Google has today announced the launch a new smart Wi-Fi router called OnHub, featuring a sleek design that wouldn’t look out-of-place next to a Bluetooth speaker, and a “unique antenna design and smart software”.
OnHub has been made to get rid of the complication with Wi-Fi, able to auto-adjust to avoid interference and keep your homes network at peak performance.
This kicks off from the moment you plug it in, with no setup required.
Google will also launch a Google On app that can be used to prioritize an iOS or Android device, as well as manage the router itself. From the app you can see how much bandwidth devices are using, check your network, or see if there are any issues.
The app will also be able to store and reveal your passwords.
The router itself has guaranteed speeds of up to 1,900 Mbps with support for 802.11ac and 5GHz Wi-Fi. There’s also 4GB of storage space for update, a dimmable light ring that will show colour indicators to provide feedback, all in a circular design.
OnHub will also automatically update with new features and security updates.
Google will be launching the OnHub with a number of partners like TP-Link and ASUS, you can pre-order it now for $199.99 in the US from the Google Store, Amazon, and Walmart.com.
There’s no word yet on a UK release date.
