Pixel users are reportedly receiving money from Google, and it’s not a joke. Some lucky Pixel users have reported unexpected payments ranging from a few dollars to over $1,000 in the r/GooglePixel subreddit. The notifications claim that the payments are rewards for “dogfooding” the Google Pay Remittance experience, which involves testing new features or services from the company.
Tech journalist Mishaal Rahman was one of the fortunate recipients who tweeted, “Uhhh, Google Pay seems to just be randomly giving users free money right now. I just opened Google Pay and saw that I have $46 in ‘rewards’ that I got ‘for dogfooding the Google Pay Remittance experience.’” This unexpected windfall has left users wondering how much Google paid out and how many were selected at random.
Although it may seem too good to be true, Google appears to have made no effort to retrieve the accidental payments. In an email to recipients, Google apologized for the unintended credit but stated, “If we were not able to reverse the credit, the money is yours to keep. No further action is necessary.” It’s uncertain how long the payments will continue or how many users will receive them, but for now, some Pixel owners are enjoying an unexpected financial boost.
The news has caught the attention of many people, and Pixel Users Receiving Money is a hot topic on social media. It is indeed a rare occurrence for a tech giant to hand out free money, and many are curious about the motives behind it. However, for now, it seems that Google is simply rewarding its loyal customers who have helped to test its latest products and services. If you’re a Pixel user, it might be worth checking your Google Pay account to see if you’re one of the lucky recipients.
