Google Project Fi recently fulfilled its promise of adding family or rather group plans for Google Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6 users of the service.
If you have been using the platform, Google Project Fi now lets you add another 5 users to the same plan and this will attract a charge of only $15 per month per line. The good side of the story is that all members will be charged equally when it comes to data.
Once a user has been added to the Project Fi plan by another user, they will be able to access all Fi Basics, which includes the likes of unlimited texting and calling throughout the subscribed month. Those already familiar with the company’s data charges when it comes to individual plans shouldn’t find anything strange in the latest charges for group plans. In addition, the usual perk of only paying for the data you have used will still apply across these Google Project Fi group plans.
Both the managers and users of the Project Fi group plans will be able to monitor and track their data usage with the help of the Fi app. However, it is only managers that will be able to check the amount of data used by each member in the plan as well as cap the data that each can use.
In case you didn’t know, Google Project Fi is a Google-based service that only works with the company’s own phones. These include the Google Nexus 6P, Nexus 6 as well as the Nexus 5X. If you have a problem with any of these three phones, you can also pre-order the latest Google Pixel or Pixel XL via the Google Project Fi page and you will get a free Fi SIM card on top of it.
As for the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, the search engine giant has thrown in some amazing deals where the former now costs just $399 while the latter is valued at $199, but these prices are only true if you buy the phones via the official Project Fi page.
