Google Fi Finally Announced, Now Open for Apple, Samsung, and OnePlus Devices

google-fi-rebranded
Earlier this month, there was a leaked pamphlet that revealed Google's plans to re-brand its Project Fi MVNO service. The pamphlet showed the new Google Fi name and its logo.

Ever since then, Google has kept mum about this leaked document and did not confirm any reports. Fast forward to today and Google has finally made that re-branding official.

In addition to the new name and logo, Google Fi announced new and important changes to how it does things. For starters, they have added an option for customers to bring-your-own-device.

Another huge change they introduced today is that they have opened their service to more devices including Apple, Samsung, and OnePlus.

By expanding to more devices, Google has given its customers more options. Customers who wish to activate service on Google Fi are no longer limited to Pixel and Motorola devices. At this point, however, iPhones are currently in beta stage, which means there could still be some bugs or missing Google Fi features.

In line with the new changes, Google is offering a $200 service credit to customers who activate service today. If you are interested, you can check out Google Fi's features on its website.

    1. It's a lot more secure than IOS, which bans you from using useful TOR, proxy, and other useful privacy tools. And while Google is considering turning over customers' personal data to the dictators in mainland China, Apple has already been doing it for a while. And as for Apple's secure cloud.... well, just ask Jennifer Lawrence.

    2. @ Anon 7:11pm,
      No one is secure from anyone with obsession, that's the downside of being famous and with a lot of Benjamin$

  2. & you completely missed one of the best deals of the year that they offered yesterday. Gift card (NOT service credit) = to the value of the phone you buy

    I'll be out about $230-280 for a new pixel 3 xl all told & that includes 3-4 months service.

    1. The problem is that you are stuck using T-Mobile, which even now isn't good enough for most people, and also two much smaller networks that don't add much to coverage.

      "FI" is still experimental: it might be a real game changer once T-Mobile completes its expansion and closes the still-huge coverage gap between it and the two nationwide networks.

    2. Wrong & wrong anon. Dec. 3, 2018 1:08 PM

      Fi is not only tmo, it includes Sprint & us cellular MNO.

      For everywhere I've been pretty much all over USA (except deep mid South/southwest) & international coverage / service has been great. In the city - fast, in the boonies when 0 signal our At&t & Verizon phones had 0 signal also, one exception was one spot in WI, once.

      Fi phone is not locked down to Fi service. My new $250 (inc. a few months service) pixel 3 xl can be put on any MNO today if I want to, I briefly had it on At&t already. I will leave it on Fi for the couple months that are part of this deal and then decide if I'll keep this phone on Fi or switch it out.

      Can argue about their service pricing but the quality is good to excellent & more to the point the promotion they offered was a smoking hot deal if you had one of the phones they were offering on your prospective to buy list.

  3. This project won't be around much longer. Google gets bored and drops things constantly. Besides the google name, Fi has little going for it.

    1. True. Because it doesn't use the actual major carriers, Project Fi also seems like an experiment and not a serious effort.
