Google Stadia now has a free streaming tier

Back when Google first pitched Stadia, it was with a free tier for 1080p streaming and a pro tier for those who want up to 4K visuals. Since launch in November 2019, Stadia has only had the Pro subscription tier available but as of today, the free streaming tier is opening up to everyone. All you need is a Gmail address.

All you need to access Stadia is a supported device. That list includes the Chromecast Ultra, a PC with Chrome, or a supported smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S series, Razer Phone, ROG Phone or Pixel 2/3/4.

Anyone who signs up for Stadia will get two months of the Pro tier for free, which means you will also get access to a free selection of games. That includes the likes of Destiny 2: The Collection, Gylt, GRID and a few others.

You can choose to not auto-renew the Pro subscription once you are signed up. If you leave automatic renewal switched on, then Stadia Pro will cost $10 per month after your free trial period runs out.

KitGuru Says: It looks like the launch of GeForce Now has spurred Google into action with its long-awaited free tier. Will any of you be trying out Stadia now that it is open to everyone?
