Google introduces new router called OnHub

Google has introduced a new WiFi router to change internet use in the home.

Google has just announced a new product called the OnHub, and it is a router that the company hopes will change and streamline the WiFi connectivity process in every home. TP-Link has partnered with Google to make this router a reality, and the device's purpose is to provide users with faster and less complicated internet connectivity right out of the box.

The OnHub has 13 WiFi antennas inside of it which are used for casting signals and measuring the network traffic. The unit also contains a 1.4 GHz processor, meaning it can provide faster WiFi speed for the users. Interestingly, OnHub can connect to an application called Google On, and this allows one to login and distribute certain amounts of bandwidth to a variety of devices. This will truly make connecting to WiFi much easier for the owner of the router as well as guests.

A very unique feature of this router is that it includes a speaker as well as a bluetooth connection, so it can be used for more than just simplifying WiFi connection. The device is available for preorder, but as of right now they are all sold out. OnHub costs $199, will come in different colors, and also has a design that is quite different from most routers already on sale. Full release for the OnHub will be in the coming weeks, so for those who missed out on preordering, more are on the way.
