Additionally, if you cancel during the 24-month cycle, you will be required to pay the remaining value of your Pixel device at a non-discounted price, and your access to bundled services will terminate.

Should You Subscribe to Pixel Pass?

This isn’t a yes/no question. If you find it more convenient to have all of your favorite Google services and your actual device tied to the same monthly bill, then by all means.
