Google’s wireless service, Project Fi, which only works with the tech giant’s own branded mobile devices powered by its Android mobile operating system (more on this later), is introducing a new feature called Group Repay. This latest feature is basically an automated system that allows a customer of Project Fi to split his group plan among up to half a dozen members of that same plan.
As revealed by Google through its official blog site, its Project Fi wireless service now offers a new group plan that can include up to six users on a single plan for an additional $15 per month for each line of service. The extra $15 a month price already provides subscribers with all the standard Project Fi inclusions, as well as unlimited voice calls and text messaging. And like the service’s individual plan, customers are free to get an extra gigabyte of data for $10 per month.
Google has just announced this week that the Wi-Fi Assistant tech being utilized in its Project Fi wireless service is now made available to owners of Nexus devices, no matter what network they are using. Which Nexus devices exactly?
Project Fi, the wireless service from Google, can already be used by American mobile users when traveling to other countries. By using Project Fi abroad, these users need not avail of international plans that could prove costly. And now, Google is giving Project Fi using travelers even more reason to rejoice by boosting its wireless service’s international data speeds.
In an effort to further expand its service coverage in the United States, Google’s wireless service Project Fi has officially added US Cellular as its third wireless carrier partner, effectively including the fifth biggest mobile service provider in the country as one of the available networks in Project Fi’s roster.
Google has decided to team up with American wireless carrier US Cellular in expanding the current coverage of its Project Fi mobile service. As explained by Evan Jacobs, one of the product managers for Project Fi, via a blog post published this week, Google is planning to deploy the extended coverage to all users in the next few weeks. On top of the coverage expansion, users can also expect improved connection speed and consistency in network quality.
Google has officially announced that it is making its Project Fi mobile service available to all mobile users based in the United States as along as they currently have a Gmail account. Prior to this announcement, mobile users who wanted to avail of the tech giant’s wireless service had to ask, and then wait, for an invitation.
Google has recently announced that its wireless service called Project Fi will now support data only mobile devices. This means that starting right now, users of Project Fi will now be able to gain access to cellular connections from tablet devices and other connected devices even while on the go.
Apple is officially denying reports that it will be going into the wireless business. Earlier this week, a report published by Business Insider stated that the iPhone maker was planning to launch a mobile network, similar to what Google did when it launched its Project Fi service.
