Here’s some excellent news for those who’s been eyeing Google’s cellular service. Today, the search giant made its status as a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) a bit more official by changing its cell service from Project Fi to Google Fi. That’s right, three years after its debut, Fi is now no longer just a project.

Most important of all, with this, Google also opens its cellular network to “most Android phones and iPhones.” Initially, the service was available to a handful of Android handsets.

Google Fi works better with phone designed for its service.

But fans of Google’s phones need not worry. There are still perks in using the Pixels. In an email sent to its Fi subscribers, Google said: “only phones designed for Fi, like the Pixel 3 XL, unlock all of Google Fi’s unique features”. These include seamless switching between cellular networks and automatic connections to secure Wi-Fi hotspots.

I have used Fi for a few years now and have been a big fan. Thanks to the fact you can pause it, it’s even a great idea to get a Fi plan and use it only when you travel internationally.
