We thought the company might have updated it at this year's hardware event, or at least mentioned it will be getting its name changed to the Nest Home.
Google Nest WiFi is a significant upgrade to the original Google WiFi with new hardware, and incorporates more Assistant features, the Assistant itself and a greatly enhanced control experience. You can also tap the point to play/pause music and adjust the volume, just as you can with the Nest Mini.
Thanks to Google Assistant, the Home Mini and the Nest Mini can also send requests to pull up a YouTube video over to your Chromecast-enabled TV and control Internet of Things (IoT) devices like smart lights, smart security cameras, and more.
Improved Mini's ability to hear you in noisy environments. The fabric is made completely of recycled bottles, and recycled materials make up 35% of the Nest Mini's overall body.
The system also works with the Google Home app, which allows users to set up their Wi-Fi, manage the network, test connectivity speeds, and share passwords. You can get a two pack with one router and one point for $269, or a three pack with one router and two points for $349 at the Google Store, Target, Best Buy and more retailers.
Happy Google day! The search giant announced a handful of new devices, including brand-new Pixel Buds, the mighty Pixel 4 smartphone, and an updated Nest Mini. Additionally, you'll see an option to call 911 right from the Nest Feed in your Google Home app.

Google's second generation of its smallest Google Assistant speaker comes in the form of the Nest Mini.

It also supports a home intercom function, home alert system and phone calls using Google Duo. For instance, say you have a Nest Protect in your home. For 30 days of event video history, Nest Aware costs USD 6 per month or USD 60 per year, while Nest Aware Plus, with 60 days of event video history and 10 days of 24/7 video history costs USD 12 per month or USD 120 per year. As this functionality makes its way down to Google's smart home devices, we'll see lights turn on or dim more quickly without relying on the cloud.
Nest Aware subscriptions are rather confusing and can be considered pricey for those with multiple devices, but come 2020, that's all changing. That includes Stadia, Google's cloud-gaming platform, which will now officially launch in the US on November 19.
