Google launches OnHub Router
Surprisingly, Google launched a router in collaboration with the help of its partner TP-Link. The OnHub router is designed in a way that it eliminates many issues that we all normally face with our normal routers, like: Slow crawl over WiFi, video buffering issues and unexpectedly dropping of connections. And to overcome such issues the most common solution adopted is unplugging the router for a minute and switching it On again with best hopes in mind.
Google emphasis on the point that OnHub router will give us Wi-Fi that is secure, fast and is easy to use. It is programmed in a way that its setup is quite easy and it automatically scans local airwaves to find the best possible channel for the user.
A unique antenna design and smart software keep working in the background, automatically adjusting OnHub to avoid interference and keep your network at peak performanceGoogle says
One of the great features of the OnHub Router is, it will automatically install updates and new features as those are released. And the router can be controlled by a simple mobile app that will be available for Android and iOS operating systems. From the app, all devices will able to be managed and you can check up your network. The app also has the facility to send Wi-Fi passwords to your friends. Unlike other similar devices, it is actually nicely designed and bit different from normal routers that are available in market.
The new router is available in US on Google Store and also on Amazon and Walmart. It is expected to be available soon to retail stores in US and Canada. Google also mentioned that it will launch a similar device with ASUS also.
Priced at almost $200, it can be considered a bit luxury item from the others already available in market. In few months it will be seen better how well it is sold. On the other hand, other router manufacturers will surely get new ideas from this product and surely it will give them an incentive to come up with something even better in future.
