The Design on the new Google Nest Wi-Fi is one of the best in its class if you were to compare. Unlike the previous Google Wi-Fi devices (which was not as elegant as this), the new Google Nest WiFi comes with a very nice design which is sure to add a very aesthetic appeal to your home.
Google saw that a lot of individuals often do not go for a wireless router because of their ridiculous designs most times. This time, they have decided to change all that. The router is smooth and has a lot of holes at the bottom. These holes are acceptable giving the fact that it serves as speakers.
The color of the router is white and the companion extenders often come in with three different colors, snow, sand and mist.
