Pixel Pass is reportedly no more. The parent company, Google is now discontinuing the subscription program that reportedly offered a Pixel phone as well as access to a host of Google services for one single monthly charge. The company in question stopped offering Pixel Pass for new purchases and renewals officially as of Tuesday.

The news in question comes just a couple of months before the subscription runs through for its earliest customers as well as in the lead-up to the October Made by Google event by the company, where the tech giant as you should know is very much expected to unveil the Pixel 8 and the Pixel 8 Pro devices.

Google Pixel Pass Subscription Perks and Benefits

Google initially launched its Pixel Pass subscription, which in question spread out the cost of the phone and services over the span of two years, back in 2021. The subscription in question helped provide either the Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro and then paired with services such as Google Play Pass, YouTube Premium as well as YouTube Music Premium, among many other perks. CNET however found out at the time that the packages in question would reportedly save $76 (Pixel 6) and $186 (Pixel 6 Pro) on the other hand over the two-year period, but if only people were making use of all the services that came as part of the subscription.

Pixel Pass Is No Longer Offered For New Pixel Purchases or Even Their Renewal

According to the help site of Google, Pixel Pass is no longer offered for new Pixel purchases or even their renewal. Existing subscribers can however continue with their subscription for the remainder of the two years from the date that they initially signed up. And after that, people can still upgrade their Pixel device, but however, they will not be able to renew their Pixel Pass subscription.

Why Google Is Ending Pixel Pass

Google didn’t really say specifically on the reason why it’s ending Pixel Pass, but it however said that it will “evaluate offers based on customer feedback and provide different ways for them to access the best of Google.”

The company on the other hand also isn’t issuing refunds, just because it is “committed to fulfilling our promise for the full 2-year term on the Pixel Pass subscription,” as per the help site. Google also stated that it will issue a $100 loyalty reward credit to all active subscribers.
