Google has released an important update to the Project Fi app for Android that expands the devices that can run the app. Previously you could only run the Project Fi app and manage your account from a Nexus 6, the first device that could run on the Project Fi network. Now with the addition of the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P, not only can you manage your account from those two new devices but from any Android device running Android Lollipop or higher.
The updated version of the Project Fi app is version F.1.5.10 for those keeping score at home and it is rolling out to the Google Play Store now. If you are a Project Fi customer you should see the update hit your device any time between now and the next day or two. If you are not a Project Fi customer you can still download the app to get an idea of how the mobile plans from Google work but obviously it doesn’t do a lot for you without being on the plan.
In addition to the support of other devices, the update to the Project Fi app also brings much a improved international experience. The update will allow the app to more accurately determine
which country you are in so you can get the most up-to-date information on usage and costs. For those not on Project Fi, the plan supports 120 different countries with free calling, text and no uplift in cost for data usage.

Right now sign ups are by invite only but there has been a much larger pool of invites being sent out since the launch of the Nexus 5X and 6P as these devices will join the Nexus 6 as supporting the network.
