Google Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL Accessories: Pixel Stand, Headphones, Chargers, Covers

Looking to buy the new Pixel smartphones? Here are all the official Google Pixel 3 accessories that we recommend you take a look at to accompany your device. As always, Google has spent good amount of time designing and coming up with new first-party accessories for its 2018 flagship phones. On top of the unique cases that the brand introduced last year, this time around, there is a new Pixel stand. Owing to how Pixel 3 now comes with a full glass back and supports wireless charging, the Pixel stand not only charges the device but also lets you control connected things such as home appliances and more through Assistan. For a full run-down of all accessories along with pricing — in US dollars — continue right ahead.

Speaking about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL itself, the smartphones come with upgraded Snapdragon 845 processor, better cameras on front and back, larger displays and an all-glass design. For Pixel 3 XL, there is an inclusion of a rather large notch cut-out on the front. Further, similar to last year, there is no headphone jack but Google has included USB Type-C Pixel buds within the box. If you have ordered the new Pixel 3, here are all the official Google accessories you can buy for it.

As these accessories are made by Google, they will work flawlessly with the Pixel 3 smartphone. Read the list given ahead.

Pixel Stand

Google Pixel Stand is designed specifically for Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. There is no separate variant for each device rather this singular design works perfectly for both. At first glance, it seems as a simple wireless charger with fast charging support but that’s not all to it. Google has managed to integrate Assistant functionality within the stand when your Pixel 3 is docked hence transforming the setup into a mini Google Home station. Further, the dock props up the phone at an ergonomic viewing angle and lets you view notifications and other updates seamlessly on your desk. The Pixel Stand retails for $79.

Pixel USB-C Earbuds

This accessory is packaged within the standard Google Pixel 3 box but if you need an extra pair of headphones, Google would be offering official ones for $30. Following the design of wireless Pixel Buds, these are quite ergonomic. However, we wish the brand included a black color option just as on the wireless pair.

Pixel Buds

Carrying over from last year are Google’s Pixel Buds which are perfect Bluetooth wireless earphones. The design, this time has been tweaked in terms of color options and materials. These aren’t true wireless earbuds as the pair is connected with a wire but no direct connection to the phone. Further, they have on-board Live Translation and other Assistant features as well. A pair of Pixel Buds cost $159 in US.

My Case

Taking a different outlook on standard cases, Google is providing My Case for Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. This is a medium-hard case which you can customize with a set of different things. Either choose from your own picture to be printed or from Google’s own ideas. To buy a My Case, you would need to spend $50 US dollars.

Pixel 3 Case

Again, similar to last year, Google is offering a fabric case named as Pixel 3 case. Available in 4 unique color options, these cases provide amazing textures while adding protection to the phone. A single Pixel 3 case would cost $40.

18W USB-C Charger

Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL both ship with a 18W fast charger within the box but if you want an extra one to leave at home, you can do so by buying this official unit. As PD support is crucial, with this charger you would have peace of mind that both cable and charger are PD compliant.

45W USB-C Charger

For an even faster charging experience, there is a 45W USB Type-C charger available that will power your device in considerably less time. However, this charger is a bit bulky and might not the suitable to fit in back pack to lug around.

USB-C to 3.5mm Headphone Jack

For users who want to connect their favorite pair of headphones, this USB Type-C to 3.5mm headphone jack dongle is available from Google Store. It works just as described but again, it would be quite prone to

Google takes a lot of pride in these first-party accessories, what do you think? Which one would you be getting for your Pixel 3? Reach us in the comments below!
