Google might have changed their name, but they still know a thing or two about the way everyone Internets. Their latest creation, outside of Alphabet, isn’t a new email client, or a search engine, or even a website—it’s a router called OnHub. OnHub is being billed as “a router for the new way to Wi-Fi,” and based on what we’ve seen so far, it does just that. No more blinking lights for status updates. No more reading 42-character passwords with special characters, punctuation marks and numbers aloud. No more ridiculous tech support phone calls or online forum explorations to try to figure out what’s wrong. In combination with the Google On app, OnHub can give you total numbers of connected devices, bandwidth usage statistics and even share passwords—while still giving you 1900 Mbps speeds across both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies using 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and some other next-gen technologies that aren’t even in use yet. As if that isn’t enough to convince you this thing is the new brain of your smart home, it’s also packing 13 antennas in a unique circular pattern for omnidirectional coverage.
