So this has a Mic build in for voice commands, why? Think I will pass... not sure why so many want surveillance in their house for a small bit of convenience (When it works)

The specs looks fine as long as it supports all the important WiFi6 features

No it doesn’t have a mic. Some functions like enabling guest access can be controlled by Alexa / GA. But it’s not a listener.

Good to know! Still seems like a waste engineering imo.
Maybe it can be a contender for a future router for me then since you wrote that Netgear collaborated with you regarding wifi 6, so maybe they are more committed to provide updates for released products
