Home Technology Wifi app: Google rolling the functionality to Home app

Wifi app: Google rolling the functionality to Home app

On 25 May 2021, Google will disable most of the functionality of the Wifi app

Google, in order to help users control and manage all their connected products in one place, is shutting down its Google Wifi app for managing its routers and rolling that functionality over to the Google Home app.

The switchover will have two phases. Firstly, on 25 May 2021, Google will disable most of the functionality of the Wifi app.

Starting then, only the current status of the networks will be visible to the users, but any changes that includes adding new routers or access points, will have to be done in the Home app.

Then, funnelling all users to exclusively use the Google Home app in June, Google will remove the Wifi app from the Play Store and iOS App Store.

The company, when launched the Nest Wifi routers in 2019, has been working on this change, which could only be configured in the Home app.

The firm points out, migrating existing Wifi app setups to the Home app will offer some new benefits, including the ability to use Google Assistant for things like pausing the Wifi connection, testing your current internet speed, and showing a guest Wi-Fi password on a Google Nest Hub or Nest Hub Max display.

To drift a network setup seems to be a relatively simple process, although Google’s how-to warns that once a user switches over to the Home app, they can’t go back.
