Google extends telecom service Fi to iPhones

Google’s Cheap Cell Phone Service Now Works with Most Android and iPhone Devices

The search giant is offering travel gift cards for those who will purchase new Fi compatible phones, and service credit for the users who opt for the service with their existing Fi phone. Unfortunately, any phone not built for the Fi network loses this functionality.

The iOS experience, which is in beta, reveals a refreshed look to the Fi app that all users should hope to see in the near term. After that it's free to use, albeit with slower speeds once the 15GB threshold is surpassed.

Fi plans in the USA offer unlimited domestic call and texts, plus texting internationally, for $20 monthly.

It's important to note that all the pricing for Google Fi is in United States dollars, so, you'll need to do some maths to ensure their prices are reasonable.

Google changed the name of its MVNO service from Project Fi to Google Fi and added a new bring-your-own-device option that will allow the service to work on most Android phones and iPhones.

Pixel phones, and a select number of other Android phones, can dynamically switch between these networks, and use which ever cell tower has the strongest signal. iPhones, and Android phones not optimized for Fi, rely on T-Mobile's network by default.

You will receive an email from Google Fi around 75 to 90 days after device activation. "These phones include special hardware and software to move effortlessly between Google Fi's networks and provide you with even more security and reliability through Fi's new enhanced network feature".

Google's Project Fi has now been rebranded as "Google Fi" and almost any Android smartphone can now be used in conjunction with the mobile carrier services, according to a new announcement from the search giant. Google says that Google Fi will support "popular Android phones" including devices from Samsung, Motorola and OnePlus. iPhone support is now listed as being in beta (you can grab the Google Fi iOS app here). In order to access all features, Google recommends using a phone specifically designed for Google Fi. Then you'll need a phone that's officially created to support Fi. Today only, if you sign up for new Google Fi service and buy a new phone, you will get gift cards that total up to the full cost of the phone.

Your Android phone needs to be on Nougat or later, while iPhones need to be on iOS 11 or later.
