According to recent sources, Google is planning to release a potential router that is to be dubbed the Google Wifi. Expected to make its debut at the company’s October 4th event, the new router will share its “birthday” of sorts with the upcoming Google Home speaker, Google’s Pixel phones, and possibly the rumored “Chromecast Ultra,” a 4K-capable Chromecast.

According to the reports, Google Wi-Fi router will offer the longer range of connectivity then regular routers. It will also offer some of the smart features which boasts integration with Philips smart lights, IFTTT Support, all-in-one security updates and much more.

The new Google Wifi is designed in such a way that it can be deployed in groups to create a mesh network so that Data can be transmitted from different devices simultaneously. The rumor also suggests that routers will have to be signed and trusted by Google on the security front.

The event is shaping up to be a big one, so be sure to set time aside to catch up on what is announced. Similar to the “Chromecast Ultra,” information about the device seems to be shadowed in rumors. It is expected that the device will cost around $129.

That said, it can also be expected that additional costs will be required for the device’s hardware, as is the case with similar routers. As can be expected from the press release, the router can likely be thought of as similar to the Amazon Echo Dot.

Android police, who received the story say they were 90% confident that the rumor is going to be true as the deduction of 10% was just because the uncertainty of the deliverance of the mesh functionality

Feel sorry for all the people who bought the old Google router released only a year ago. It's not even received the updates Google promised ages ago - heck, the USB port on the device doesn't even have a function at the minute as it was never patched in!

Once again, don't buy Google hardware. They have a terrible track record for supporting their products past the first couple of months.
