[Update] – The Google OnHub team has now sent out emails to OnHub users indicating that Google Wi-Fi will work with OnHub. This is good news for sure as it means it isn’t a throw-away item but further development of OnHub itself is highly unlikely.
Today Google announced their newest home wireless network solution, Google Wi-Fi. Designed to be a modular solution to cover any size home, Google Wi-Fi brings optimized networks to give you the best wireless experience in your home available.
Sound familiar? It should because that is exactly what the company said Google OnHub would bring. That product, after months of frustration for users by the lack of development by Google, appears to have gotten its death warrant today.
Last year, we introduced OnHub with partners TP-LINK and ASUS to create a better Wi-Fi experience, focusing on design and simplicity. Google Wifi, built on the strengths of OnHub, is our next step towards ensuring that our homes can have great Wi-Fi everywhere we need it.
This new Google Wi-Fi is built on what they learned from OnHub but as for OnHub itself, it is game over by all indications.
