Google Stadia games list and how to get Stadia Pro for free

Your definitive guide to Google's games streaming service

Google Stadia is a streaming service that allows you to play console and PC games on a variety of different devices without the need to own the actual hardware. Other than that, it acts like any other console, granting you the ability to purchase games that you can play; albeit immediately, without the need to download the game or any updates.

There’s a Base tier, which is free, and Pro, which comes at a monthly cost and provides you with games to play at no additional cost, the ability to play in 4K and 5.1 surround sound, and regular offers on game purchases. Either way, you can play Stadia on any laptop and TV, though the latter will require you to purchase a Chromecast Ultra. It’s also compatible with select phones and tablets. You’ll also need a compatible controller, though Google has released an official controller if you haven’t got one lying around.

In this guide, we’re going to detail everything you need to know about Stadia, including a full list of Stadia games, which controllers, phones, and tablets are supported, and more.

Google Stadia Pro is currently free for two months and is slowly rolling out across 14 different countries over the next 48 hours (at the time of press). We’ll let you know how you can participate in this guide so you can make the most of it. Simply click or tap on the relevant link below to fire yourself to that section of the guide.

How do I get Google Stadia Pro for free?

Google announced on April 8 that it will provide two months of free Stadia Pro for all 14 countries that the service is currently available in, in response to the Covid-19 crisis. The service will roll out within the next 48 hours and you can grab it right now on the official site.

Here’s how to get your two months of Stadia Pro for free in steps:

  • Visit the official site
  • Tap ‘Sign up with your invitation code’
  • Sign into your Gmail account
  • Confirm your email (leave the field blank)
  • Tap ‘Yes, I accept the Stadua Terms of Service’ and hit ‘Next’
  • Select an avatar (and complain that you can’t use a custom avatar) and hit ‘Next’
  • Choose your Stadia name and hit ‘Next’
  • Select your privacy settings (you have to fill in every field) and hit ‘Next’
  • Choose whether or not to get email updates and hit ‘Next’
  • Hit ‘Start trial’ and start playing

Here are some important things to note:

  • You need to input your credit card details to get your two free months, and you’ll start paying automatically as soon as it’s up. To avoid this, make sure you unsubscribe before the two months are up, which you can do from the Stadia settings screen
  • You can still play in 4K, despite reports to the contrary. You’ll need to download the official Stadia mobile app and tweak your quality settings there
  • If you purchase a game during your two free months of Stadia Pro, you can still play it at no additional cost when your subscription ends. You will lose the ability to play in 4K with 5.1 surround sound though

What is Google Stadia?

Google Stadia is a video games streaming service that lets you play games whenever you’re connected to wi-fi without the need to purchase hardware. It provides 1080p gaming with stereo sound for free (though you’ll need to purchase the actual games to play on it) and you can pay a monthly subscription free to get Stadia Pro, which provides support for 4K resolution and 5.1 surround sound. Both tiers feature gameplay at 60fps.

How much does Google Stadia cost?

If you own a compatible device, you can get Google Stadia completely for free; though you will have to purchase any games that you want to play. If not, you’ll need a Chromecast Ultra to play on a TV and a compatible controller. Google has put together a package that puts together everything you need to get started in its Stadia Premiere Edition, which includes a Chromecast Ultra, official controller, and three months of Stadia Pro. That costs $129.99 (£119).

What’s Google Stadia Pro and how much does it cost?

Google Stadia Pro is the premium membership, which provides you with 4K gaming, 5.1 surround sound support, games at no additional cost, and exclusive offers. It costs $9.99 (£8.99) per month.

Which devices can I play Google Stadia on?

You can play Google Stadia on any TV with a Chromecast Ultra and any laptop (Windows or Mac). It’s also available on the following compatible phones and tablets:

  • Pixel 2, 2XL, 3, 3XL, 3a, 3a XL, 4, 4XL

That depends on how you’re playing Google Stadia. If you’re using a Chromecast Ultra connected to a TV, you need the official Stadia controller. No other controllers are compatible in that instance.
