Stadia now lets you add notes to your friends profiles
Have you ever wanted to add notes to your friends’ profiles on Stadiums? Well if you answered yes then you are in luck because it looks like Google just added this feature on the sly. Now, this isn’t a major feature, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Google hasn’t gone out of its way to advertise it.
But it’s a nifty little feature that you can find with other services. Discord, for example, lets you add notes to your friends’ profiles, just like Battle.net. The arrival of the ability to add notes to friends’ profiles on Stadia was discovered by Source Stadia, and initially spotted by 9To5Google in the Stadia app code earlier this year.
So it wasn’t entirely unheard of that the feature would be added at some point.
Stadia friends’ ratings are limited to a small number of characters
While this is a cool and useful feature, the ability to add notes for your friends won’t allow for a ridiculously large set of words.
Don’t think you can write a small article the size of a review. They are notes after all. That said, the notes are a bit shorter than expected. Again, these are notes. So, they’re not really meant to be long posts.
You will have exactly 25 characters available to you here. So make sure what you want to say is short and sweet and to the point. If you are an adult, coordinating play time with your friends sometimes becomes a bit more difficult.
This is where these notes can become extremely useful. Maybe you’ve made a time to play something with a friend. You can use the note to add this time so you don’t forget it. Then, when the day comes, you can tap on the profile and receive a reminder.
Notes are personal and not public
If you’re worried about privacy for some reason, or just curious, the notes can’t be seen by the people you add them to. Not that it must necessarily matter, but they are private nonetheless.
Notes can be added through the Stadia app and it looks like they are supported on the Stadia website as well. They should also be supported on the Chromecast Ultra if you’re playing them as well.
