After announcing the availability of free game trials, Google Stadia has another new feature.
From now on, to make use of the free trials, users do not need to have a Stadia account.
Free trials on Google Stadia are no longer exclusive to Pro subscribers
Google Stadia wants to win more users for its gaming platform and, after having released free trials of available games, it brings another very appealing novelty.
According to a user identified by Gem, Google Stadia is allowing a 30-minute free trial of its exclusive Hello Enginer title. Better yet: players can take the free trial without having to have a paid Stadia Pro subscription.
Remember that the Hello Enginer title is currently free for Stadia Pro subscribers for a limited time. In other words, all users who pay for the Pro subscription can test the game, before spending money to buy it.
But now it seems that the free trials are accessible to all users. And the process takes place in an intuitive way and, above all, based on a chronometer. Once the free trial starts, players have access to the full game via the Google Stadia sidebar which displays a timer for counting the trial time.
Trial timer does not include active game play
But be aware that the stopwatch counts the time from the beginning of the test and not the active playing time of the game. That is, it does not count the effective playing time. Once the trial period ends, the user is asked if he wants to purchase the game and, in the case of an affirmative answer, the progress in the game is saved at the end of the test.
Through the social network Reddit, Google confirmed that this feature is being tested and that it could be extended to more games in the coming months. But we must point out that, despite not needing a Pro account to access the new feature, the player always needs a Google account to play.
