Google has announced that its Wifi router will soon be able to show users how each connected device is doing on the network.
With the ‘Network Check’ feature, the Google Wifi can measure how each device is performing on the home’s Wi-Fi network. Users can then adjust the layout of their devices accordingly.
“Knowing Wi-Fi coverage is poor in an area of your home can help you pinpoint the exact bottleneck when you notice a connectivity slowdown,” Google product manager Alex King wrote in a blog post. “Then, you’ll know to move your Google Wifi point closer to that device or even move the device itself for a stronger connection.”
Google says consumers have 18 devices connected to their Wifi routers on average, which can sometimes make it difficult to monitor each individual device.
The Network Check feature will roll out to all Wifi users “in the coming weeks.”
