The Stadia Community Team is excited to announce some upcoming enhancements to the Community Forum experience.
Beginning on Friday, September 25 at 9AM PT, Stadia players will be able to link their Stadia account with their forum account. This functionality will have two immediate effects:
So what will all of this look like?
Once the feature is live, you will need to be logged out, then sign-in with Google SSO. Make sure to select the e-mail to which your Stadia account is tied. You will be prompted to grant or deny access to your Stadia account. Note: you may revoke access any time to your Stadia account by the Forum by visiting your Google account’s security settings.
After approving access, your forum account will be automatically updated to reflect your status as either a Founder or Stadia Player . To see a glossary of all current badges and icons, check out this post.
If you are not already a forum member, you will be asked to select a username. Founders will see a new link on the homepage to the Founders Hub. You will also find a link to this area in the hamburger menu.
With this functionality, we will be able to build out a rich feature set in the future to further enhance the Community for all players. In the next update from us, you’ll hear a bit more about our plans, including the addition of a gamification system and other cool features. If you have ideas you’d like to share with us, please leave a comment below.
As a final note, we’d like to thank our Founders for believing in Stadia. Early adopters pave the way for those to come, and you deserve recognition. This is just the beginning of our journey together, and we are tremendously excited to have you all along.
The Stadia Community Team
I am very pleased with this implementation. Looks like the right steps toward putting the community back in focus, as it should be. Congrats @StadiaTeam
Can't wait to see the Q&A sessions! I just hope that the Stadia Team will be able to answer a few technical questions. (performance, stream quality and maybe maybe the new hardware but I don't think so)
Again, this is good news, but it feels like this should have been implemented several months ago, it's a step in the right direction, but a small one.
and to all the people praising stadia for just about doing the bare minimum months after it should have been implemented, just how easily pleased are you with a badge and the forum about the platform finally being linked to the platform?
I don't know if I'm just spoiled from having decades of choice and seeing games companies thrive and die through that time (remember Sega anyone? How about Sinclair, atari, amiga ( FFS, star trek TNG digital effects were made on an amiga 4000), all gone the way of the dinosaur because of mismanagement!) and from my perspective, stadia needs to step it up about 10 gears, we need text chat tomorrow, all the launch promise features tomorrow, road map of upcoming features tomorrow!
You seem to have taken on board that people are frustrated, but this won't keep people happy for long.
As I do agree with 'its a step in the right direction, but a small one'. Every bit helps 🙂 and here is on hoping that the Stadia Team will finally be more transparent with roadmaps and features. (Even if some (chat support e.g.) should already be available from day 1)
It is nice to see that even after almost a year, the streaming technology used by Google, is still the smoothest. They know how to implement it technically, sadly the marketing side sucks bad.
Here is to hoping that they will learn and share more with the community. To the Stadia Team, keep up the good work! You're all doing a great job, but don't let the 'simple' marketing be the downside of the product.
We are all very excited in what the future will bring us all.
Would what I say in the community affect my Founders account and Stadia policies? Is that when I see 7 Indie games, I feel like insulting even cockroaches 🤣... Poor cockroaches they are not to blame 😭🙃
Bringing the community together?
They are splitting us up! There are many like myself that couldn't get Founders Edition and had to settle for Premiere Edition for the same price (and charged when Founders/Premiere shipped) who are just as much early adopters as any Founder member. Premiere users abused again! BS!
Couldn't agree with this post more. Been a day 1 Premier user (as the founders edition sold out before I could get the funds to order it), so as SeV5er says just as much an early adopter as any Founder member. Feels like our loyalty does not matter.
You're mad at Stadia because you didn't have enough money to buy a controller? The deal was clear, if you bought a Founder's Edition you got extra perks. You can't be mad that they sold out before you got one. It's not like the PS5 launch which is a total cluster. The Founder's Editions were available for quite a while before they sold out. That's just life, man.
