Google's new OnHub Internet router is paired with a companion app, 'Google On,' that handles initial setup of the device, connection monitoring and more.
When it comes to bringing the smart router home and installing it, Google On makes it possible to set up the device using only a mobile gadget. One of the most innovative features of the app is audio pairing, which emits a sound to pair devices, rather than having users input a long, complicated pass key. Similarly, in order to make the experience of sharing passwords with guests in the home easy, Google On uses a simple texting feature.
Once the OnHub has been set up, a visual user-friendly interface shows the connection status and the number of devices that have been successfully added to the network. Certain devices can be assigned a higher priority to ensure bandwidth is properly allocated.
