Google Project Fi might not be popular like Verizon Wireless or T-Mobile, but it is for sure gaining traction with each passing day.
Off the back of announcing that last year’s Project Fi $20 referral program will continue indefinitely, the search engine giant is now rolling out a new and improved version of the Project Fi by Google app. The application is available via the Google Play Store and as such, the update is also available via the same platform.
With the Project Fi by Google app, users of this wireless service can easily activate the service on a compatible phone, manage the account and access various settings, check data usage, check monthly statements as well as reach the service’s support team on a 24/7 basis. Now, in addition to this, the currently rolling out Project Fi version M+ adds more capabilities to this application.
Once you get the new version, the Google Project Fi team notes that users will now be able to receive several minor bug fixes as well as the usual performance improvements – but there is more to these performance improvements. Apparently, those using the updated version and are managers or rather owners of a given Group Plan will now be able to cancel the entire plan right from within the Project Fi app.
Google introduced Project Fi Group Plans towards the end of last year and this was welcomed with open arms. The Group Plans allow up to six members per plan, meaning that current users of Fi (Owners) can invite or rather add another five people to their initial plan. In this way, the new five faces will be charged $15/month each, unlike the owner who is charged $20 per month. Either way, you get unlimited calls and SMS to all local networks and paying an additional $10/month per line earns each member 1GB of data. What makes Google Project Fi a go-to wireless service is that it will only charge you for the amount of data used in a month and refund you the balance.
On the downside, the service is only available on a few select devices from the company – Google Pixel phones, Google Nexus 5X and 6P as well as Google Nexus 6.
