About the Product
Crafted by Google to seamlessly work with the Pixelbook, it'll flow over the touch screen for comfort and ease. It's the only pen that works with Google Assistant to get you answers quickly and comes with a single AAAA battery which you can replace when it's spent.
Apple Pencil sets the standard for how drawing, note‑taking, and marking up documents should feel — intuitive, precise, and magical.

What customers say about "Features"
Google Pixelbook Pen Stylus Pen with Google Assistant
  • Combined with a program such as Digital Painter, and folding the keyboard back, it turns your Pixelbook into a good art tablet.
  • The assistant button is handy. Highly recommend.
  • Well built and easy to use. Amazing pen.
  • It has no replacement tips.
  • No way to turn it "off" when in your laptop bag.
Apple Pencil Stylus Pen
  • Using it with the 2018 iPad 9.7 inch, it does work beautifully.
  • Great addition to the iPad for fine precision artwork and illustration.
  • Pretty low battery life and fiddly to charge.
  • This works well on the new iPad Air. Perfect for me!
  • Not the most comfortable pen to write with as it's quite slippery.
