Summary

Weight: 380g (Router); 350g (Point)Google Nest Wifi is available now in the US, UK and Australia starting at $149/£129/AU$229 for a single router unit. Also, while Amazon’s new Eero mesh network supports voice controls via any existing Alexa speaker, the Nest Wifi Point devices are Google Home speakers complete with microphones and a speaker on the bottom.The Google Nest Wifi design is a stark departure from the Google Wifi that preceded it. (Google Wifi will still exist for those who stick with the original model or opt to just add a Nest Wifi point to their original model.)Of course, you’ll need a smartphone with the Google Home app to set up the Nest Wifi, which sees Google making a big assumption about who will be able to use this router. Ultimately, Nest Wifi does do about 90% of the setup and updating itself, which is very welcome.As for the interface, Google has brought the major features over from the Wifi app to the Home app – like setting a priority device, creating a guest network and setting family controls – but it does lose a bit of the fine control along the way. This is especially impressive considering that our review unit only includes a single router and Point device, compared to the three router/points included in our Google Wifi setup.Here is how the Google Nest Wifi fared in our brief suite of tests (conducted on a 100Mbps service):Ookla Speed Test 5GHz (Download | Upload): 100.68 | 119.56 Mbps
