Xiaomi 13 series, the flagship lineup released on February 26 ahead of MWC 2023, comes bundled with special offers and features. Along with a six-month free subscription to YouTube Premium, the Xiaomi 13 series smartphones also get the ‘Magic Eraser’ feature that had been limited to only Google Pixel devices so far. Xiaomi announced a partnership with Google at the MWC 2023 event, currently ongoing in Barcelona, Spain. This teaming up essentially marked the integration of popular Google products with the Xiaomi 13 series.
YouTube Premium, which recently exceeded 80 million paid subscribers, lets users stream unlimited content, ad-free. On the other hand, the Magic Eraser feature lets users erase unwanted objects from their photos. There however, is an unmissable catch in this too good-to-be-true offers attached to the Xiaomi 13 devices, which include the vanilla Xiaomi 13, the Xiaomi 13 Pro and the Xiaomi 13 Lite.
Just like the YouTube Premium’s free subscription, the Magic Eraser feature will also be available for free use on the Xiaomi 13 devices only for six months.
With this integration, Google aims to reach out to more people to try its Google One subscription plan for free. It expands the storages for Google Drive, Photos, as well as Gmail. In India, the plan starts at Rs. 130 a month.
Both, Android as well as iOS users can purchase Google One and use the Magic Eraser feature.
