellite hubs must be set generally in the center of the main unit's inclusion territory, not at the edge.
In case you're profound into the Google environment and truly need incorporating Google Assistant brilliant speakers, Nest Wi-Fi is anything but an awful purchase, despite the fact that it is anything but a high-performing Wi-Fi framework in our testing. We see less an incentive in the less expensive Google Wi-Fi—there's no sign it will perform in a way that is better than the also indicated unique Google Wi-Fi, which reliably positioned at the lower part of our outlines.
The three-piece pack for the new Google Wi-Fi is reasonable at $200, however, given Google Wi-Fi's generally lackluster showing, we don't suggest it. The three-piece Amazon Eero unit is the most elevated performing double band, the three-piece framework we've ever tried, and it's accessible for $225—or if the cost is a definitive thought, a TP-Link Deco M5 three-piece framework is as of now $170.
