Setting up Ubisoft + on Stadia just got a lot easier
This week, Google made setup even easier with Ubisoft + on Stadiums. By allowing users to register for the Ubisoft + service directly from the Stadia app.
Ubisoft + has been available to users through Google’s cloud gaming platform since last december. But you had to register via the web at Ubisoft + website. Where you had to link your Stadia account. That’s fine because the process was not really difficult.
But it might be a bit more difficult for people on the go. Not impossible, because you can still view this web page from your phone’s browser, but through the app is definitely a simpler process.
Stadia app now correctly labels Ubisoft + titles
While signing up for the app is now an easy and painless process, so is finding your Ubisoft + games. Before, if you had Ubisoft +, you just had to keep track of the games included. Then find them in your library.
Now, however, all Ubisoft + titles are properly labeled. If it is part of Ubisoft +, it will have a blue Ubisoft + badge on thumbnail image. Just like your Stadia Pro titles. You no longer have to scroll and search carefully for everything.
It may be a minor change, but it is also a change in quality of life. And one that, surprisingly, hasn’t been implemented from the start. If you’ve never set up Ubisoft + before, a banner message should be the first thing you see when you open the Stadia app.
There will be a button that says see more details and tapping on that will take you to the next step to register. Keep in mind that Ubisoft + is not free and will cost you an additional $ 14.99 per month. But for that you get unlimited access to a large collection of Ubisoft titles and you can play them as long as you have an active subscription.
You don’t need Stadia Pro
You can have Stadia Pro and Ubisoft + subscriptions. As one will not deny the other. But you don’t need have both. You can only subscribe to Ubisoft + if you wish at any time.
If, for example, you’re done with all of your Pro titles, you can take Pro off for a month or two while you play some of the Ubisoft + titles. This way you save some money. Then you can always go back.
