As for the Nest WiFi packages, we gave the system a score of 84 when we first reviewed it. Both the router and the access points have minimalist designs and are easy to install. They also have a built-in smart speaker inside, so you can call Google Assistant from anywhere you have the hotspots in your home. The biggest issue we’re having with the Nest WiFi system right now is that it doesn’t support WiFi 6, which can be a deal breaker if you’re looking to upgrade your home WiFi to the most advanced protocol available right now.
