Support for OnHub routers ending in 2022

Since OnHub routers were introduced 6 years ago, a lot has changed. In 2022, support for these older devices will end.

To continue using the Google Home app to manage your Wi-Fi network, you’ll need to upgrade to a new Wi-Fi setup.

Timeline for OnHub router support

Before December 19, 2022

Your OnHub router will continue to work as normal, but won’t receive any new software features or security updates. We recommend you upgrade to a new Wi-Fi setup today. A special discount code has been emailed to OnHub users only, for 40% off Nest Wifi on the Google Store. This promotional code is available for a limited time.*

After December 19, 2022

Your OnHub router will still provide a Wi-Fi signal, but you’ll no longer be able to manage it with the Google Home app. 

  • You won’t be able to update things like Wi-Fi network settings, add additional Wifi devices, or run speed tests. 
  • Google Assistant features like “Hey Google, pause my Wi-Fi” will stop working.
  • OnHub performance can’t be guaranteed.

Prepare for the end of OnHub support

  1. Learn how to recycle your OnHub router.
  2. Upgrade to a newer Wi-Fi setup.
