Google’s mesh router system, Google WiFi, will be picking up a new feature with Google adding the option to check the connection speed of individual devices.
Google’s mesh WiFi system is pretty neat, we’re getting more into IoT around the world and they’ve noted that on average users have around 18 devices connected to the system at any one time. While it’s good to get an overall network connection speed, they’ve decided to add the option to test the connection speed of individual devices.
Google says that knowing how good of a connection a device has will allow you to modify your setup appropriately. Modifications can include re-positioning the WiFi access point, or even the device itself closer to an access point to get better signal.
The update to test individual device connections will be rolling out to the Google WiFi app over the coming weeks.
