Google has added a new feature to its Wi-Fi network technology that lets users measure how each individual device is performing on their wireless Internet network.

The new feature will basically run a speed test on each device and inform the users which devices need to be kept within a closer router range for a stronger connection.

Globally, an average of 18 devices are connected on each “Google Wifi” network.

“With so many devices on your network, we want to make sure you have a way to know each device has the best connection possible, and that your home Wi-Fi is doing its job,” Google’s Product Manager, Alex King, wrote in a blogpost on Tuesday.

“This update to our Network Check technology will be available in the coming weeks to all Google Wifi users around the world — just open the Google Wifi app to get started,” King said.

Google said that knowing Wi-Fi coverage is poor in an area of your home can help you pinpoint the exact bottleneck when you notice a connectivity slowdown.

“Then, you will know to move your Google Wifi point closer to that device or even move the device itself for a stronger connection,” King said. (IANS)

Google is set to release a new system update called the “H Update” to its “Wear Operating System (OS)” with features like the battery saver, body efficiency and smart app resume.

“In the next few months, you should soon see a system update on your device labeled ‘System Version: H’,” a Community Manager at Wear OS, Google wrote in a blog-post on Thursday.

The new battery saver mode that would come with the “H Update” to Android-based smart-watches would extend the device battery further by turning on “Battery Saver” to only display the time once your battery falls below 10 per cent.

“Additionally, after 30 minutes of inactivity your watch will go into deep sleep mode to conserve battery,” the post added.
