Google Wifi will soon tell you how each device on the network is performing

Google is rolling out an update for its Google Wifi routers that is making checking up on the performance of each device a whole lot easier. The new update will test out each individual device connected to Google Wifi and see how they are performing.

The genesis of the new feature is to understand the dead zones that lie around a home. This problem is of specific importance to mesh router systems given dead spots can be a sore point with them. If a device isn’t getting the top available speeds, users can decide if they want to move it closer to a router or move the router closer to the device.

The process should be relatively easy with the mesh router network Google Wifi routers provides, connecting up to three routers to provide three access points and deliver blanket coverage in a home.

According to Google, an average of 18 devices connect to Google Wifi systems. With that high number of devices, there is bound to be an issue with one. The new update makes it super easy to troubleshoot the problem.

Google stated the update should be coming to all Google Wifi users in the coming weeks.
