The Google Pixel 7 series comes with one notable perk in the form of free access to the VPN by Google One service. This VPN is usually reserved for Google One subscribers on the 2TB plan or higher.

The perk isn’t actually available to Pixel 7 owners just yet, but 9to5Google spotted an official support document that confirms a launch window. More specifically, the document points to Pixel 7 availability “as of December 2022.”

Unfortunately, the VPN by Google One service isn’t available in India and Singapore, and the document indeed notes that Pixel 7 series owners in these markets aren’t eligible for the service.

We’re not quite sure why the VPN service wasn’t available to Pixel 7 owners from the get-go, especially when it’s already available to eligible Google One subscribers. Nevertheless, we at least have a rough release window now.

It depends on what the vpn goals are, is it to help people avoid censorship or about data harvesting or is it just following the trend of every man and his dog offering a vpn service. If they make traffic blend in with Google Search/GoogleDns and Gmail or even the Play Store thus making it harder to block vpn traffic this could be a good thing for users in censorship heavy countries. It's really up to Google to decide what the vpn is good for and how it will be used.
