The tech giant’s wireless plan expands coverage and have introduced a travel-savvy feature for the peripatetic Android user.
Those International travelers that are looking to stay connected used to have limited options: like buying an unlocked phone and switch out SIM cards from country to country, put a smartphone in airplane mode and take advantage of free wifi whenever possible, or suck it up and shell out for those insanely overpriced roaming fees. But with the introduction of Google’s wireless service, Project Fi (fi.google.com), in 2016, peripatetic Android users got an extra boost, receiving coverage in more than 135 countries for the same rates they pay domestically—including free texting, wifi calling, and reasonable data plans.
EASIER TO USE THAN EVER
Now Google has gone one step further, expanding coverage to even more countries and territories (170 and counting) and adding a new feature that takes the guesswork out of the planning process. Starting today, if a destination is covered, the international flight info in subscribers’ Gmail will automatically ping their Project Fi app with a notification detailing data costs for the upcoming trip—no more run-around calls with customer service or nasty surprises when you get home and open the bill.
DOES YOUR SMARTPHONE SUPPORT PROJECT FI?
One caveat: You do need a smartphone that works with Project Fi (and the selection is fairly limited), but if you’re in the market for a new service provider and spend a lot of time overseas, it’s well worth a look.
