Google Wifi was one of the products Google announced and introduced during its October 4 event. This is a router which not only looks to offer you wireless coverage, but also looks to offer an extended level of wireless coverage. One which ensures that your wireless coverage does not suffer in certain places. In spite of being announced back in early October, Google Wifi has yet to go officially on sale. Although you can now pre-order the device, with units expected to start shipping within the next few days.
With that date approaching and customers expected to start receiving their units, you would expect Google to start the process of making the ecosystem ready and making customers more aware of what Google Wifi can offer. And that is exactly what has been happening. Google recently released a new promotional video which guides you through the setup process for Google Wifi and now the company looks to be preparing the release of the Google Wifi app.
The app, which is simply entitled 'Google Wifi', seems to work in much along the same manner as how the Google On app worked with Google’s OnHub. In fact, it does seem to be the case that the Google Wifi app is actually the Google On app, following a rebrand. Along with that rebrand, comes a slight refining of the interface with some visual aspects changed - like the replacing of the Google On two-tab design with a new three-tab design, for quicker and easier feature activation. Otherwise, much of the rest of the app largely works the same with the exception that as well as being able to activate and manage your OnHub devices, you can also manage your Google Wifi device(s).
As mentioned, the Google Wifi app is directly replacing the Google On app and therefore, it would seem as though the Google Play Store listing for the Google On app will be updated soon enough with the new branding and link to the current Google Wifi app. You can already see the traits in place as the Play Store URL does reference the new app. However, the main bulk of the page change does not seemed to have happened just yet. Either way though, you can download a copy of the new Google Wifi APK by heading through the link below.
