Android adds 'Digital Wellbeing' for people to monitor their gadget use

Project Fi Group Google’s Renowned Project Fi Wireless Service Is Finally Coming to iPhone
| 30 November, 2018, 04:19

First off, if you buy any phone through Fi, Google will issue you the equivalent amount in travel-related gift cards, whether you're a new subscriber or not. What it does is that it utilises the existing infrastructure of large telecom companies like Sprint, US Cellular and T-Mobile in the US to provide services like calling, messaging, VPN and mobile data to all its users.

Previously, Google Fi only worked with Google's phones as well as some from LG and Motorola. And effectively having access to 15GB of data for $60 is pretty handy if you're an worldwide traveller.

As we reported yesterday, Google Fi will now support a larger group of Android smartphones along with most newer iPhones.

Pay as you go Similar to "pay as you go" tariff plans in India, Google Fi users have to pay $10 (Rs 700 approximately) for 1GB. And unlike phones made for the service, automatic network switching between Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular won't be active and phones will stay on a single network, which in the past has been T-Mobile. So if you're looking for the full Google Fi experience, including Fi's unique technology to seamlessly switch between multiple cellular networks, you can use a phone designed for Fi-like the Pixel 3, Moto G6, and any other phone available on the Google Fi website.

Some plan features will depend on the Android or iOS device you use.

If you are living in India (or in South Asia, Africa, Europe or Australia), you need not to worry about Google Fi and it's perplexing working scheme as the service as of now is available only in the United States. By expanding its network to other handsets, especially non-Android phones, and dropping the provisional-sounding word "project" from the name, Google is signaling serious efforts to broaden its user base and boost device support. For worldwide roaming, Google Fi users are charged the same price as at home. To get the full Fi experience, you'll still need a Fi-specific phone (which can be purchased directly through Fi).

Other perks include global coverage outside of the U.S. in 170 countries and territories, spam protection, and data-only SIMs for other devices, ideal for iPads. Comment in the section below if you getting this deal today and do stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more. If you make the jump to Fi with your current phone, an ongoing promo is offering you $200 of service credit (if you port-in your number), but only if you sign up today.
