The selection of redeemable games varies — Google adds a few each month, and sometimes removes some. Here, for your convenience, we've compiled a handy list of all the games you can claim right now.

Stadia's Black Fridays sales are here, including 60% off the recently-added Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Google Stadia is now a year old, and this has probably been the best month ever for the service. Family sharing finally arrived, iOS support is (once again) in development, some YouTube Premium subscribers received Stadia Premiere Edition for free, and Assassin's Creed Valhalla was a day-one release. The good news just keeps on coming, as Stadia receives another high-profile game (albeit a year late) and some decent Black Friday sales.

Stadia one year later: The grass is looking greener from up here in the cloud

Stadia one year later: The grass is looking greener from up here in the cloud

It's finally here — the day when everyone who said Google's cloud gaming platform would be canceled in less than a year are officially wrong. That's right, Stadia is turning one today. It's been a rollercoaster of a ride with plenty of highs and lows. However, despite it all, I still believe Stadia has grown a lot in 12 short months, and it's time we give it some credit.

Stadia is a year old today — and it's still not a viable alternative to console and PC gaming

Stadia is a year old today — and it's still not a viable alternative to console and PC gaming

One year ago today, Google launched Stadia, which, at the time, seemed like a promising new player in the gaming space. I reviewed it back then and found that while streaming performance was everything I could've hoped for, the selection of games and availability of basic features were both lacking. The number of available games on the platform has increased roughly fivefold since day one, and a lot of the features that weren't ready for launch, like achievements and family game sharing, are here — but against the backdrop of the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, the service is still feeling half-baked.

Google Stadia will start testing an iOS version soon

Google is gearing up to test a long-awaited iOS version of its Stadia game-streaming service — with a twist. To avoid the App Store's new and ridiculous game streaming policy, Google's making the iOS version of Stadia a web app, bypassing Apple entirely.

YouTube Premium subscribers in more countries can now get their free Stadia Premiere Edition bundle

Google loves to bundle all kinds of perks with its subscriptions, and a free Stadia Premiere Edition worth $100 is the latest generous gift lucky YouTube Premium subscribers can receive in the US and UK. And now, the company has expanded the offer to more countries. A while back, a Google support representative told a Redditor that the promo would be available in Canada, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain starting November 16, 2020, and with that date already passed, the promo is now live in these countries.

Stadia has been in the news lately for generously giving out Stadia Premiere bundles to YouTube Premium subscribers, but that's not the only thing Google's cloud gaming service is giving away. It has now implemented a new messaging system, allowing users to send written messages back and forth between friends who are also on Stadia.

How to share Stadia games with your friends and family

How to share Stadia games with your friends and family

For most of the service's first year, Stadia players were frustrated by their inability to share games with family members. If you and your kids or spouse (or roommates, or whoever) wanted to play the same game with more than one save file, you had to buy multiple copies. But no more! Earlier this month, Google finally relented and enabled family sharing on Stadia. Here's how to set it up.
