Google Nest Wi-Fi features: Coverage of up to 2,200 square feet | Network Assist selects best channels for devices | Manages up to 200 connections | Dual-Band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz
One of the most suitable devices on the market for Google ecosystem users is the Google Nest Wi-Fi router. This option aims to keep things easy to set up with "Network Assist," a system that works in the background to select the best channels for your connected devices automatically.
The Wi-Fi router offers coverage of up to 2,200 square feet. As a mesh Wi-Fi device, however, the more access points you add to the router system, the better the coverage will be on your home network. You can select a single pack that comes with one router and one additional Wi-Fi access point. Alternatively, Google offers multipack options, with an estimated coverage area of up to 4,400 square feet.
