As of now, we can say that Google Stadia had a rough launch, with plenty of missing features and unfulfilled promises. However, it appears at least some of the features Google talked about at launch may soon make their way to Stadia users.
The latest update to the Stadia app hints that some of those features might be coming soon, including the highly anticipated free tier, YouTube streaming, family game sharing, and more. 9to5Google first spotted the potential code into the Stadia app update which hits us for the above-mentioned features on Stadia.
Out of many things, one of the biggest things is an indication that Google is gearing up to launch its free Stadia Base tier of service soon. 9to5Google’s report found strings in the app that allow for registration without a paid Stadia code, along with a free one-month trial for Stadia Pro memberships which will include different free games along with many other features.
In addition to this, the publication also found that Google will restrict the number of people who can sign up and play Stadia at one time, with warnings that “Sorry, Stadia is full in your area,” and “In order to provide the best game quality for everyone, we limit the number of accounts on Stadia. We’ve hit that limit, but we’re working hard to build additional room in the Stadia cloud so more people can enjoy the same high-quality game performance. Please check back in the future for new player availability.”
Apart from this, the Stadia app update found with the code that will add the ability to ive-stream games directly from Stadia to YouTube, something Google has been showcasing as a major feature for Stadia since it was first announced. New strings for buttons and menus related to starting, managing, and stopping YouTube live streams were spotted in the latest app, indicating that the feature could be rolling out soon.
Well, the sad part of all of these is these features are just a hint now. There is no indication of when they’ll be available for customers to try for themselves. Still, it’s an encouraging sign that Google is working hard to bring what it had promised to the users on its launch.
