I received an email from Google telling me that Project Fi has become Google Fi. The big news is that it now supports “most Android Phones” and “Apple iPhones”!
I have been a Project Fi user since it began, and I couldn’t be happier. The service is great. Billing is understandable, and with my Pixel phone being on WiFi when no cell tower is available is a fantastic feature.
If you have been waiting for Google Fi to support your phone, now may be the time.
Here is the release:
Introducing Google Fi
After 3 years of growing with you, our Project Fi community, we’re excited to announce some big news: Project Fi is now Google Fi. Your service and billing won’t be impacted, but you’ll notice a new name, logo, and look-and-feel in places like your Google Fi app and your Google Fi account.
You can now also bring most Android phones and iPhones to Google Fi. While these phones get most of the Google Fi features you know and love, only phones designed for Fi, like the Pixel XL you have, unlock all of Google Fi’s unique features, including seamless switching between cellular networks and automatic connection to secure Wi-Fi hotspots. Since you’re already on the best Google Fi experience, you don’t need to take any action for your own account. Feel free to share the news with friends or family who might be interested in bringing a phone to Google Fi.
Finally, if you’re looking for a new phone, we’re celebrating our big day with one-day offers on all phones designed for Fi, from the Pixel 3 to the Moto G6. Everyone is eligible for these offers—whether you’re looking for a phone for yourself or know someone you’d like to refer to Google Fi.
Today’s update is just the start, and we can’t wait to bring you more from Google Fi. As always, please reach out if you have any questions—we’re here for you 24/7.
