Google One VPN starts rolling out for Pixel 7 and 7 Pro

During the launch keynote, Google touted two features as “coming soon.” One of those, the free “VPN by Google One” now appears to be rolling out early for Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. 

Effectively the same VPN service that comes with the 2TB tier of the Google One cloud storage plan,

we’re now seeing the option appearing earlier than the proposed December timeline on a Pixel 7 Pro retail unit.

It was expected to arrive as part of the December Pixel Feature Drop, but it is live on a number of our devices already. 

The Google One VPN is focused on masking your traffic and IP address, reducing online tracking, 

and providing protection on public Wi-Fi and other unsecured networks. 

It is only available with “eligible” Google Accounts, which does not include Workspace or selected supervised accounts.
