Does Google Pixel 6 Support Wireless Charging?

The answer is a resounding yes. The Google Pixel 6 supports the Qi wireless charging standard, allowing you to wirelessly charge the device with any Qi-compatible charger. When used with Qi wireless chargers with the Extended Power Profile (EPP), the Pixel 6 can refuel wirelessly at a rate of up to 12W.

Moreover, the Pixel 6 is also compatible with fast wireless charging up to 21W with Google's Pixel Stand (2nd Gen). This means that Google Pixel 6 users can not only enjoy the convenience of wireless charging but also benefit from speedy recharges that are comparable to wired charging speeds.

Wireless Charging Setup for Google Pixel 6

If you're eager to take advantage of the Google Pixel 6's wireless charging capability, the setup process is simple and straightforward. Here's how to get started:

Check Compatibility and Choose a Charger

First and foremost, it's crucial to select a compatible wireless charger. As discussed above, the Pixel 6 supports the Qi wireless charging standard, which is the most widely used wireless charging standard. This compatibility opens a wide array of Qi-certified charging pads and stands to choose from.

To take advantage of its fast wireless charging capability, consider acquiring the Google Pixel Stand (2nd Gen), which is tailor-made for Pixel phones and offers the fastest wireless charging at 21W for your Pixel 6. Alternatively, opting for Qi-certified chargers that come with an EPP rating can provide you with a charging speed of up to 12W.

Plug in and Position the Charger

Once you have your compatible charger, the next step is straightforward. Plug the charger into a power source using the included cable and adapter. It's essential to use an adapter that meets the charger's power requirements to ensure optimal charging speed and efficiency. Place the charger on a stable and flat surface to avoid any disruptions during the charging process.

Confirm Charging and Optimize Placement

With the charger connected and positioned, place your Google Pixel 6 on the charging pad or stand. You should see a charging symbol appear on your phone's screen, indicating that wireless charging has commenced. If you don't see the charging indicator, adjust the phone's placement on the charger to ensure proper alignment with the charging coils. For the best results, remove any thick phone cases or metal objects that might interfere with the charging process.
