Harvey victims can get their Google Pixel fixed for free

If your Pixel was damaged during the hurricane in August, you can get it repaired for free.

Google is partnering with uBreakiFix to repair all Pixel phones affected by Hurricane Harvey in Houston. The two companies are working together to fix phones that have cracked screens, water damage, and other issues preventing it from working.

It’s a generous move by Google considering the Pixel is missing any real protection from moisture. Among all the potential things that could happen to a Pixel during a hurricane, water damage is the most likely. Still, cracked screens are also eligible for free repairs. Google just wants to see its 2016 flagship working for everyone after a historic weather event.

Free repairs from uBreakiFix for the Google Pixel will be offered to device owners until September 30.
