Google Fi is rebranded as Google Fi Wireless

2023-04-20 12:58 by


Google Fi has announced a series of updates, including a change to its name. From now on, the mobile virtual network operator will be known as Google Fi Wireless.

"Google Fi Wireless is making it easier to stay connected with family-friendly pricing, seamless coverage and included safety features," Google's Karthik Lakshminarayanan writes. "We're introducing even more value included in your plan, with smartwatch connectivity at no extra cost, a risk-free way to try it out before switching, and a refreshed family-centric app to help you get the most out of your plan."

There is now a free trial mode. If you have an eSIM-compatible device, you'll be able to test out Google Fi Wireless at no cost. That's because there's a seven-day free trial. Google started testing the trial last month and it's now available more broadly. If you don't cancel the Google Fi Wireless trial within a week, you'll join the Simply Unlimited plan (which you'll still be able to quit at any time).

Another update is in the Fi app - it is getting a "new family-centric experience" in the form of a big horizontal list of family members across the top. Clicking on a person will show you that person's data usage and a bunch of parental controls. Parents can limit devices to only contacting people in the contact list (Android only), remotely turn on location sharing, or manage data limits.

Google is offering a phone at no cost for every new line that's added to any plan, as long as you make a 24-month commitment. You can snag a Google Pixel 6a, Samsung A14 or Moto G Power through this offer, which is based on bill credits.
