[Pixel 7] and 7 Pro get free Google One VPN in Dec


 Google launched the Pixel 7 series with two features listed as "coming soon". A free "VPN for Google One" is a mainstay of Pixel 7 and 7 Pro security and will be available in December. 

Pixel 7- and 7-Pro

According to Google One support documents, in December 2022, "Pixel 7 and Pixel 7* Pro users on these devices will be able to access Google One VPN for free using the Google One app without Google One documents."

The VPN will not be available for Pixel 7 devices sold in India or Singapore, but this article also states "Workspace and certain supervised accounts (including child accounts) are not eligible"
For owners of existing 2TB+ plans, Google says the free offering "doesn't affect the price or benefits of the Google One Premium plan." This is the easiest way to use it, but it would be even more convenient if the system overhead was less.

This Pixel 7 Perk appears to be the same VPN approach currently available to existing subscribers in the Google One app, so it's still odd that it only arrived in December. I hope there will be a deeper integration of what is covered.The Google operator only shows the status bar icon without separate notification.

December will be a big month for the Pixel with the next feature drop alongside Android 13 QPR1. The Pixel 7 inherits features from QPR1 (renamed "Screen Saver Mode"), it’s still Android 13 (no animated Quick Settings tiles, old media player scrubber, etc).Meanwhile, Clear Calling, another "coming soon" feature that Google touted when it launched, aims to improve voice through machine learning.
