Google has already announced leaked rollouts to most of its products including the Android TV Chromecast device codenamed Sabrina, improvements to Google Duo, and increased gaming through Stadia. This means that your WiFi is going to need some optimization to keep everything going in 2020. So Google is rolling out software updates for the Google and Nest WiFi systems.
