Until this week, those who wished to sign up for a Google Project Fi account could only do so using a typical Google or rather Gmail account.
However, in a new update that the company has just rolled out, it is now possible to get a Project Fi account attached to your G Suite account, much to the delight of the many who have been using these accounts. Since G Suite accounts allow users to customize them and use a personal domain, for instance, firstname.lastname@example.org, it wasn’t possible to use this same account to sign up for a Fi account, especially for those who were also using their G Suite accounts as the main Google account.
With the removal of this hurdle, it makes it easier for new people to join Project Fi without the need of creating a new Gmail account just for the purposes of Fi. This was without a doubt a major drawback for new Fi users with G Suite accounts, but now that it’s no more, the only major drawback of using Fi is that it is still limited to a handful of devices.
In order to activate your new SIM card, you’ll still need to get any of the five Google phones, be it the new Pixel or Pixel XL, 2015’s Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X; or the 2014 Nexus 6 phablet. Otherwise, you will still be unable to jump to Project Fi.
