There’s a lot to love about Pixel phones. Maybe it’s the software, the cameras, or the unique design and feel, but there’s something about pixels that just draws people in. Google may not sell as many phones as Samsung or Apple, but they are among the best smartphones for your money. can be bought and they attract very loyal users. That’s why Google created the Pixel Superfans program — a club that the most loyal Pixelheads can join to get a bonus, plus invites to events and meetups, and referral codes to earn an extra dollar or two. The caveat is that the program was only available in the US for the longest time. That changed over the weekend when the Pixel Superfans program quietly expanded to the UK – only for Google to shut it down again.
Google has quietly put together a form for UK users to apply to join the Pixel Superfans program. It is a separate form from the one used by US users and is hosted on the UK version of the Google Store. Instead, the registration form for the US version is on its own website. This exclusive club accepts applications from users from all four countries of the United Kingdom – England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It has the same restrictions as the US version of the program: no members of the press, government officials, or Google/Alphabet employees are allowed.
Google hasn’t actually announced this anywhere, so it seems to be spreading by word of mouth. Unfortunately, you are already out of luck if you want to try to join the program today. Google closed applications this morning, saying “The Pixel Superfans UK form is currently not accepting responses. It will reopen in the near future. Thank you for your understanding.” It’s likely that when people got wind of the new program over the weekend, Google will have too many apps to sort through and will want some time to get up to speed.
Although the form was active, it seemed a bit broken – one sentence where it looked like Google wanted to link to an Q&A or FAQ page for more information about the program’s many benefits, but it didn’t. that page can’t be found anywhere either. Still, it seems great that Google is bringing this initiative outside of the US and rewarding its most loyal users worldwide.
The UK is only the second country to get this program, but Google may also be considering expanding it to other markets where its phones sell well, so if you’re the most ardent Pixel fan in your country, you might get your wish. granted sooner or later.
Unofficially, the US program has already accepted a few international Pixel Superfans, as Smart Droid reported in German last year, but the official program is certainly better than vague hopes of getting an invite despite regional differences.
Google Pixel 7 Pro
Google’s Pixel 7 Pro refines the Pixel experience after the initial stumbles of last year’s 6 Pro. It improves stability and raises the camera’s capabilities to a new level with image digestion and 4K60 fps video on all cameras. 30W fast charging and addictive Pixel features like automatic call screening and Pixel Recorder make the Pixel 7 Pro a compelling phone even as an iterative upgrade.
Google Pixel 7
Google didn’t reinvent the wheel with the Pixel 7, but it didn’t need to. With improved cameras, the next-gen Tensor G2 chipset, and Google’s amazing feature-packed software, the Pixel 7 earns its price tag again this year.
