Hey Y’all, it’s Rose, and today we’re going to take a look at Google Wifi. I swapped out my old router for Google Wifi a couple of months ago because it was overwhelmedby security cameras, smart home hubs, and other devices.

I fully expect that Google will release even more smart features soon. I’m holding my breath for Works with Nest integration and perhaps other security featureslike notifications if an unknown device tries to join your network. My biggest concern is that Google will leave me high and dry, kind of like they did toRevolv hub users and Google OnHub users.
