    If you were an early adopter of Google Stadia who purchased the Founder’s Edition in November 2019 and promptly activated your service, your complimentary three-month trial of Stadia Pro will soon come to an end. And depending on when your Buddy Pass was activated, that might be expiring soon, too.

    Unless you want to start paying $10 per month to keep it going, you might want to cancel it instead. But here’s a question that might be running through your mind: “What’s going to happen to my games?”

    The answer, like all things related to Stadia’s current business model, is a little complicated. If you opt out of renewing your Stadia Pro subscription when the trial expires:
    • You’ll lose access to any games that you claimed for free while being a member
    • You can keep playing any games that you purchased outright
    • You’ll be limited to a 1080p stream with stereo sound, instead of 4K and 5.1 surround
    That makes sense — the games you bought with actual money won’t be trapped behind the $10 per month paywall, and the “free” games work similarly to how PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold do today.
