Google Home 2 could be your subsequent Wi-Fi router, too

In a ever-competitive intelligent orator wars, Google might shortly have a new entrant to take on a likes of Amazon Echo, giving we consummate in-home Wi-Fi coverage to boot.

The hunt hulk is apparently introspective an updated Google Home that facilities “built-in filigree Wi-Fi networking”, according to The Information, vocalization to a chairman with believe of Google’s plot.

Google Home 2, as we’ll call it, would radically be aping a core underline of a Google Wifi router, delivering a one-two punch of intelligent orator partner and in-home internet use in a singular package.

This we can get behind: we favourite Google Wifi for a elementary set-up and able coverage so much, we gave it an Editor’s Choice rating in a review. And Google Home is no slouch; yet it’s still got a prolonged approach to go, it’s already an considerable supporter corroborated by Google Assistant that will usually get improved with time. 

Priced right?

However, a large doubt on a rumored device is how most one – or mixed – will cost.

Let us explain: while a singular Wifi puck sells for $129 (£129, around AU$167), we need some-more than one to make a mesh. A contingent of Google Wifi retails for $299 (about AU$389), and in a UK dual units are sole for £229.

Google Home, meanwhile, costs $129 (£129, around AU$170). The new Google Home 2 cost could already be aloft if it offers some-more facilities (such as voice calling and multiple user support), and if we need some-more than one to emanate a Wi-Fi network, we could be forking over utterly a bit.

Google is generally cost unwavering with a products, so an unreasonable volume isn’t likely. Still, a cost of some-more than one Google Home 2 could give users postponement before purchasing, generally deliberation Amazon Echo is still usually $179 (£150, around AU$230). 

If a Google Home 2 with Wi-Fi is in a works, chances are we’ll see it during May’s Google IO 2017 developer conference, with it going on sale shortly after.
