NS google pixel 6 And the Pixel 6 Pro is being unveiled in its entirety on October 19th, but along with these Google may also be planning to launch a new service called Pixel Pass.
Looks like it’s a Google takeover Apple One, essentially bundling multiple services together under one monthly subscription, and that hasn’t been confirmed yet, but enough details have leaked out that we have a good idea of what the Pixel Pass can offer.
We’ll then walk you through exactly what it supposedly gets you, and how you would go about signing up for it.
What do you get with Pixel Pass?
based on the rutGoogle Pixel Pass has both hardware and software components. On the hardware front, you’ll get a Pixel phone, and will be eligible for “regular upgrades.”
In terms of software, you will be subscribed to google play pass (Google’s service that gives you access to various premium apps and games), YouTube Premium, Google One (which gives you cloud storage), and Google Fi (which is a US mobile network operated by Google).
Plus, you’ll also get an extended warranty for your Google Pixel phone. This will be either through Google’s preferred care service or its device protection service – two similar services that provide cover against accidental damage and mechanical malfunction.
How do you get Pixel Pass?
Based on what we’ve seen so far, it looks like the Pixel Pass will only be available in the US (at least initially), so you probably won’t be able to get it if you don’t live in the US. Google Fi itself isn’t available outside the US either, so if Google makes the Pixel Pass available elsewhere, the specifics of what you get with it may vary.
If you live in the US, you’ll also need a Pixel phone – although one is provided as part of the Pixel Pass anyway. It looks like you’ll be able to buy the Pixel Pass online through the Google Store or via Google Fi (whether you’re a new or existing customer).
Leaked documents suggest that buyers will be given the option to trade in their older phones, and will need to apply for financing if they buy the Pixel Pass through the Google Store.
When will Pixel Pass launch?
We’re not sure when the Pixel Pass will arrive (if it does, as it’s just a rumor for now), but there will be a clear announcement date for October 19th with the Pixel 6 range, with the service launching probably at the same time those phones go up for pre-orders (rumored also on October 19th) so you can get a Pixel 6 on the Pixel Pass.
How much does Pixel Pass cost?
This is a big question that we still have about the Pixel Pass, as it is not stated in the leak. However, it’s likely to be offered with several different Pixel handsets, so if the phone’s price is bundled in a subscription, it could vary depending on the model you choose.
How does the Pixel Pass compare to the Apple One?
Apple One has three tiers, with the Basic tier giving you access Apple Musichandjob apple tv plushandjob apple arcade, and giving you 50GB of iCloud storage. The next tier up is designed for sharing with up to five family members, and gives you the same but with 200GB of iCloud storage.
Then there’s a ‘Premier’ option that you can also share and gives you all that but with 2TB of cloud storage, Apple News Plus and apple fitness plus.
There is no indication that the Pixel Pass will have multiple tiers like this. While we can’t be sure, it seems to be an all or nothing situation. We also don’t know how much cloud storage is included in the Pixel Pass, so it’s hard to compare them directly.
But based on leaks, the Pixel Pass will have the same selection of services outside the Premiere tier as the Apple One, as no fitness or news aspect is listed for the Pixel Pass.
However, the Apple One doesn’t include the cellular plan, handset upgrade, or extended warranty you reportedly get with the Pixel Pass, so Google’s offering could be more comprehensive overall — although it’s likely to be priced accordingly. Is.
And Apple has an iPhone Upgrade Program, which offers handset upgrades, but is sold as a separate service. So while the Pixel Pass may have more to it, Apple’s subscriptions arguably give you more ability to tailor them to your needs by choosing the ones you want.
