Google is teaming with AT&T to give away 6 months of free Stadia Pro

AT&T subscribers who take advantage of this deal can also snag a Stadia controller and Chromecast Ultra for $20.

What you need to know

  • AT&T Fiber and 5G customers can get 6 months of Stadia Pro for free.
  • Stadia Pro comes with free games every month, such as MotoGP20 and Chronos: Before the Ashes.
  • Customers that sign up for Stadia Pro can buy a Stadia Controller and Chromecast Ultra bundle for $19.99.

Many of the best cell phone plans come with some extra perks like Netflix or HBO Max but starting June 9, 2021, AT&T is putting the focus on gamers with Stadia. Paired with one of its fiber optic home internet plans or 5G wireless unlimited plans, AT&T is offering customers six months of Stadia Pro for free with the option to buy a Stadia controller and Chromecast Ultra for just $19.99.

This is open to existing wireless customer that upgrade to a 5G phone or new customers that add a 5G phone. New fiber internet customers and existing home internet customers that upgrade to AT&T Fiber can also get this deal.

Anyone with a Google account can sign up for Stadia, and upgrading to a Stadia Pro subscription gives you a handful of great games. In June, Stadia Pro subscribers got access to four new games including MotoGP20, Chronos: Before the Ashes, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, and Blue Fire. Stadia Pro users can claim these games and continue to play them as long as they maintain their Stadia Pro status. You can also use Stadia more like a traditional game console and purchase games for the platform.

Since Stadia's games are streamed over the internet, making sure you have plenty of speed is essential, and AT&T's 500Mbps or gigabit fiber internet packages are a great fit. If you're away from your home Wi-Fi, you can also use Stadia with AT&T's 5G network. For 4K HDR gameplay, Stadia's maximum quality, Stadia recommends a 35Mbps connection.

For the best Stadia experience, you also need your latency to be as low as possible. Since all of the rendering is done remotely, your control inputs must be sent to Stadia over the internet. Fiber offers some of the best possible latency while you're at home while 5G delivers the best latency on the go. AT&T's fiber internet and 5G plans come with unlimited data as well, which is important as a full-quality Stadia stream can use as much as 20GB of data in an hour.

AT&T customers that sign up for the Stadia Pro trial can get a Stadia Controller bundle with a Chromecast Ultra for $19.99. With this package, you can game in 4K from your couch with no wires and, most importantly, no need for a costly power-hungry 4K console. If you don't want to use the Stadia controller, there are plenty of great Stadia controllers from third-party manufacturers that you can use, too.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.
