Anyone who bought the Google Stadia Founder’s Edition received three months of Stadia Pro subscription for free. Stadia Pro is Google’s premium offering that gives you the ability to play in 4K resolution and discounts on select titles from the Stadia library. If you were one of the first to receive your Stadia kit and immediately signed up for Stadia Pro, your three months is about to expire. Here’s how you can manage your Stadia Pro subscription, confirm which credit card Google has on file, or simply cancel your subscription.

How to manage (or cancel) your Google Stadia Pro Subscription
Launch the Google Play Store on your phone.
Tap the Menu button on the left side of the search bar.
Find and tap your subscription for Stadia Pro.
Here, you can update your primary payment method, set up a backup payment method, or cancel your subscription.
Stadia Pro costs $10 a month (or $12 a month if you live in Canada), so it’s worth confirming which credit card you want to be charged before your three months are up. If you choose to cancel your Stadia Pro subscription, you will retain access to your Stadia Pro benefits until your three months of free service concludes. Of course, you can still enjoy gaming on Stadia without a Stadia Pro subscription, you’ll just have to pay for games at full price.
Just be sure you’re logged into the Google account that you signed up for Stadia or the subscription won’t show up in the Google Play Store.
