Google is launching a new device, called the OnHub that pairs with a the Google On app for easy fast Wi-Fi connection. It can connect to both iOS and Android smartphones via the app, which tells the user how many devices are connected to OnHub and what kind of speeds they’re getting. It will also automatically detect the best channel to broadcast on and includes support for 802.11ac and 5GHz Wi-Fi.
The device looks a lot like an Amazon Echo, but the two devices aren’t otherwise alike; OnHub is purely a router, not a speaker or a way to access Google Now. The OnHub is available for pre-order at a price of $199 and will begin shipping on August 31st. Watch the video below.
