Google Makes Stadia Pro Free For Two Months

Several months ago Google launched Stadia to lackluster fanfare. In our experience, the underlying technology is promising, but the lack of unique features and must-play games really hurts the platform. Google is slowly updating Stadia, so that may be changing. If you're curious to try game streaming yourself, you can now sign up for a free two-month test run of Stadia Pro. 

Stadia Pro members get assess to nine games for free, including Grid, Destiny 2: The Collection, Thumper, Gylt, Serious Sam Collection, Spitlings, Stacks on Stacks (on Stacks), SteamWorld Dig 2, and SteamWorld Quest. Personally, I recommend checking out Thumper and the SteamWorld games if you never played them. Hopefully, this helps your quarantine run a little smoother.

This is the roll out of the free tier for Stadia that Google has promised since last year, and its nice to see that members will get a free two months of Stadia Pro, which normally costs $9.99 a month and includes a selection of free games as well as the highest quality streams. Thankfully, you get to keep any of the purchases you make during this free trial, and if you're already a paid Stadia Pro subscriber, you won’t be charged for the next two months.
