The information on the widget and the Google Fi app is updated in close to real-time. Real-time data is only available for your own talk & text device with Android 7.0 (Nougat) and the most recent version of the Google Fi app. It takes about a day for your data usage to show up in the Google Fi website. International data charges may be further delayed.
Important: Your current data usage is a live estimate, and might be adjusted throughout your billing cycle. Your bill reflects the total amount of data you used each month.Turn off data automatically when you hit a limit
