Google finally lets iPhones use its cell phone service

Google’s Renowned Project Fi Wireless Service Is Finally Coming to iPhone

Project Fi is now Google Fi and has a brand new logo. While it doesn't quite have the user numbers that the competition does, it's arguably a fairer and more straightforward service. It also offers several features like global data coverage in 170 countries and territories, spam protection, and data-only SIMs for other devices.

Unfortunately, Fi is also heavily restricted.

So it is finally official now, Google has at last rebranded its Project Fi into Google Fi and furthermore, the tech giant announced that the network will now add support for iPhones and most of the Android devices. 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).

CONFIRMED: Manchester United’s Starting XI for Tuesday’s Match against BSC Young Boys
"For me it was not a handball", Fellaini told BT Sport afterwards. "We had more than one chance, we had a lot of half chances". Arguably the biggest change is the absence of Alexis Sanchez, who didn't even make the bench.

Google has upgraded its Project Fi experiment and it is now an offical product.

First, according to Google's compatibility tool, only iPhones newer than the iPhone 5C will work with Fi. For those who bring a phone over to Google Fi, a $200 service credit will be applied to their bill. Since its inception, Fi has only been compatible with specific phones, all of which ran Android. 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. Thus, customers essentially can pay $80 for unlimited data service (users' connection speeds are slowed if they consume more than 15 GB in a month, though Google notes that less than 1% of its users typically consume more than 15 GB in a month). Google has inked deals with T-Mobile, Sprint and U.S. Cellular, and up until today, all phones running on Fi could seamlessly switch between the three, depending on whichever had the fastest signal; Fi also uses Wi-Fi hotspots for connectivity when those are available. As far as semi-current devices go, there are a whopping six "Fi-compatible" phones: The Google Pixel 3, Google Pixel 2, Moto G6, Moto X4, LG G7, and LG V35.

If you are living in India (or in South Asia, Africa, Europe or Australia), you need not to worry about Google Fi and it's perplexing working scheme as the service as of now is available only in the United States.
