Stadia set to offer trials of the service

Head of product John Justice reveals that this is in the works, although details are still being ironed out.

With Google promising big things with its Stadia service, like gaming anywhere and on any device, it's safe to say that people have a lot of reservations, questions, and doubts about the service, which is probably why Google is considering offering trials to newcomers, as revealed by Stadia head of product John Justice.

Justice explained this in an interview with StadiaCast recently, during which time he said:

"We will have trials. We're not gonna have trials for—it'll be a few months until they actually go out. We will be adding trials, we're just working through what's the right 'when' and how exactly to set it up, and you can imagine how busy things are now just getting ready for launch. So there's the launch stuff and then there's, okay, what do we want to do next, next, next, after, and so trials is something that's high up on the list."

"If you look at our plan to make as many people be able to try this as possible, you want people, whether they're already on Stadia, to let them go discover new games, new things, the stuff you haven't tried. And then also people who, if you haven't given it a try, we want to let you just jump in as easily as you can. So I think both of those things, both those are trials that we want to support."

This is a good idea for Stadia considering the amount of people worried about whether their internet can handle it, how it'll work, and whether it'll be something they'd enjoy, but we'll have to wait a bit longer for more details on this.
