The folks over at Google do seem to be on a constant quest to innovate and change things for the better, and it looks as though they are now working on a new Wi-Fi app which could make life easier when one wants to access wireless hotspots. Apparently, Google has already come up with Android and iOS versions of an app which is smart enough to authenticate and connect to its free hotspots automatically within a Starbucks store, or just about anywhere that they happen to be available. This particular Android app is currently undergoing trials over at its Mountain View headquarters before we presume it is released to the masses for them to enjoy.
It does seem as though this is an extremely limited test as at press time, so there is no guarantee that Google will roll it out officially just yet. Still, there is always the possibility of Google linking the app to its rollout of faster Wi-Fi connections across all 7,000 Starbucks stores in the U.S. which will oust AT&T, ensuring that coffee lovers can hook up to ‘Google Starbucks’ hotspots without having to go through the trouble of pressing a single button, now how about that? Technology has certainly made life a whole lot easier, don’t you think so?
