Google Wi-Fi Can Now Test Speeds On Individual Devices

Google Wi-fi Network now has the ability to test the internet speeds of individual devices rather than the network as a whole or the Google Wi-fi access points.

For example, if your smart TV is showing a grainy picture streaming a show the Google Wi-fi will measure how the device is performing on the network.

In a post Google explains, ‘Knowing Wi-Fi coverage is poor in an area of your home can help you pinpoint the exact bottleneck when you notice a connectivity slowdown. Then, you’ll know to move your Google Wi-Fi point closer to that device or even move the device itself for a stronger connection.’

To test a device’s internet strength go onto the Google Wi-Fi app.

This feature is rolling out today and will be available in the coming weeks to all Google Wifi users around the world.
