Before traveling abroad, Project Fi lets you know if there’s coverage

Google’s Project Fi doesn’t want you to enter another country unsure if you’ll have access to high-speed data. The company just announced that its ever-improving wireless service will sync with Gmail to let customers know whether or not coverage is available where they’re going.

As long as your international flight is booked and the email goes to Gmail, Project Fi can run a quick check. The app for Google’s wireless service will send you a notification with coverage options and costs. Assuming it’s one of the 170 countries and territories where Google has partnerships made, you’ll be able to enjoy high-speed data as you do in the United States.

Texts and data behave the same internationally as they do domestically, but calls are $0.20 per minute.

If you’ve been skeptical to try Project Fi in recent years, now might be the time to give it a shot. The wireless service gained Bill Protection last month, a feature that basically enables unlimited data without forcing your bill to skyrocket.

Below is a list of the new countries where Project Fi operates flawlessly:
