Rumor: Given everything that has been revealed and rumors about its upcoming phones, Google may not have anything else to reveal at its upcoming Pixel event. The latest rumor has it that the company is in the process of releasing devices along with a "Pixel Pass" subscription, which is a combination of hardware and software benefits for Pixel phone owners. For a monthly fee, subscribers will be able to upgrade their phones to access Google One, YouTube Premium, Play Pass, and Google Fi. The Pixel Pass, which also extends the device's long-term warranty, was initially available only to US customers.
"Pixel Pass" may soon be added to the impressive number of subscriptions, and this time all Google services are made available to future Pixel 6 owners. It looks like Google has put a lot of effort into its next flagship phone, including a custom SoC, a completely redesigned Android experience, and a major redesign of the phone that will surely differentiate itself from the competition.
While the Pixel experience is great in some areas and murky in others, Google is looking to allay concerns by using a "Pixel Pass" to help users lock down multiple device services. Keep your relevant software in one package depending on your platform.
According to M Brandon Lee of This is Tech Today, Google's subscription is a mix of Apple-like iPhone upgrades to keep them in the latest Pixel while giving them core services like Google One, Access Play, and premium YouTube.

Google Fi subscribers will also be covered through the network, despite rumors that an unlocked carrier via the Google Store is also an option. In addition, the extended warranty of the device that comes with the Pixel Pass is likely to bring relief to its owners, if this time the devices are surprised by the build quality.
M.Bandon Lee's tweets also show color options. And suggestions for the regular Pixel 6 and Pro. The previous device appears to be a "premium" device priced at $849, while Google's first "professional" phone is expected to be priced at four digits and cost $1,099.
