Google said last month that it plans to build a small wireless service that would allow it to function sort of like Verizon, AT&T, or any other carrier.

Google's Sundar Pichai said at Mobile World Congress that the company would make its own wireless service "at a small scale" after The Information's Amir Efrati initially reported Google's plans.

Based on the information discovered, here's what we now know about Google's mobile service:
  • The service is being called "Project Fi" internally, and it looks like the app is being called "Tycho." These are likely just code names being used within Google, and may not reflect the service's final title.
  • The app accompanying Google's wireless service lets you take care of billing, view data usage, and managing details about your plan.
  • You can even change your phone number, close an account, or activate your account from within the app.
  • You'll be able to set up multiple phone lines and share data across devices, like you would with any other carrier.
  • It looks like you can switch your plan to different phones without having to change a SIM card through an option called "Make primary device."
  • The service may be based on Sprint and T-Mobile's networks.
  • You'll probably be able to use your Google Voice number for your account.
