“Most of us have Wi-Fi at home, but don’t think much about how it gets from the service provider to our devices.” –Google
Google is making sure you know they are a force to be reckoned with. Their new product the Wifi-Blanket is not an internet router but more so a wifi "Mesh" for your network. You have problems with your wi-fi connection in certain areas of your home or office, this will be the product for you.
When going in-depth about how we get WiFi, Google then points out key things that make viewers understand our their wifi “acts” funny even though we just increased the data speeds like two days ago. Or why we pay forty dollars extra for what seems to be the same internet quality.
Now things get interesting when they say that it can be ressolved by replacing these traditional Wi-Fi routers with “Points” to create a blanket of Wi-Fi that can cover an entire house if you have enough. All that fancy talk means that you can say goodbye to weak signals and say hello to total 100% coverage with this blanket of wifi. With these points you can now have the fastest speeds possible since this device has “Network Assist” — Google intelligence that manages complex settings behind the scenes and makes sure you have the fastest connection possible.
Network Assist works in the background as a switch for the wifi band, the wifi point you are on depending on location, and the channel you are on, if congested (causing those slow speeds we all truly hate). In other words if everyone is online and hogging up all the connection, Network Assist will allow the speed to stay in high quality. When changing rooms you will be automatically be switched from one point to another in the background.
There is also an app that can be downloaded to help make this a very, very useful device. The app can limit its speeds for a particular user, makes guest logins much simpler, prioritize a certain user for the fastest speeds period. As well as powering off the point(s), slowing down, and quickening up the speed. When you connect your home to Google Wi-Fi they you can control other home amenities such as lights or security.
Now, sure "What does have to do with artists?", you may ask. Well for a sketch artist the answer is nothing, but for a digital artist this is a tool for transfering files. The Wifi Blanket is also great if you are a student who needs to stay connected, then you will have the “Perfect Wi-Fi”, as described by Google.
