This partnership means that you can take your Pixel and Pixel XL into the store and have the repair done on the spot.
You don’t have to worry about getting crummy after-market parts, either. Google is supply uBreakiFix with original parts, so the new screen replacement shouldn’t look off at all. For the Pixel and Pixel XL, you’re looking at a screen replacement price of $130 and $150, respectively. That’s around the same price Apple charges for screen repairs at its own stores.
