Love them or hate them, notches on premium smartphones are the feature-du-jour at the moment. Google’s Pixel 3 XL notch is so popular that the company has decided to update its Google WiFi products with support for the notch too.
Yes, that’s right. Your Google WiFi might be getting a notch, or something.
Truth be told, we have no idea what this update notification means, or why an app needs to be specifically updated to support the notch on one phone. That we’re aware of, the Google WiFi companion app doesn’t do anything remarkable with the notification bar that would be impacted by the Pixel 3 XL’s notch, but we’re interested to see what this update actually changes, if anything.
The other dot point for this update – IPv6 port opening – is unlikely to mean much to most Australian users, for whom IPv6 isn’t supported by most major ISPs yet. The other issue here, of course, is that Google WiFi’s IPv6 implementation isn’t very capable anyway. Anyone wanting to experiment with IPv6 is much more likely to use a more powerful router.
Let us know how your Google WiFi goes with its new Pixel 3 XL notch update.
