Google announced earlier this month that indie darling platformer Celeste was making its way to Stadia "soon." The company made good on its word: you'll be able to pick the game up today for $19.99. Google also announced August's free games for Pro subscribers: Metro 2033 Redux, Strange Brigade, Kona, and Just Shapes & Beats.
Google's game streaming service is entering a new month with more deals and free games for its paid subscribers and just more games, period. From a game creator game — yep, that's a thing — to a sale on Metro Exodus, here's the rundown for what's new in Stadia for July (and the last week of June).
Google soft-launched its game streaming service, Stadia, with sales of a Founders Edition hardware kit that contained a Chromecast Ultra, a controller optimized for the experience, and three months of Stadia Pro access for $129. Now, after Stadia's full debut, what's now known as the Premiere Edition is shedding that Pro pass while also dropping its price appropriately.
The Stadia Team has just published a community blog post that details a plethora of new features that are already available on the platform or are rolling out shortly. Today's most significant addition is the support for all Android phones, including a handful of OnePlus devices that were named specifically. On top of this, Google has released support for touch controls in all games as well as compatibility for per-device resolution options. Best of all, Stadia is currently offering $10 off your next game purchase if you're a Pro member.
Google finally opened Stadia to the public back in April, allowing anyone living in supported regions to try Stadia Pro for two months, free of charge. With June quickly approaching, any players who jumped onto the Stadia bandwagon on public launch day will soon be paying $9.99 a month for Google's cloud gaming service, unless they opt out. Here's how to cancel your subscription before your free trial of Stadia Pro expires.

If you've been on the fence about joining Stadia Pro and going full-bore on streaming video games, your opportunity for an extended test drive is whittling down. Google already announced that it will reduce free trials from 2 months down to one starting June 3, so now it's really time to use it or lose it.
T-Mobile offers a number of perks to its postpaid subscribers through the T-Mobile Tuesdays app. This week, Un-Carrier customers can nab a three-month subscription to Stadia Pro — provided they haven't signed up for the cloud gaming service already. Pro usually costs $10 per month.
If you're already streaming games with Stadia Pro, there's some good news: a whole new batch of games have come on sale. And if you're a new member, there's even better news: all the other games that went on sale in the past two weeks are still on sale.
