The Google Stadia concept seems healthy. Instead of spending hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on a high-end PC, you can stream games to your budget machine ̵
Usually, Google will let you try Stadia Pro for a month. That’s more than enough time to try out the service, see what games are available, and decide if the paid tier is worth your time. And it’s significantly more time than it takes you to answer the most critical question: Can your Internet keep up with Stadia?
But you had to request credit card information. Of course, that leaves you open to the option of forgetting to cancel and pay for a service that you cannot (or cannot) use. Now, as noted by 9to5Google, there is a better option.
If everyone wants to know if your internet is up to speed (literally), you can now sign up for a trial account without handing over your financial details. At the end of the trial registration, you will see an option to try the service for 30 minutes.
That’s enough time to get started, claim a free game (Stadia Pro hands out free games every month) and get started. If your internet can’t handle game streaming, you can let the trial period expire without losing your love. If you decide you want to proceed, provide your credit card information.
It may not seem like much, but in terms of answering the most crucial question, “can my internet do this?” removing additional barriers is a good thing. If you didn’t even want to give Stadia Pro a try, you have nothing to lose now.
