Google Stadia is finally welcoming home sharing

Celebrating the first anniversary of the launch of the Stadia cloud gaming service, Google has also delivered on an important promise to bring a “home-sharing” experience to some players. Earlier today, Android Police was the first to report the incident. Google then confirmed in a conversation with 9to5Google that the feature will be available from now on. But in a Reddit post, it revealed that an official push could take about a week.

The Stadia Home Sharing feature provides settings that meet expectations, and this week’s online support page shows how FamilySharing works.

It is reported that account holders can share their game library with up to 6 people. In addition to those that you buy out, there are games for which Stadia Pro subscriptions are redeemed.

In other words, as long as one person subscribes to Stadia Pro, others can share the same joy without having to pay repeatedly for access to the resources.

Of course, if you stop renewing Stadia Pro after sharing, other FamilySharing members will also lose access to the game.

In addition, only one person is allowed to experience the same Stadia cloud game (other works are unrestricted) for the same time period. So when you enable FamilySharing, also negotiate not to conflict in this regard.

Finally, Google allows FamilySharing members to share their entire or part of the game library, but resources such as in-game currency are temporarily unavailable.
