The service was earlier available for Google devices including Pixel, Nexus, four Motorola models and LG phones.

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. Anything over that is free. Gone is the Project Fi branding and in its place is a new name and new look.

In addition to that, Google has confirmed that for an iPhone to work, it needs to be an iPhone 5S, 6, SE, or newer.

Google Fi ditches the old yellow and green color scheme in favor of a combo of Google's iconic green, blue, red, and yellow hues and now has plenty of the fancy Google Sans font everywhere you look. There's a sweet new logo that you can see above, which renders "Fi" in a Google-colored line art that is increasingly becoming a trend in Google's iconography.

Google is offering data services in the USthrough a Mobile Virtual Network Operators license.

Cell service actually comes from Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. iPhones will connect to either Sprint or T-Mobile.

Google's Project Fi is in vogue today.

The service throttles the data speed after 15GB is used. And while there were complicated workarounds that would technically allow you to use a Fi SIM on a non-Fi device, doing so was complicated and sometimes unreliable. However, The user can still bring their phone to Google Fi but to get all the benefits of the service there to need to any one of the Android handsets that the carrier offers.

Google notes that official "designed for Fi" devices will still have the best experience, such as the ability to "seamlessly switch between multiple cellular networks". 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. "Over the years, we've built upon that vision by bringing you features at no extra cost, like global data coverage in 170 countries and territories, spam protection, and data-only SIMs for your other devices". 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. If you want the full power of Fi's multi-carrier network, you will still need to buy one of the above "Fi-compatible" devices.
