The Google Home app has replaced the Google Wifi app

To help you manage all of your connected products in one place, controls for Google Wifi and OnHub have moved from the Google Wifi app to the Google Home app.

You should transfer your network to the Google Home app to continue accessing your network settings and Google Wifi features. Migrating is quick and it won’t disrupt your Wi-Fi.

Migrate to the Google Home app

Important: The Google Wifi app can no longer be used to make changes to your Wi-Fi network. To make changes, like add or remove members, change device names, perform a factory reset, and run speed tests to your network, migrate to the Google Home app. However, read-only access to the Google Wifi app is still available. This means that you can still access and view the Google Wifi app and your devices.

New features available in the Google Home app

Features that are different in the Google Home app

Most features in the Google Wifi app can be used in the Google Home app today. Testing Wi-Fi speeds to specific devices on your network will be added soon in an upcoming Google Home app release.

Timeline for changes to the Google Wifi app

The Google Wifi app will be shutting down in 2021. Here are some things that you can expect to happen while the Google Wifi app is transitioned to the Google Home app:

As of May 2021

  • Google Wifi and OnHub devices can only be set up in the Google Home app.
  • If you want to make changes to your network, including to any features or settings, use the Google Home app.
  • You'll also need the Google Home app to expand your network or to create new networks.

Later this year

  • The Google Wifi app will no longer be available to download.
  • The Google Wifi app will be shut down and will only be able to be used to factory reset Wifi devices.
