‘Made for Google’ third-party accessory certification program

With the launch of the Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL and plethora of other products on the horizon, Google will introduce a new ‘Made for Google’ certification program for third-party accessory makers, according to 9to5Google. Citing three different sources, the website says it doesn’t have too many details about the upcoming program other than the name. The assumption, however, is that the initiative will work a lot like Apple’s MFi certification program. That is, Google will provide select accessory manufacturers documentation, hardware samples and technical support, as well as the opportunity for those manufacturers to use a ‘Made for Google’ stamp on their products. The initiative will likely lead to a greater variety of third-party accessories like cases and battery packs making it out to the marketplace.
