Google Fi phone service now works on iPhones, Galaxy and OnePlus phones

Google can now be your wireless carrier even if you have an iPhone

Google can now be your wireless carrier even if you have

Again, we'll update this post as we have more. That's noteworthy considering Google has a mixed track record in the services it supports: The company has discontinued offerings like Google Wave, Buzz and Reader, and though it still supports its Google Voice service, it hasn't put much emphasis on the service in years. Project Fi has apparently been a success, as Mountain View is graduating the service to Google Fi and expanding the handsets it'll work with today.

Oh, and Google is dropping the "project" label. Google spoiled this a bit by sending out "Google Fi" flyers (complete with the new logo) with some Pixel 3 purchases earlier this month, but now it's official.

This means that consumers never pay more than $80 per month, and potentially a lot less if they don't use much data. You can get back all the money you spend on a new phone-dollar for dollar-in travel vouchers, which you can use for flights, Airbnb locations, or hotels.

Among the current field of Project Fi devices - those which Google has personally deemed "Fi- Ready" - include its own Pixel 3, 3 XL, 2 and 2 XL flagships, LG's G7 and V35, and Motorola's G6 and X4 (Android One edition) which are now for sale directly via Google's Project Fi store. The wireless service is also available for iPhones for the first time, but the iPhone version is still in beta and requires use of a new Google Fi iOS app. Since this is the first time Google Fi is available for iPhones, there are a few extra steps to get set up, which we'll walk you through in the Google Fi iOS app. Indeed, that merger could also eliminate one of the major elements of Google's current MVNO proposition: that users can rely on not one wireless network but three.
