Google’s latest smartphones, the Pixel and Pixel XL, are offered by Verizon, the only US carrier to make these phones available to its customers. Unlocked versions of the two phones are available at the Google Store and multiple third-party retailers as well, including Best Buy, and through Google’s Project Fi.
When purchasing a phone through a carrier, users also expect the mobile carrier to install multiple apps that take up space and ultimately can affect the phone’s performance. The purpose behind these pre-installed apps is to improve user experience, but not all people actually need or use them.

Apparently, the Pixel smartphones listed on Verizon’s website don’t come with many pre-installed apps, as pointed by a user on Reddit. The mobile carrier claims on the Pixel listing on its website that the phones won’t come with any pre-installed apps from the carrier. However, three Verizon apps are mentioned under the preloaded Play Store apps tab.

Apparently, the phones will come pre-installed with My Verizon, Go90, and VZ Messages. In case you were wondering, Go90 is a Verizon-branded video streaming app that offers access to live on-demand video wrapped in a social experience.
