Google Wifi update will identify your network's problem devices

Google Wifi Network Check Now Tests the Speed of All Your Connected Devices

Google WiFi Will Now Let You Check Speeds for Individual Devices Throughout Your Home

While it's good to get an overall network connection speed, they've chose to add the option to test the connection speed of individual devices.

Given how users on average have 18 connected devices per network, Google is adding a new tool to diagnose problems related to location and to better optimize the Wifi's mesh networking capabilities.

Network Check: Test the speed to any wireless device on your network.

Once the test completes, results are broken down by which devices are connected to each access point.

The new feature is expected to be made available in the coming weeks to all Google WiFi users around the world, so do keep an eye out for it if this sounds like something you might be interested in.

In a blog post on Tuesday, the company announced it will run individual speed and connection quality tests on each device logged onto the Wi-Fi network. Based on the results, you can then move the device closer to an access point or move an access point to alter its coverage area. However, with this change, you'll be able to see just how fast your Google Home or Wear OS device is running when on your network. But what about that new smart TV in the bedroom thats constantly buffering?

The continually-improving Google Wifi router is a popular option for those seeking to boost connectivity and eliminate dead zones around the home.
