After Offering Free Stadia Pro, Google Stadia Surges
With Google offering two months of Google Stadia Premium for free, the platform has been flooded with subscribers. The official mobile app for Stadia has officially passed one million downloads according to analytics from Sensor Tower thanks to the free promotion. The numbers Google Stadia achieved following the free promotion surpass the users they acquired upon launch, proving the free model is a successful one. Google Stadia Premium allows gamers to play for free right now, with some free games available to gamers strictly looking for cheap fun. Typically Google Stadia Premium costs $10 per month but gamers can secure two free months now.
“To help people connect with friends online & have some fun during these challenging times, we’re opening up Stadia for everyone. You’ll also get 2 months of free access to Stadia Pro with some free games to play!” exclaimed the Google Stadia Twitter account just prior to surging in popularity. According to Sensor Tower analytics, over 225,000 users were added to the Stadia platform after the free offer, which puts it ahead of the official release of the platform in one week installs.
While Google Stadia has struggled to reach the popularity the developers behind it hoped for, the free Stadia Premium offer has clearly garnered them more attention. Get Packed devs recently spoke highly about the service and exclusive titles like theirs may be key in maintaining the new user base achieved with the free two month offer. It’s likely that many of the new users will leave the service once their free trial expires but Google may have some tricks up their sleeves to maintain the newly acquired user base moving forward.
