Google Wi-Fi Can Now Test Speeds On Individual Devices

This feature will let users test the connectivity of each individual device that is on their network, and from there they will be able to see which device is performing poorly, in which they can then try to reposition Google WiFi to ensure a more even coverage. With the updated Network Check, the user can figure out if one (or more) of those devices needs moved closer to an access point - or if the access point itself needs moved closer to a certain area within the home or office.

Or, Google probably hopes, add another router to the mesh Wi-Fi system to plug the connectivity gap. As of right now, you can only do a network check on devices that can access the Google WiFi app, such as a phone.

The company writes: "In the past month alone, we saw an average of 18 connected devices on each Google Wifi network, globally".

He is 0-3 in six ensuing starts, including giving up a season-high seven runs in 3 2/3 innings April 25 against Detroit. Kyle Crick and Richard Rodriguez completed the seven-hitter for Pittsburgh's major league league-best seventh shutout.

Starting today, we're rolling out a new feature to Google Wifi that lets you measure how each individual device is performing on your Wi-Fi network.

The Network Check tech now provides details for the network as a whole, but the forthcoming update will deliver a welcome boost to Google Wifi router owners. However, I updated the iOS version of the Google Wifi app on Tuesday and gained access to the new Network Check tool.
