For the most part, smartphone makers usually offer their customers official cases to use with their smartphones. Google had done something similar with their Nexus and Pixel handsets through the “My Case” program that lets users create custom smartphone cases for their devices.

Unfortunately, it seems that this program is no more. According to 9to5Google, they discovered that when Google launched their new Pixel 3a and 3a XL smartphones, the company had also axed their custom cases as well. Google is still offering official cases for their smartphones, but if you wanted a custom case, then you’ll need to start looking elsewhere.

For those who are hearing about this for the first time, the “My Case” program was where customers could create their own custom cases for their Google smartphones. All they needed to do was upload a photo to Google, align it with the template, purchase it, and it would be sent to them.

It was a fun way to create a truly customized and unique case for a smartphone and it is a bit of a pity that it is no longer being offered. Google has yet to officially comment on why that is, but if we had to venture a guess, maybe it wasn’t used by enough customers to warrant keeping it around.
