One of Google’s owned product Google Wifi launches in Europe and canada with a chipper price and a big alternative to Google Next wifi with a price tag starting at $99. However, since debuting in the US in October, the company is now taking it to Canada and Europe as a more affordable alternative to the Nest Wifi.
The 2nd-generation Google wifi looks as much like the 1st gen 2016 wifi, with an engraved “G” logo at the top side of the device.
In the Google wiFi every single pack bought can stand in as multi-pack acts such as a router and as such every interface has dual dual Gigabit Ethernet ports Compared to the Nest Wifi, which servers for being points alone.
In the Google wiFi speed aspect, a new Google Wifi only covers 1,500 square feet instead of 2,200 sq ft/router, as such too you only get AC1200 (up to 1.2 Gbps) instead of AC2200 (2.2 Gbps). Furthermore, the device is powered by a quad-core ARM processor with 512MB of ram and 4GB of storage.
Additionally, It’s runs the latest version of Chrome as its rolls out every time stating that you gets to update the software whenever there is a new stable version of Chrome, having new functionality and can be controlled entirely from the Google Home app.
This is re modeled Google Wifi and is now available in several countries in Europe such as Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
Meanwhile, noting that there is a wider availability in Europe than the Nest Wifi, though the service is yet to reach Asia at the moment.
In Canada, a Google Wifi 1-pack costs $139.99 instead of $229, while there’s a similar sizable gap in the UK at around £89.99 versus £149. Meanwhile, in France, a Nest Wifi router and point bundle is €259, while a Google Wifi 3-pack is €199.99.
