Project Fi App Update Brings A New Widget For Your Home Screen

Project Fi users, there is an update to the app for your Android phone that will bring you a long requested feature:  A Home Screen widget.  The updated version is rolling out to the Google Play Store now and you should have the update come to you via an OTA update over the course of the next few days.  The widget, which is a dial that shows you how much you data you have used for your current billing cycle and will show you how may days you have left in the cycle.

The widget is a feature that many Project Fi users have requested as it gives them the ability to see how they are doing versus their data plan at a glance instead of having to open up the app.  If you

tap the widget, it will launch the Fi app so you can get into the details of your data usage over your billing cycle.

Under the hood, there are the normal bug fixes and performance enhancements but nothing really new from a feature perspective.

If you have a Nexus 6, 6P or 5X and are considering the service, you can read my initial review here and my six month revisit here.  As a Fi user, I am still thrilled with the service and the costs savings for me have been substantial while their support is second-to-none.
