Thanks to a tip from Android Authority I’ve found Google’s Wi-Fi assistant waiting on my Nexus 6P. It’s not currently showing on my Nexus 6 or PIxel C Tablet where it would be ideally put to use, but this is a very nice feature added into the OS. As you can see you get Google VPN services on public networks that have been confirmed for use. Nothing like an online access EZ-Pass!
And yes I do realize that the PIxel C is not a Nexus, but as we’ve all seen it looks like PIxel is the new Nexus brand … hoping that enables things soon enough.
