Google Wifi Launched In France And Germany
Google posted a teaser GIF about upcoming product availability on their French Google+ page. The meaning of the image wasn’t entirely clear since it’s just an animation of some buildings growing out of the ground, as a bubble in the center reflects waves around. However, since the filename was “Google Wifi #3.gif,” I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to make a guess.
A single Google WiFi unit can act as a more conventional Wi-Fi router, however, through the power of mesh networking users can set up multiple Google WiFi devices in their homes in order to extend and improve signal strength across a larger area. Multiple access points can be easily configured with the help of a companion mobile application, which also gives users the option of setting parental control rules for the network.
Devices connected to a Google WiFi mesh network will automatically switch between access points in order to take advantage of the highest speeds available in a given location. Spec-wise, the Google WiFi is powered by a quad-core processor coupled with 512MB of RAM, houses 4GB of flash memory, and takes advantage of the Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11ac network standards while accommodating two gigabit Ethernet ports.
The Google Wifi mesh router is now available for purchase in two new markets: France and Germany. The company’s online store in both countries has the device listed for €139. The two-pack and three-pack will set you back €249 and €359, respectively.
