Description

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

When I first tried to set up the Google Wi-Fi I downloaded inadvertently the wrong app. I thought it was the right one since the search brought it up first not realizing I needed to go through the rest of the apps to find the correct one. I’m pretty much a novice when it comes to something like this. The support person that I was able to get a hold of had no idea what I was trying to do since it was not the app for Google Wi-Fi. He was patient but was not able to help because I could not get the Google Wifi app to install. I reconnected my old router downloaded the correct app and installed it very easily. It was a breeze. The only problem I have is trying to watch Live stream which our church broadcasts their services through. I’m not sure what’s happening. It just keeps refreshing the first 15 to 20 seconds of the feed over and over again. I am able to watch it without any problem using the iPad. So far that is the only issue I’ve had. There are three Wi-Fi points with 11 devices connected. Cary was the support person and he did a great job and was very patient with me.

Typical Google Ignorance for the Wrong Product

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 ??

Please update

Please add support for iPhone X. I have to use your application multiple times a day, at this point I'm very sad every time I open it and have to look at wasted real estate. It took more than Ten years to get rid of Two, One centimeter tall bars. It shouldn't take more than a week to fill all these beautiful new pixels that we have worked so long to achieve. I completely understand that making iPhones look better is low on the priority list here, but I'm begging. If that's too much to ask, it's ok, but I at least need a few more administrative controls over my network. I'm taking dev tools, I'm taking more informative diagnostics, I'm talking automated task control. If you'd like help, I'd be happy to send in my résumé. I could get a nice summer internship, and pay for more WiFi points.

Thanks in advance!
