Years after the launch of Google's WiFi, the Nest WiFi Router is the first standalone router to be released by Google for 2019. Not only does Nest WiFi promise to help blanket your home in a consistently strong signal, but there's the option to buy an additional 'point' which works with the router to expand coverage and is dual-use - as smart speaker fitted with Google Assistant. But how well does the router perform on its own, and is it still worth buying without the extra smart speaker point?What's included:
- Pros and cons
- What is it?
- What's it like to use?
- Is there anything I should watch out for?
- Is there anything else I should know?
- Should I buy it?
