When you walk into Starbucks, it takes you a while to figure out the WiFi, agree to certain terms and conditions and only then get internet access. Google is now readying a WiFi app that will automatically connect with free WiFi hotspots instantly.
The app is still in work and the company has been contemplating pairing it with the rollout of faster WiFi access to Starbucks locations all over U.S. These faster WiFi connections are expected to be rolled out soon and if Google chooses to pair the app with this, that can instantly create a demand for the app.
According to sources, both Android and iOS versions of the app are being readied. The app will not be limited to Starbucks alone and will be able to log you in directly to thousands of other Wi-Fi spots around U.S., thanks to a long list of Google’s partnerships. The search giant will also be working with Boingo to expand its already existing number of WiFi hotspots.
One possible way of authenticating the app users it to automatically authenticate using their Google accounts. However, don’t get your hopes too high since the app is still being internally tested at Google. Whether or not the company eventually decides to launch it for the public use remains to be seen.
