Stadia Community team here to bring you a quick recap of all things Stadia (that we can get our hands on!) from product updates to community highlights! We wanted to drop a post into the community before the holidays and are hoping to have more regular updates starting next year. We can’t promise that we’ll always have changes or updates to announce, but you will get more regular notes from us!
What we need from you is your feedback: do you like these types of recaps? What should we change?? What else would you like to see us talk about? Your feedback will inform how we communicate with you in the future, so please take a look at the inaugural edition below and let us know what you think!
Lots has been happening this month — hopefully you’ve caught our Stadia Savepoint update on The Keyword covering the latest Stadia updates, including:
And, we’ve got two more updates for you here on the Community:

Introducing the Stadia Guides
You may notice a handful of users on the Community Forum with the custom rank of “Stadia Guide.” These users have gone above and beyond to be helpful and valuable contributors to the community. As such, these users have been distinguished with a badge icon to signify their achievement. We'll have more information about how you can earn this distinction soon. For now, simply be a helpful and positive contributor and we'll keep you posted.
Community Username Requests
We’ve been seeing a small number of requests come in asking for the ability to change Community Forum usernames. We won’t be able to fulfill those requests - our policy is only to change usernames that are clearly abusive in nature. So pick that username carefully - you’ll be together for a long time!
“Last added” filter not sorting games correctly - When a user attempts to sort a list of games by “Last added”, it will not show the games in the order that they were added to Stadia. Good news - we’ve made a lot of progress on a fix for this issue, and I’ll let you know when we are able to roll it out.
Accepting friend requests - Some users are reporting that they've "hit the friend cap.” The user is able to send friend requests to other users on Stadia, but they’re unable to accept incoming requests. We have a fix in the works for this issue as well - stay tuned for further updates.
Aurora borealis? At this time of year? At this time of day? In this part of the internet? Localized entirely within your controller?
On Friday, December 13, we crowned the winner of the “I Made This” Play it Forward Community Event on r/Stadia. Shoutout to u/patlon for their phenomenal design, and you can catch them on our subreddit sporting the “Sweet Victory” flair.

… and that about rounds it up for this week! We’re hoping things will be pretty quiet so we can all play Borderla--- I mean, spend time with our loved ones... Don't expect too much news until we're all back in January, but we’ll be keeping our eyes open for any new bugs or issues and we’ll casually check in to see how you all are doing. Happy Holidays everybody~
