Google Fi Wireless, previously known as Google Fi, has undergone a significant transformation to provide enhanced user experience and expanded connectivity support.
With the updated branding, the tech giant aims to bring more clarity to its wireless carrier services, while also introducing new perks and features for its subscribers.
Google Fi Wireless
Rebranded and Revamped
Google Fi has been rebranded as Google Fi Wireless, bringing clarity to the tech giant’s lesser-known wireless carrier. The updated service comes with new perks for subscribers, enhancing the overall user experience.
Smartwatch Support Expansion
One of the most significant changes involves smartwatch connectivity. Google Fi Wireless now supports Samsung’s Watch 5 and Pixel Watch.
Simply Unlimited Plan
Smartwatch support has been extended to the Simply Unlimited plan, in addition to the pre-existing Unlimited Plus and Flexible plans. Unlike rival carriers, Google Fi Wireless doesn’t charge extra for connecting smartwatches.
In an unexpected turn of events, LG is reportedly in talks with Samsung to supply OLED panels. Learn more about this surprising partnership between the tech giants in our in-depth article.
Simply Unlimited Plan Pricing
Despite the added smartwatch support, pricing for the Simply Unlimited plan remains mostly unchanged.
- Customers get two to four lines at $80 a month, which includes 5GB of hotspot tethering and unlimited data, calls, and texts within the US, Canada, and Mexico.
- The three-line Simply Unlimited package has increased by $5 per month.
Google promises to reimburse these customers with bill credits for their next three billing cycles.

Complimentary Phones with a Catch
Google Fi Wireless is introducing a new perk: a complimentary phone (Google Pixel 6A, Samsung A14, or Motorola Moto G Power) for each line added to any plan.
The catch is a 24-month commitment to the wireless plan, with the device’s value reimbursed via monthly bill credits. Canceling the agreement before 24 months will require users to pay the remaining balance.
App Refresh & Added Features
A refreshed version of the Google Fi Wireless app is also being rolled out, enabling users to add new members to their group plan and limit who can call or text children in the group to trusted phone numbers. The redesigned app will be rolled out over the coming weeks.
