Google will repair your Pixel 4 XL phone for free for up to a year after the expiration of your warranty, provided you live in the United States, Singapore, Canada, Japan and Taiwan. The tech giant has launched an extended repair program for the larger version of its 2019 flagship device, which features motion gesture support and an integrated radar. Google stopped selling the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL from its own store in August 2020, but they are still available from sales partners until the end of supply. While this program can get free repairs if you are in one of the eligible regions, it only covers specific energy-related issues.
In particular, problems should be related to not being able to turn on your phone and having problems charging with an adapter or a wireless charger. If your phone continues to restart or shut down without you doing so or if your battery drains significantly faster than before, you can also get a free repair in the program. In Canada, Japan and Taiwan, you can also get a free replacement. That said, you cannot get a free repair or replacement if you purchased your device from Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy Spain or the United Kingdom, even if you are in one of the eligible locations.
Be sure to check out Google FAQ page for more information on how you can benefit from the program in your situation. In the US, you’ll need to bring your device to a uBreakiFix location or access Google repair center site to begin the process.
