1. Cost of Stadia

The company has not yet shared any major information related to the cost of Stadia or pricing details related to it. What we do know is that it will be coming to the US, Canada, and most of Europe in the next few months.

We would advise you to stay in sync with the details by joining Google's official Reddit community where they tend to post about such information.
