[MUSIC] WiFi product. Today, we're excited to announce Google WiFi, designed to support the new ways we use WiFi. First, it's an expandable system to give you much better coverage. Unlike a single, central router, Google WiFi, a multiple Google WiFi point. Work together to do a much better job of delivering fast throughput to every corner of the home. It's modular so you can get the right fit for your homes shapes and size. Simply add Wi-Fi points to extend coverage. We've also designed the hardware to be visually settle and fit in anywhere in the home without compromising aesthetics. On top of great coverage, we've built the features set called Network Assist that will actively manage and optimize your network behind the scenes, so you don't have to figure out how to adjust your router Network Assist keeps your signal strong even as you roam throughout the house by intelligently transitioning you to the best Wi-Fi point, and placing you on the right Wi-Fi channel to avoid congestion. For those times when you do want control of your Wi-Fi network, we make it easy through a companion app. So at my house for example, it's sometimes difficult to get my teenage daughters to pause YouTube or Netflix on their computers and come to the dinner table. Well, Google wi-fi lets you manage the wi-fi access of your kids. If dinner's on the table you don't have to shut down the router. Just go to the app and simply press pause on the device for some quality family time. Google wi-fi is going to be available for pre orders in November and is going to ship in early December. Google wi-fi is going retail for a hundred and twenty nine dollars for a single pack And for larger homes we're offering a 3-pack for $299. We believe that Google WiFi is gonna make a big and immediate improvement in internet connectivity in your home. [SOUND]
