At the first Stadia Connect livestream, Google unveiled key details about its game streaming service, including pricing and titles. A day later, the company is advertising Stadia across Google Search.
Your first visit to Google Search today (either signed-in or logged off) on the desktop web will pop up the rounded banner in the top-right corner of the screen. “Introducing Stadia,” Google invites users to “learn more about the new gaming platform.” Clicking will open the Google Store listing for the Stadia Founder’s Edition. Stadia.com now also redirects to that pre-order page.
This bubble appears on both Google.com and Search results (i.e. if your first visit to Google is via searching in Chrome from the New Tab page). In the latter example, it will follow users as they scroll down the page. “No thanks” immediately dismisses the banner, but it will automatically disappear after that visit.
