LG partners with Google and offers 3 months of Stadia cloud gaming access

With the progress made in communication technologies and the increasingly important deployment of fiber optics, cloud gaming tends to develop little by little. Many players such as Google, Microsoft, Sony, Nvidia or even Amazon offer this service.

The concept is simple, let a server run a game and only send display data to a device that doesn’t need to be a state-of-the-art computer to provide a smooth experience. The only condition is to have a sufficiently fast internet connection.

Cloud gaming arrives on televisions

By integrating cloud gaming into their devices, manufacturers can offer an alternative to game consoles. No need to buy the latest PlayStation or Xbox anymore, in exchange for a subscription, players have access to a regularly updated catalog of games, without having to worry about the “hardware” part.

Among all the cloud gaming offers, which we have compared here, is Google Stadia. Absent from Google I / O 2022, the service was announced as “dying” according to rumors. Still, Google doesn’t seem ready to bury its service anytime soon.

After announcing a partnership with Samsung, it’s LG’s turn to offer its customers 3 months of access to Stadia Pro for free. Stadia Pro gives you access to Google’s service, as well as a catalog of included games. However, some titles, like Cyberpunk 2077 which we tested on the service, will require you to checkout.

Google is increasing the offers to allow users to discover the advantages of cloud gaming which, despite its many strengths, is struggling to take off. Note that people who subscribe to Google One can also take advantage of these 3 free trial months.
