Project Fi is now Google Fi and officially supports more Android phones

Google Adds Support for Hashtags on Maps for Android Devices. Started in 2015 as a somewhat experimental service, the network originally supported only a few Google-branded phones.

Now, the service will be officially supported on just about any mainstream Android phone or iPhone from the last couple years. Google also announced that Google Fi now supports many more smartphones, including those from Samsung, LG, Motorola, OnePlus, ... But one of the many things that make Project Fi unique is that customers will only pay $10 per GB for data until they reach 6 GB.

A few other reasons I've been using Fi for the past year or so include free tethering, no additional charge for worldwide data, and relatively low-cost global phone calls. If you don't buy a new phone and buy a Fi plan for your current handset, you'll get $200 of Fi service credit if you sign up today.

Google Fi, now exclusive to select markets, aims to simplify mobile data usage with smart technologies like automatic network switching and compatible Wi-Fi networks.

The service besides ensuring smooth transitioning among multiple networks also securely connects the users to the available public Wi-Fi networks. After that it's free to use, albeit with slower speeds once the 15GB threshold is surpassed.




To celebrate the rebranding of Google Fi, Google Store has kicked off a pretty big promotion that could get you up to $999 in travel gift cards as long as you buy a Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 2, or Pixel 2 XL and sign-up for Google Fi service.

Google isn't the only company offering Wi-fi's first network.

That's good news if you want an easy-to-understand phone plan in the US and have strong T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular signal in the areas you frequent. Google spoiled this a bit by sending out "Google Fi" flyers (complete with the new logo) with some Pixel 3 purchases earlier this month, but now it's official.

The report says "Fi-friendly" phones will "offer the best overall user experience for subscribers", without going into detail on what that means, exactly. These phones include special hardware and software to move effortlessly between Google Fi's networks and provide you with even more security and reliability through Fi's new enhanced network feature.
