Google’s Project Fi has just verified that you will be able to add kids aged under 13 to group plans on the network. It can be done as part of a new Family Link integration which would provide adults complete control over the smartphone usage of their kids.
If you are still not familiar with Google’s Project Fi, you must know that it is basically a mobile virtual network operator that depends on a T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular’s LTE networks combination and is also combined with many Wi-Fi hotspots across the US to provide coverage constantly.
Adults on the network can share their data with kids now. They can now monitor the usage of the littles whenever they want. Besides, users can set data limits for children as well and also set up data usage warnings for accounts. That could be done for all accounts that includes the account of the customers too.
That is not all. Adults can also include content filters for services like Youtube, Google, etc. for added security. They can even lock a smartphone remotely once children have used up too much screen time as per the account limit set by them.
You need to have a Project Fi group plan to utlize the new feature and add a child account. Remember you must also have a device that is compatible with Project Fi. Some of the smartphones that are supported include Google Pixel, first and second-generation, the Google Nexus 5X, 6, 6P, the LG V35 ThinQ and Motorola’s Moto G6, Moto X4.
