Google announces three-month Stadia Pro subscription for new Chromcast buyer

Google is slowly but steadily opening its Stadia cloud gaming service to more interested customers, and this month it will launch a new promotion offering a three-month Stadia Pro subscription to new buyers of Chromecast Ultra devices,media reported. Google confirmed to The Verge that this was the first time the platform had been promoted to Stadia, which works in a similar way to the platform’s buddy pass system.

目前还不清楚是否仅限于某个国家,但目前全球有14个国家和地区都已经可以使用Stadia。

It’s important to be clear that the Stadia Pro is currently the only available version of Google’s cloud service; while there will be a free standard, Stadia, that doesn’t support 4K streaming in the future, it’s not yet available. For now, the only way to run Stadia on Chrome or on a supported Android device is to use a Chromecast Ultra that connects to your TV.

Now, the Stadia Pro costs $10 a month. Until this promotion, the only way to access the service is through a friend card from an existing user or to purchase a $129 Premiere version. The kit includes a 3-month pass for the Stadia Pro, Google’s custom Stadia handle and Chromecast Ultra.
