Aside from phones today Google also made the Pixel Pass service official. This was leaked a few days ago, and now it’s unveiled. It’s a subscription service that costs $45 per month for the Pixel 6 and $55 per month for the Pixel 6 Pro.
With both plans, you’re getting the respective phone as well as YouTube Premium with ad-free watching and background play, YouTube Music Premium with ad-free listening, 200GB of Google One cloud storage, Google Play Pass with access to hundreds of games and apps fully free of any ads and in-app purchases, and Preferred Care coverage “to cover life’s little accidents with hassle-free device repairs”.
You can subscribe to Pixel Pass through the Google Store, or with a phone plan on Google Fi. When you go the former route, you save up to $294 over two years and get an unlocked Pixel which you can use with all major carriers. If you go the Fi route, then you save an extra $5 off your monthly plan, totaling up to $414 savings over two years compared to buying the phone and all of the aforementioned services separately.
You can cancel Pixel Pass anytime, but you won’t be able to return your Pixel phone – you’ll have to pay off the remaining value at its regular price.
