Trying to register for a Google Stadia account, but it requires that you activate a Stadia Pro trial that you may not want yet. Fear not, I have a bypass to get you through the registration process. Along with some other Stadia information’s. Otherwise, this post is going to be really short lol.
So the first order of business is actually registering for Stadia with your Google account.
- To register for a Google account: https://accounts.google.com/
- To register for Stadia: https://stadia.google.com/
Once you have your Google account setup and gone through the Stadia registration process. You'll eventually reach this point, towards the end of Stadia registration. Where it forces you to activate your 1 month free Stadia Pro trial, which would require payment information, which is an inconvenient if you just want to create a free account.
Now for the bypass, you'll simply go claim a free game. The free games available at the time of writing are:
Once you claim a free game you'll be taken to the Stadia store page of the game you claimed. Now you can activate your 1 month free Pro trial at any time by simply visiting the pro trial page and enter your payment information.
If you're attempting this bypass on mobile devices. You'll need to sign-in and claim a free game within a web browser app like chrome or safari (depending on device) instead of the Stadia app. That's it, easy eh?
How to cancel Stadia Pro Subscription
To cancel a Stadia Pro subscription, simply head over to:
Under "Purchases & Subscriptions" you'll find your Stadia Pro Subscription there. Simply click the "Unsubscribe" button. Your trial will cancel on it's expire date.
How to enable Family Sharing for Stadia Games
If you like to share your Stadia game library with up to 6 family members.
Simply set up a family Group by heading over here:
Afterwards remember to enable family sharing in your Stadia account under the "family" setting option:
Once added to the family group. That member will have access to your complete Stadia library, including Pro games. Please note only one copy of each game can be accessed at a time. There's also a 12 month cooldown after making changes to the group.
