Google Project Fi has been here for over a year now, however, it is still as limited as it came out, at least when looking at the number of devices supported.
Before October 2016, Google Project Fi was only supported on three phones – Google Nexus 6, Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. Now that the Pixel and Pixel XL have been launched and added to the platform, customers now have a choice of five phones as far as this network is concerned.
Even though the list of devices supported on Project Fi is limited, Google has not shied away from getting the best features possible to this platform. There are thousands who already make use of Fi SIM cards in the U.S., where they can get the best cellular coverages from either T-Mobile, Sprint or US Cellular, depending on which network is the strongest in a given region and at a particular time.
Despite boasting one of the easiest plans to understand as well as monitor, the search engine giant is not done yet. Apparently, the company wants to make life much easier for Project Fi users, especially when talking about monitoring their monthly data usage.
The new Google Project Fi app has received some major updates that will now let users get more details from their data usage page. You can now keep an eye on your installed apps and the amount of data they use in real time. It gets even better as the new app will also update these details in real time as you continue using the apps in question. If you are the kind who always wants to be aware of the amount of data you are using, you should get the new Google Project Fi app installed on your Nexus 6P or Pixel XL right away.
The list of apps and their data usage in the new Project Fi app gives you more insights into how much data each app uses from the allocated 1GB per month. But to enjoy this, you’ll need to get at least version K.2.7.20, but this is only true for those on Google Nexus 6P, Nexus 6 or Nexus 5X. As for those on the new Pixel and Pixel XL, the app installed should be the latest, unless it’s not version L.2.9.07.
