Google Home Software Update Teases a New Nest Wi-Fi Router May Be Coming





Google may have unintentionally teased a new Nest Wi-Fi router in an update to its Home app.

The latest software update to Google Home – version 3.4 – hints at a new Nest Wi-Fi model GS4VD codenamed Breeza or BRZA, according to 9 to 5 Google. Since Google lists other models in the Home App, Breeza heavily points to another addition to Google’s Nest Wi-Fi lineup.

Google was not immediately available for comment.

A new Wi-Fi router would fall in line with Google’s ambitions to have a larger presence in your home. The company has expanded from smart speakers to smart displays and has steadily bulked up its lineup of mesh Wi-Fi products. 

Google typically holds a fall product event to launch devices like the Pixel smartphone. It would make sense for a new Wi-Fi router to debut there. 

Google’s Nest Wi-Fi differs from a single router system. With one router, internet coverage can be spotty if you stray too far from it. While you can buy extenders to add range to your connection, it can come at the expense of your Wi-Fi’s performance. Google describes its Mesh Wi-Fi router as a “scalable system” covering your entire home with reliably strong Wi-Fi 6E speeds up to 5.4 Gbps.

Nest Wi-Fi Pro was the first Google router to offer fast connections via the higher speed Wi-Fi 6E standard. It provides an additional band forming a tri-band router that supports 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 5 GHz frequencies. When paired with Wi-Fi 6E-enabled devices, users experience less congestion and up to two times higher speeds than Wi-Fi 6, which runs 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz Lo, and 5 GHz Hi frequency bands.

Google also said it will end support for Nest Secure on April 8, 2024. Nest Secure won’t work in the Google Nest app or connect to the internet. Customers who use this as a bridge to connect Nest x Yale Lock to Wi-Fi will need to switch to Nest Connect. Google will ship you a free Nest Connect and provide a paid postage shipping label to mail your Nest Secure to a recycling center.
