Google Wifi router administration is having rolled into the Google Household app

Google is killing off its dedicated Google Wifi app for taking care of its routers, rolling that operation over to the Google Property application as the organization carries on to “help our buyers manage and take care of all their linked products in 1 location and enable routines throughout them.”

The switchover to the Google House application will occur in two phases: very first, Google will disable most of the operation of the Google Wifi application on Could 25th. Beginning then, buyers will only be equipped to look at the recent position of their networks — but any variations, together with introducing new routers or obtain points — will have to be accomplished in the Google House app.

Then, someday in June, Google will take away the Wifi app from the Enjoy Store and iOS App Shop, funneling all users to completely use the Google Home app. (It’ll also end supporting the old application at that time for existing end users, as well.)

Google points out that migrating existing Wifi setups to the Google Property application will present some new rewards, including the means to use Google Assistant for issues like pausing the Wi-Fi link, tests your latest net velocity, and (in a neat bit of product or service synergy) exhibiting a visitor Wi-Fi password on a Google Nest Hub or Nest Hub Max show.

Migrating a community set up appears to be a rather uncomplicated method, despite the fact that Google’s how-to warns it is a 1-way road: when you switch about to the Google Dwelling app, you cannot go back.
