Google Home has stepped up its game by introducing dashing new updates.
Nest Wifi Pro: Speedy Connection Without Lags
Google Home introduces a more efficient Nest Wifi Pro. It is an upgraded router by Google with better connections and faster speeds. This small but practical router comes with soft earth tones like Snow, Linen, Fog and Lemongrass.
The simplicity of its design and colour will contribute to the aesthetics of your house. It adds a touch of serenity and elegance, but fear not: Google Home virtues beauty and usefulness. You will get the best of both worlds with this upgraded router from Google Home.
Nest Wifi Pro comes with a Wi-Fi 6E (E, which is short for ‘Extended’), offering two times faster speed than the old Wi-Fi 6. Google Home guarantees the efficiency of its service by analysing your network performance and optimising your connection. This is to ensure your devices will run smoothly without any unnecessary lags.
Easy to Install
It is no hassle. All you need to do is set the router by using the Google Home app and follow the instructions given. Furthermore, there is no additional cost for other installations. Setting up the Family Wi-Fi for your kids will be as easy. You will get more than what you bargained for.
This device is applicable to monitor the safety of your network. In addition, Nest Wifi Pro functions as a speed-run test, sharing the password with other users and easy set-up for a guest network.
No More Harmful Connections
Not only that, Nest Wifi Pro diligently scans any harmful connection and router hacks. A protected connection is a guarantee for this device because the router actively updates its software.
Nest Wifi Pro teams up with Matter (a new intelligent home protocol that launches soon) as an all-in-one controller. The router can control and connect every Matter-enabled device for better home management.
There are three packs of Nest Wifi Pro to choose from: $399.99 for a three-pack. It covers the coverage up to 6,600 square feet. For a two-pack, Nest Wifi Pro retails at $299.00. Lastly, $199.99 is one pack that accommodates homes of all sizes.
Pre-order begins on 4 October 2022 and is available for online and offline purchases starting 27 October 2022.
Nest Doorbell: Security in Sleek Elegance
Google Home does not only excel in connectivity, but it also champions security.
The second-generation wired Nest Doorbell is versatile in its functionality. You do not have to charge the battery since it is wired. As it is connected to the Wi-Fi, even if the connection is a bit laggy, the Nest Doorbell will keep track of an hour’s worth of footage automatically to its local memory.
No More Pixelated Image
Providing you with the clearest image, Nest Doorbell captures pictures even when the days are dark and raining. The images will appear natural as Google deletes the fish-eye effect that distorts the view you see with smart cameras. HDR captures little details in areas with shadows or bright lights. Thus, it shows a clear image once viewed in the memory.
DXOMark remarks that the Google Nest is one of the best camera doorbells after close inspection and tests. In their testimony, they acclaim that this device gives the highest image of quality and accuracy. Google Nest Doorbell allows owners to recognise anyone at the door regardless of time.
The built-in smart features, such as sees-on-device, machine learning, and talk and listen, ease the process of identifying strangers at the doorstep. You can also chat with visitors from anywhere, and give quick responses with pre-recorded messages.
Besides that, Google Nest Doorbell is easier to control with the help of Google Home. You can set up a Household Routine on the app and customise the workability of your doorbell. You can add or omit any wanted or unwanted options by customising your Google Nest Doorbell to your taste.
The colours; Snow, Linen, Ash and Ivy are the perfect accompaniment to any home that prefers simple and minimalistic design. And what a surprise: this upgraded doorbell is made up by using approximately 43% recycled materials! Not only is it beautiful to the eye, but it is also safe for the environment.
Nest Doorbell is available in the U.S on 4 October 2022 at $179.99. It is also available in Canada (on the same date as the U.S) for $239.99 in Snow and Ash colour.

Google Home: A New Look
Google Home will undergo a stark transformation in the coming months.
The Google Home app for Android and iOs introduce fewer taps with distinct customisation.
