Google adds more worldwide data coverage to Project Fi

Project Fi will now let you know if you're covered ahead of international trips

Google's Project Fi now scans Gmail to inform travelers if service will be available on their trip

Google's Project Fi, on the other hand, is taking a more laid back approach to worldwide coverage.

We covered some of the new aspects of that feature recently, including new "unlimited" data for Project Fi, but this time Google is bumping up the number of countries that are covered under their global data packages.

That brings the total to 170 countries and territories where Project Fi can be used. The new additions include Nigeria, Belize, Uzbekistan, Uganda, and many others.

Project Fi users have always benefited from free worldwide text and data usage without the need to add an extra - and often costly - plan. The full list is at the bottom of this article. The so-called Bill Protection feature always caps your data bills at a maximum of $60 per month (for individual accounts).

The best part about using Project Fi internationally is that there are no changes to your text and data billing.

You don't have to proactively look up coverage, though.

Google also recently introduced its own version of an unlimited plan for Project Fi.

If you're a Fi customer, you don't need to do anything to your account to enable global support - it's just there. If you don't have one of these phones, you won't be able to jump on Project Fi without switching.

If you're set to travel and want to know if your destination is covered by Fi, the answer is most likely yes.
