Those of you who have a Project Fi group plan might have been frustrated by finding that your promotional credits couldn't be used to bring the cost of your overall bill down. Thankfully, that's now changing as Google is letting users share credits with other group plan members.

Project Fi has been selling select devices at steep discounts lately. Last month, the carrier offered hundreds of dollars of service credit with the purchase of certain LG phones, or $200 off a Pixel 2 XL. Now there are two new deals, including a deeper price cut on the Pixel 2 XL and sales on LG devices.

Project Fi shutting down text forwarding on September 12

A sad bit news hit Project Fi users' emails today. Google's MVNO service is shutting down text forwarding on September 12. While I'm sure not everyone on the carrier uses this feature, I personally have relied on it since joining Fi.

Moto G6 on Project Fi now available in 'blush' color

The Moto G6 went up for pre-order on Project Fi about two months ago, and though we never covered its formal release, it officially went up for sale a month after that. Project Fi now sells the G6 in the 'blush' color, which I'm surprised Motorola didn't call 'rose gold.'

[Deal Alert] Project Fi offering $300 service credit with purchase of LG G7 ThinQ or V35 ThinQ

Project Fi only recently let non-Google phones join the party. Today, Fi has announced that two of those phones now come with a pretty enticing incentive. Purchasing either the LG G7 ThinQ or the V35 ThinQ from the carrier will net you $300 in service credit. Depending on how much data you use each month, that could go a long way.

The LG G7 and V35 are now shipping on Project Fi

Google's Project Fi service has always offered compelling pricing, but the phone selection was severely limited. It recently announced a handful of new devices, and two of them start shipping today. The LG G7 ThinQ and V35 ThinQ can be yours on Fi, but get ready to spend big to get them.

Why doesn't Project Fi support RCS yet, Google?

Back in April, Google announced that it was pausing work on its Allo chat client to focus more on its RCS-enabled texting app, Android Messages. News of an upcoming web client for Messages was released alongside the announcement (something we’d known about for months), making it seem like Google was all-in on its SMS and RCS platform going forward. Now, that web client has arrived, and RCS continues its rollout around the world. The one, slight wrinkle? Google’s branded carrier, Project Fi, doesn’t even support RCS. And there’s still no timeline as to when it will.

RCS (Rich Communication Services) has been hailed as the ‘iMessage for Android,’ meant to finally bridge the feature gap between Apple’s closed communication platform and the ancient SMS standard.

LG G7 and V35 go up for pre-order on Project Fi

Late last month, Project Fi announced that the Moto G6, LG G7, and LG V35 would be added to the lineup. The Moto G6 went up for pre-order that same day, but the G7 and V35 were said to be coming "next month." Well, it's now the next month, and the G7 and V35 can now be pre-ordered from Fi.

eSIM support coming to Chrome OS, may work with Project Fi

Chromebooks with built-in SIM cards used to be relatively common, but they've fallen out of style in recent years. As Chromebooks become more and more functional offline, the need for always-on cellular connectivity seemingly isn't as important as it used to be. According to recent code commits, it looks like Google might be bringing back cellular support in a big way.
