The Project Fi mobile service by Google will allegedly be augmented this week by a major extension of compatible handsets.

The range of “Fi-ready” compatible handsets is quite short: Google is presently selling the Pixel 3 XL, 3, 2 XL, LG V35, LG G7, Moto X4, and Moto G6 (Android One edition) directly via its Project Fi site.

The Internet behemoth is operating to publicly experiment on “Project Stream” with a restricted number of members by allowing them play “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” in its Chrome browser for free. “The thought of streaming such graphically-heavy content that needs near-instantaneous interaction between the graphics on the screen and the game controller poses numerous challenges.
