Project Fi's group plan enabling you to easily share Project Fi with the people who matter most to you is launched today.
With this new group plan, up to six people can share a single plan, making it easier to "pay bill, track data usage, and manage settings for everyone," all from one place. When it's time to pay, there's just "one bill with straightforward pricing."
Google notes, that in adition to supporting new Pixel phones, they'll continue to offer "Nexus 5X and 6P" through the Project Fi site.
And, as a promotional offer, buyers gets a $100 oof on Nexus 6p, and $150 off on Nexus 5X, when they buy and activate through Project Fi group plan.
Those not aware, "Project Fi is a wireless service from Google -- you get seamless access to three 4G LTE networks, use data abroad at no extra cost, and you send and receive texts and calls across multiple devices. "
Features for Project Fi's group plan include:
For $15/month per line, you can add a new member for Fi Basics that include unlimited talk and text. As with individual plans, it'll cost you $10/GB rate for the data you use, and if you end up using less, "you'll get the unused data credited back in dollars and cents."
Since, there are no contracts or commitments, members can easily join and leave a plan as they please without having to worry about fees.
Since Project Fi's group plan is already available, those interested and already a part of Project Fi, can start inviting people including existing Fi subscribers from their Fi account page.
With group plan, while members can easily view their data usage using Project Fi app, managers on the other hand, can view "usage per member" as well.
Managers of Project Fi's group plan can add data safeguards like they can "set monthly allowances per member" and "pause data service if a member goes overboard," google explained.
Additionally, both managers and members can set data notifications to help pace their usage. And, with "data usage breakdowns per app" you can figure out what's driving usage and make informed decisions, writes google.
