Google is rolling out its new smartphones, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, along with Pixel Pass, a new subscription service, The Verge reported.

Pixel Pass includes access to premium versions of YouTube and YouTube Music, as well as Google Play Pass and 200GB of Google One cloud storage, according to the report. The service is available to U.S. customers and will also allow them to pay for their Pixel phones in monthly installments. An extra year of warranty coverage above the standard one-year manufacturer warranty is also included.

Pixel Pass for the Pixel 6 starts at $45 per month, and it’s $55 per month for the Pixel 6 Pro, the report stated. Subscribers can get an upgrade after two years, although that could change the price.

If they cancel before two years, they must pay off the remainder of their phone early at its regular price, according to the report. They’ll also lose their bundled service access.

Subscribers can begin using the Google services included in Pixel Pass once their Pixel phone ships. The new phones will be available at U.S. wireless carriers Oct. 28.

Earlier this month, Google partnered with fast food giant Wendy’s in order to improve digital offerings at the quick-service restaurant (QSR).

The partnership will allow for a suite of data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and more.

“We believe Google Cloud’s AI/ML and data analytics solutions will enable Wendy’s to innovate ways to create fast, frictionless and fun interactions that redefine the way customers visit and enjoy our restaurants,” Wendy’s Chief Information Officer Kevin Vasconi said at the time.

Google Cloud President of Sales Robert Enslin added: “By bringing together Wendy’s commitment to innovation with the best of Google technology, we can help build the quick-service restaurant of tomorrow that redefines speed, convenience and quality.”
