Google’s Stadia cloud gaming platform recently officially launched a 30-minute free trial function in order to attract users. This feature allows users without a paid subscription to Stadia Pro to play for 30 minutes for free and experience various cloud games. When the free use starts, the sidebar of the platform will display a countdown. It is important to note that the calculation starts after clicking the trial button for these 30 minutes, regardless of whether the game starts or not. Thus, players need to play the game as soon as possible to avoid losing the trial qualification in the future.
If you want to experience Stadia cloud games for free, users need to first register a Google account and log in. Before the first game, there will be safety and health tips on the platform, and players need to agree to continue.
At present, the Stadia platform provides two modes: one is to purchase a certain game separately, and the other is to subscribe to Stadia Pro members. You can play a variety of games for $9.99 a month, and it supports 4K resolution, HDR, and 5.1 channels. However, “Assassin’s Creed” and other series of games, require certain payments even after subscribing. Nevertheless, the games give discounts for subscribers.
