    Google Fi is getting a rebrand, expanded smartwatch support, new free trial option and more

    Google Fi, Google’s mobile phone provider a series of new updates and rebranding to Google Fi Wireless. The rebrand adds a bit of clarity to exactly what the service offers to its customers.

    As for the new updates, Google Fi Wireless adds cellular connectivity for Samsung’s Pixel Watch or Galaxy Watch line to its Simply Unlimited plan. Prior to this change, it was only available on Google Fi’s Unlimited Plus and Flexible plans. Customers with a cellular version of one of those watches can now add it to any Google Fi Wireless plan at no extra cost. Unfortunately, there is no mention of Apple Watch support.

    Google Fi Wireless is also introducing a new free trial offer that lets you try Google Fi Wireless for free if you have an eSIM-compatible device. The trial version gives you unlimited data, calls, and texts in the US, along with hotspot tethering, spam call blocking, and VPN.

    “We invite anyone with an eSIM-enabled phone interested in trying Google Fi Wireless to sign up for our 7-day free trial to test our coverage at home, work or any of your favorite places before you move,” the company wrote in A blog post. “The trial works right on your phone alongside your current service, and of course you can keep the same number.”

    In addition, the service adds a new benefit that gives customers an additional phone for each line added to a plan, but the phones come with a 24-month commitment that requires customers to continue using the wireless plan. If you cancel the agreement for the period of 24 months, you must pay the difference with what you still owe. Phones for customers to choose from include the Google Pixel 6a, Samsung A14 and moto g power.

    Finally, Google Fi Wireless is introducing an updated family-oriented design to its app designed to make it easier for users to manage their family’s digital security settings. The redesign makes it easier to do things like make sure your child can go alone or text through trusted numbers and add new members. The company says this new update will roll out in the coming weeks.
