The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are two of the most exciting smartphone releases from Google, even if they’re already succeeded by the Pixel 7 series! Many of you are still proudly rocking one, but now it’s time to improve the experience with some of the best Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro accessories.

There are plenty of accessories you can get for the last-generation Pixels. Some essentials, like a charger (since the phone doesn’t come with one in the box, except in France), and others, like smartwatches, are great phone companions to have.

The best Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro accessories

Editor’s note: We’ll be sure to update this list of Pixel 6 and 6 Pro accessories as new options continue to launch.

Google 30W USB-C charger

To take advantage of the Pixel 6 series’ fast charging capabilities, the official 30W USB-C charger from Google is the best way to go. The charger matches the required standard (USB PD 3.0 PPS) for its latest flagships, and you should be able to get a 50% charge in around 30 minutes.

It’s not that expensive either, priced at about the same price as, if not cheaper, what you’d spend on a third-party charger.

Google Pixel Buds A-series

Here's a close up of the Google Pixel Buds A-Series on driftwood with a smartphone.

Google’s Pixel Buds A-series true wireless earphones are among the best Pixel 6 accessories you can get. The A-series keeps the best features of the more expensive Pixel Buds, particularly regarding sound quality, and its relatively affordable price tag is a huge positive.

There are a few compromises, though. You don’t get noise cancellation and can’t wirelessly charge them. However, the big selling point here is the seamless integration with Android and access to all its features with a Pixel phone.

If you’ve got more cash to spare and want an upgrade, you should look at the Google Pixel Buds Pro. It comes with a more powerful chipset and active noise-cancelling. We also have a complete list of the best true wireless earbuds, in case you need alternatives from other brands.

Official Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro cases

Google doesn’t have as robust a case collection as OEMs like Samsung, but you can get a dual-layer case for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The translucent case is available in various colors and lets you show off the phone’s design. A raised lip keeps the display and rear camera bar safe. You also get covered buttons and precise cutouts for everything else.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series

The rumored Google Pixel Watch will likely be the best smartwatch for Pixel devices. Until then, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro are the smartwatches to get. The Watch 5 is the cheaper of the two. We believe it also offers more value, as it comes with the most essential features at a much more accessible price.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro has a slightly larger body, thanks to the more substantial battery. It also gets a larger dial, a D-buckle strap, and overall better exercise features.

Of course, Samsung isn’t the only option. Any other Wear OS smartwatch will work, and these are our favorite Wear OS watches. We should especially highlight the Google Pixel Watch, which got very close to replacing the Galaxy Watch 5 series on this list of the best Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro accessories. The Pixel Watch looks better, and is a Google product, providing a smoother Wear OS experience. That said, we weren’t fans of its battery life. We wish the screen was larger, and it’s missing some important features. As we mentioned in our Pixel Watch review, it suffers from first-generation issues, which should be ironed out whenever a successor comes.

Google Pixel Stand (2nd Gen)

Google also released an updated Pixel Stand alongside the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The new wireless charger offers fast wireless charging — 21W with the Pixel 6 and 23W with the Pixel 6 Pro. The charging speed significantly jumps from the first-gen Pixel Stand that maxed out at 10W.

It has a new unibody design and a cooling fan to keep the phone from overheating. There are also a host of exclusive features you can take advantage of, with Pixel 6 and 6 Pro owners able to monitor Nest cameras, interact with Google Assistant visual spotlight, Photo Frame, Sunrise Alarm, and more.

As always, we have a complete list of the best wireless chargers, if you want other options.

Screen protectors

More often than not, the display makes or breaks your smartphone experience. The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro come with beautiful screens, and it would be horrible for them to get damaged or scratched in any way. A good screen protector can go a long way in ensuring that the display stays in pristine condition.

A tempered glass option is the way to go if you want to protect the screen from drops, while a TPU film is more than enough to keep scratches away. You can also get privacy screen guards to hide your display from prying eyes.

Anker 733 Power Bank (GaNPrime PowerCore 65W)

Anker 733 Power Bank

There are plenty of great portable battery packs, but it’s hard to beat this Anker 733 Power Bank. It’s expensive, but provides a great experience while keeping your devices juiced up. Its main lure is that it doubles as a battery pack and a fast charger.

When plugged in, it will charge three devices simultaneously, using its two USB-C ports and single USB-A port. It can juice up your devices at up to 65W when tethered to the wall. At the same time, it will power up its 10,000mAh integrated battery. You can simply unplug the brick and take it with you to continue charging your devices on the go.

Belkin Universal Car Vent Mount

A good car phone mount is an excellent accessory for your new Pixel handset if you don’t have one yet. We like the Belkin Universal Car Vent Mount for its discrete look, simplicity, good quality, and accessible pricing. It’s a no-hassle car phone mount that attaches to your vents and keeps your phone in place while driving.

If this car phone holder does not convince you, here are other great options we’ve looked at.

Razer Kishi V2 controller

You can’t go wrong with a suitable controller if you’re a gamer. Razer makes some of the best, and the Razer Kishi V2 offers a very convenient form factor. You can dock your phone into it and use it handheld, much like you would a Nintendo Switch.

The accessory connects over USB-C and is powered by your Android device. Aside from comfortable buttons and controls, you’ll get programmable buttons, dedicated screenshot/video controls, and a dedicated Razer Nexus app shortcut.

Joby GripTight One GorillaPod Stand

The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are stunning camera phones, so it makes sense for you to want to use them for all your photo and video adventures. One of the best accessories for smartphone photography we can recommend is a small, portable, and flexible tripod.

The Joby GripTight One GorillaPod Stand checks all the boxes, and it’s a reasonably affordable option that offers good quality and functionality. You can even use it as a selfie stick. Alternatively, it can be a great video tool, or a stand to use with your phone when taking selfies or group shots.
