Furthermore, if you continued to subscribe to Pixel Pass after two years, there was also a mechanism in which a new Pixel smartphone would be lent by Google.

However, in August 2023, Google announced the end of Pixel Pass, saying, ``Pixel Pass will no longer be provided after August 29, 2023.'' On the Q&A page regarding the termination of Pixel Pass published by Google, there is an item ``Why are you terminating Pixel Pass?'' 'We continue to listen to feedback from our users and offer diverse ways to access Google's best products.' The reason for the termination is not stated.

Users who have already subscribed to Pixel Pass can continue to use Pixel Pass for two years from the date of subscription. In addition, Pixel Pass subscribers will be given a ``$100 credit (approximately 14,600 yen) that can be used at the Google Store.''
