Hey Google Nest Community,

 

We understand just how valuable connections are in life, from family to friends to work. The stronger the connection, the stronger the foundation. And these days, the demands we put on our home Wi-Fi are bigger than ever. That’s why we’re excited to announce that Google Nest Wifi Pro with Wi-Fi 6E is now available for pre-order! 

 

So what exactly is Wi-Fi 6E? As its name — 6 “Extended” — suggests, it's a big upgrade from Wi-Fi 6. While Wi-Fi 6 was built on the same heavily congested radio bands used by Wi-Fi 5, Wi-Fi 6E uses an entirely new (and less crowded) 6 GHz radio band.  As a result, 6E isn’t just faster than Wi-Fi 5, it offers speeds up to two times faster than Wi-Fi 6.* The first of our Wi-Fi routers to enable 6E, Nest Wifi Pro brings the power of true tri-band Wi-Fi into your home. It’s high performance Wi-Fi for the devices you use in your home today and is prepared to get you the most out of the next generation of phones, laptops and other devices operating on more advanced technology. 

 

Nest Wifi Pro is all about providing a smarter, and simpler Wi-Fi experience that you can rely on, with the speed, coverage, and capacity you need to keep your devices connected.  It has network optimization intelligence that works in the background to keep everything fast, like by adjusting automatically to minimize issues if your ISP speeds drop.  It’s even smart enough to monitor, diagnose, and fix some common network issues itself.  With features like secure booting and automatic software updates that help against hacks, Nest Wifi Pro proactively keeps your network safe, too. It also has Thread border router built in and Matter capability (coming soon), making Nest Wifi Pro the perfect foundation for your connected home.

 

* Up to 2x faster as compared to a Wi-Fi 6 router that supports 80 MHz channels. Wi-Fi 6E specifications are based on use of a Wi-Fi 6 or later generation client device that supports 160 MHz channels. Actual speeds depend on your internet service provider, network conditions, connected device, local regulations and environmental factors. Additional routers may be needed for full coverage.

Simple to set up and use, with your safety in mind

In minutes, your Wi-Fi network can be set up and connected to the things you love most using the Google Home App. You can easily monitor your network performance and help your family have safer online experiences through Family Wi-Fi.  With guest networking, you can share Wi-Fi access easily with guests without worrying about the safety of your home network and devices. Nest Wifi Pro is also equipped with secure booting and software updates to help protect it from running unauthorized software and router hacks. Take a look at our help center article for details.

 

Smart enough to monitor and diagnose itself

We all know how frustrating it can be when you have Wi-Fi issues and don’t know what’s wrong or what to do about it.  Nest Wifi Pro can monitor itself, diagnose issues, and even fix some common issues, so you don’t have to. And it lets you know if a simple fix, like replacing a bad Ethernet cable, can improve your network’s performance

 

Wi-Fi you’ll want to show off

We designed Nest Wifi Pro in a beautiful shape, finish and colors to fit into your home, no matter your style. It's designed to be placed out in the open, where they’ll perform better  - no need to hide them under a desk or behind a stack of books. Built with not only style, but sustainability in mind, Nest Wifi Pro is also made with over 60% recycled materials based on product weight.

 

Keep in mind: New Tech Needs New Hardware

Wi-Fi 6E’s 6 GHz band is new, with lots of available frequencies, which unleashes an unencumbered and responsive connectivity experience.  Previous Nest Wifi and Google Wifi operate using Wi-Fi 5 and the 5 GHz band for mesh connections.  Mixing Nest Wifi Pro with older-generation hardware would therefore quite simply just slow it down, and so mixing older generation Nest Wifi or Google Wifi with Nest Wifi Pro in the same mesh network isn’t supported.
