Google offers potential Stadia Pro users a 30-minute trial without payment information or reports 9to5Google. Until now if you wanted test cloud game service for a month, you will still need to hand in your payment information before you start. As part of Google’s plan to remove any reasons you would use for not trying the platform, it is now offering these non-binding mini-trials. Naturally, after that half hour has passed, Google will want to see a promise of money before you can continue with the rest of your free month.
One year after launch and Stadia’s pitch remains as delicious and frustrating as it was when the serve was born. For one thing, users never need to upgrade their computer or replace their console since all games are hosted on Google’s servers. On the other hand, performance lives and dies on your internet connection and data limit, while the usefulness of the platform is limited to its stability, speed, and game library. Not to mention, Google’s propensity to kill slow-growing projects makes Stadia a risky investment for cash-strapped gamers looking for an alternative to the Sony / Microsoft tech arms race.
