Friday, February 15th, 2019

Hangouts "Classic" is set to retire somewhere around the end of 2020, at which point users will be transitioned to Hangouts Chat and Meet. That leaves quite a bit of time that people will get to continue on with regular communications. Unlike Allo, Hangouts seems to be getting more attention now that there's a ticking clock on it. A new version of the Hangouts app is out and it's making some noteworthy changes.

No need to wait for Google Fi SIMs — Best Buy sells ’em now

Monday, February 11th, 2019

In all the years that Google Fi (formerly Project Fi) has existed, you had to order SIM cards online from Google to activate your phone. Now, there's another way to get them. Just swing by your local Best Buy store, and you might be able to pick up a Fi SIM for a couple of bucks.

Google says Fi SIM cards are coming to more than 500 Best Buy stores across the US, but it doesn't have a full list (call your local store).

The ludicrous Google Pay ‘death sentence’ can lock your Fi account and phone number

Monday, January 14th, 2019

Google has gone from a plucky search engine startup to a sprawling international corporation with its tendrils reaching into many aspects of our lives. Sometimes, that provides unique advantages. However, it can also be immensely frustrating when you run into Google's famously lacking customer support. As travel blog One Mile at a Time points out, that's a particularly big problem when it comes to Google Pay and Fi.

This tale starts as many Google horror stories on the web do: with a fraud alert.

Google Fi subscribers can snag a free Google Photos photo book

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

A handy thing about being a giant corporation is that you're able to use one of your services to promote another. Google's been known to do this from time to time, and it's at it again: right now, Google Fi subscribers can snag a free Google Photos photo book.

You can't get any photo book for free; the promo covers $9.99, which means exclusively a seven-inch paperback book with up to 20 pages.

Google Fi offers new customers a free month of service for bringing a number and device over

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

Yesterday, Google's Project Fi wireless service dropped the Project from its name. Google Fi had a banger of a deal in honor of its new nomenclature, offering up to $1,000 in travel gift cards with the purchase and activation of a new device. That offer expired earlier than expected, but there are still deals to be had. Now, if you port your number and bring your own device to the service, you get a month of service for free.

Today, November 28th, anyone who purchases a phone through Google Fi before 11:59 PM PT can get up to a $1,000 credit from Airbnb, Hotels.com, Southwest Airlines, or Delta Air Lines.

$1,000 for a vacation is an appealing prospect, especially for those already considering an upgrade - but, as with any deal, there's a fair amount of fine print.

Project Fi is now Google Fi and supports phones from Samsung, OnePlus, and even iPhones

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

 

Project Fi has made the leap that all fledgling Google projects aspire to - after around three-and-a-half years, it has dropped the "project" and evolved into "Google Fi," with a brand new logo to boot. Along with the name change, Google has announced that the wireless provider now supports "the majority of Android devices," including Samsung and OnePlus handsets, and iPhones (in beta).

The addition of phones from these new brands significantly broadens the operator's scope, since it previously only offered service for Pixels and select Nexus, Motorola, and LG devices. Google has posted lists of all the Fi-supported smartphones, including iPhones from 5S through XS, and Samsung smartphones from S6 to S9 (along with several others).
