Google WiFi now lets you measure performance of individual devices on network

Google Wifi in kitchen Google Wifi Network Check Now Tests the Speed of All Your Connected Devices

Network Check: Test the speed to any wireless device on your network.

The Network Check tech now provides details for the network as a whole, but the forthcoming update will deliver a welcome boost to Google Wifi router owners.

Wi-Fi is a necessity for tons of connected devices in our homes. The UI is not the same as the existing speed test-it's a popup on the same info screen.

Once the test completes, results are broken down by which devices are connected to each access point. As of right now, you can only do a network check on devices that can access the Google WiFi app, such as a phone. And when it isn't working the way you expect, it can be a bit of a black box to troubleshoot.

Uber , on other hand, is expected to invest $200 million into its food delivery business, UberEats, in India. The Deepinder Goyal-led company has hit $100 million in annual revenue run rate in March this year.

The app for it, which is used to set up and monitor your network, is great and the Network Check feature is essential for testing the speed of your internet, the connection quality between points, and the Wi-Fi strength of your mobile device.

Google says the Network Check update will be "available in the coming weeks to all Google Wifi users around the world". It also means you can immediately fix connectivity problems, and won't have to learn the hard way that your devices need to move.

The continually-improving Google Wifi router is a popular option for those seeking to boost connectivity and eliminate dead zones around the home.
