Google will fix your Pixel 4 XL phone for free for up to one year after the warranty expires, provided you live in the US, Singapore, Canada, Japan and Taiwan. The technology giant has launched an extended repair program for the larger version of the flagship in 2019, which supports motion motions and built-in radar. Google stopped selling Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL from its own store in August 2020, but they are still available from retail partners for supplies. Although this program can provide you with free repairs if you are in one of the eligible regions, it only covers specific power related issues.
In particular, the problems must be related to not being able to turn on the phone and having problems charging with an adapter or a wireless charger. If the phone continues to start up or shut down without you doing so, or if the battery drains significantly faster than before, you can also get free repair under the application. In Canada, Japan and Taiwan you can even get a free replacement. That said, you may not receive a free repair or replacement if you purchased your device from Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, or the United Kingdom, even if you are in one of the eligible locations.
Be sure to check the Google FAQ page for more information on how to take advantage of the program where you are. In the US, you need to take your device to a uBreakiFix site or go to the Google Repair Center website to start the process.
