Group plans are coming to Google’s project Fi.
Group plans are not just for families, either. You can add whomever you wish to your plan — but the limit is set at six, which includes the plan owner.
And while there will be some savings from signing up for a group plan — it may only be worth it if your family is planning to take advantage of the discount.
“If you want to add people to your plan, it’s simple,” Google said on its Fi webpage. “Group Plans let you easily add up to five people to your plan at $15 per month each. You can manage your account, keep track of data usage, and pay your bill all from one place. Data is the same $10 per GB rate for everyone.”
If you are new to Project Fi you can set-up a Group Plan during the checkout process — if you are already a customer, however, you can invite people to your plan here.
If you accept an invitation from someone, your old account will be closed and your number moved over without any service interruption.
To own a group plan, you must be at least 18 years old, although teens as young as 13 can be added as members.
For younger users, Fi’s quota option might come in rather handy as is the owner’s ability to manage additional accounts.
