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



  • Long overdue for iPhone X optimization

    By JasonStiles
    Needs more configuration options.
  • Missing one thing...

    By JayNue
    I would give this 5 stars but the fact that it’s missing the ability to choose which band to use is a missed opportunity. Devs, please allow us to chooses between 2.4 and 5 as we please per device!!
  • Solid App & Great, Well Maintained Hardware

    By vgrund
    This is a decent app and, together with the routers themselves, appears to be regularly maintained and updated with new features. I do wish they had an iPad specific mode (landscape, especially).
  • Love your application but...

    By KyleRichards
    I really like your application. But can you please get your developers to upgrade it to support the iPhone X? I hate the black bars on the top & bottom.
  • Great but needs iPhone X support

    By Darturium
    Google WiFi works great and it has allowed me to set schedules for different devices in my home and enjoy high speeds. The only thing it needs to receive 5 stars would be to add support for the iPhone X screen.
  • Typical Google Ignorance for the Wrong Product

    By bboczeng
    Just to name a few: 1) force you to wait 3 minutes between restarted . Of course google knows this is ridiculous. Restart time depends on your device (modem) and would it take 1 min to fully start up? No. Google just want to make sure you hit the highest possible threshold for restarts so if you had further issues , it must not be a restart problem (to help their customer services) But come on, P99 of users should finish their restarts in 10 seconds . It is wasting everyone’s time if I need to re-setup the device due to other settings issues (not related to restarts) Basically, google it thinking that we are all idiots who can not even properly restart their devices. 2) can not activate Xfinity through the WiFi router. In the worst case , a typical WiFi router allows you to connect to it with your laptop via its default SSID and password . There you can change settings and even activate services like Xfinity. Google WiFi, on the other hand, can not. It assumes you somehow setup the internet connection without it and just use it to expand your WiFi coverage . So, even if I got google WiFi, I can not connect to it. You can only interact it with the app. And if Xfinty asks first time users to activate its service , google WiFi would simply fail to setup. I need to get back my old Ethernet desktop to set the entire thing up, even if WiFi and modem are properly connected. What a useless toy it is ??
  • Needs iPhone X support

    By wirelessnet2
    The app works fine, but I’m so tired of looking at an unoptimized app. I can’t believe that it hasn’t been updated yet.
  • Web Service Off bug still there

    By Rob McEwan
    Still cannot turn on web services. No access to family settings or network activity. It’s been a year since this horrible bug surfaced. Forced to return pucks to factory settings and rebuild the mesh anytime I need to change anything and then the web services turn themselves off again within a few hours. We get one update every 3 months or so and this doesn’t get fixed. Can google please put some effort into solving this???
  • Disappointed not updated for iPhone x

    By ceric20
    Disappointed that Google has yet updated this app to support the full screen on the iPhone X .
  • Easy (Just add iPhone X Support Plz)

    By Mlg Swag reviews
    Really easy and quick to use, when you need to port-forward especially. And when you need to change anything it comes in handy.
