Google announced their cloud gaming platform Stadia last year, however, the platform was only available in a few countries to try. The main reason behind it was that the platform still had a lot of issues and bugs and Google has been trying to take the user feedback and bug reports to improve the service ever since. The company has now made the announcement about launching Google Stadia in 8 more countries, which are Austria, Czech Republic Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, and Switzerland.
Initially, Stadia was only available in 14 countries and now the number of countries has reached 22. Google has confirmed that the services will be rolled out in the next 24 hours and after it is available, users will be able to sign up with the Gmail account and simply use it to play on their computers, tablets, and smartphones for free. If you are a new user, you will get a month of free subscription for Stadia Pro, after which the service costs only $9.99 per month.
The games claimed by the user during the free trial remain theirs as long as they renew their subscription. Google will also be adding new free games every month, therefore, there is a lot to play with for free users as well. However, to purchase new and exclusive games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or Cyberpunk 2077, you will need to subscribe to the service. It will be interesting to see if Google uses the same platform or makes a bit of change as per the different countries.
