Google Fi now available on most Android phones
 
email I got from Google, today:

Introducing Google Fi

After 3 years of growing with you, our Project Fi community, we're excited to announce some big news: Project Fi is now Google Fi. Your service and billing won't be impacted, but you'll notice a new name, logo, and look-and-feel in places like your Google Fi app and your Google Fi account.

You can now also bring most Android phones and iPhones to Google Fi. While these phones get most of the Google Fi features you know and love, only phones designed for Fi, like the Moto X4 you have, unlock all of Google Fi's
unique features, including seamless switching between cellular networks and automatic connection to secure Wi-Fi hotspots. Since you're already on the best Google Fi experience, you don't need to take any action for your own account. Feel free to share the news with friends or family who might be interested in bringing a phone to Google Fi.

Finally, if you're looking for a new phone, we're celebrating our big day with one-day offers on all phones designed for Fi, from the Pixel 3 to the Moto G6. Everyone is eligible for these offersówhether you're looking for a phone for yourself or know someone you'd like to refer to Google Fi.

Today's update is just the start, and we can't wait to bring you more from Google Fi. As always, please reach out if you have any questionsówe're here for you 24/7.

I've been looking into FI lately since AT&T coverage sucks where I live. This offer is actually really good. "When you purchase a qualifying device on fi.google.com, you can redeem a travel gift card in the amount you paid for the device, excluding taxes (details below)."

I wondered the same thing. https://fi.google.com/about/faq/ Just the first two or three questions there will give you a good idea of the basics.

If the carrier constantly switches are calls dropped a lot?

The compatibility page says my unlocked OnePlus 3 would work.

It only switches when there is a stronger signal.

Coincidentally I started another thread today referencing leaving FI to go to Verizon. The FI service has been very poor in our area, although it is nice to be able to travel internationally without having to make arrangements for your mobile data.
