Of course, the aim is to avoid compatibility problems with the hardware and operating system of our devices. Only thing you have to do is start the game and enjoy it. However, as you have already deduced, having a high-speed internet connection is really important.
Up to this point, more or less everyone is clear about it, however doubts about Stadia grow exponentially when we talk about the subscription packs. Although many users are unaware of this, it is not necessary to pay for a basic service account. Because Stadia is also a game store.
So, the basic subscription level is free, and those users can buy games and enjoy them.

As we mentioned before, you can play them remotely, on any compatible device.
Stadia Pro is a subscription service for $10 monthly, it offers access to a catalog of games that is renewed periodically and, additionally, discounted prices are available in the store. You can unsubscribe easily if you don’t want to be a part of Stadia Pro anymore.
