"I spoke with Luis Enrique and told him that my decision has been made", Pique told the media.
Pique has accumulated 102 caps for his national team, a record that coincides with the most successful period in Roja history.
Pique had declared his intention to quit global football after the 2018 World Cup following a qualifier against Albania in October 2016, when he said he was exhausted of criticism and wanted "to be left in peace".
However, the former Manchester United defender insisted that he felt "fortunate for being a part of the national team during such a lovely and successful time" and said "the decision had already been made a long time ago and it was well thought out".
"It was a handsome time with the national team in which I had the chance to win the World Cup and the European Championship".
Pique played 102 times for Spain and represented his country at two European Championships and three World Cups, helping his country win their only world crown in 2010 and triumphing at Euro 2012 two years later.
Pique made the announcement ahead of Sunday's Spanish Super Cup match against Sevilla and said that he wants to focus his remaining years playing football with Barcelona.
Pique will no longer be involved with Spain following the summer's World Cup, despite ex-Barcelona boss Luis Enrique taking charge.
