.... When you receive your brand spanking new Pixel and log in with your Google account, the Photos promotion should automatically start.

    That's just how it happens from my experience with my Pixel XL. Also if you go into the Google Photos app, select Settings, then Back up & sync there is a note on that screen saying, "Full-resolution photos & videos uploaded from your Pixel device will get unlimited free storage" and there are no options to pick a lower resolution upload.
