Google Stadia is a game streaming service that lets you play games on a number of devices by streaming through the cloud. The service has been criticized since launch because it doesn't deliver on dozens of promised features. While Google has released Buddy Pass and other changes, there's a lot of work that has to be done.

According to Stadia Source, the Stadia Store is getting a number of changes soon. Features like Most Played and Wishlist will be added. You can take a look at all of the discovered Stadia Store categories below.

The "Leaving Stadia Pro Soon" may raise some red flags, but we believe that it's just a category where it shows you that the games you can redeem for the month before it's too late. Let's hope this doesn't mean that gamers will lose access to Claimed titles like Destiny 2, Samurai Shodown, Farming Simulator 19: Platinum Edition, and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. However, only time will tell.

VPN Deals: Lifetime license for $16, monthly plans at $1 & more

The other notable categories have to be Demos and Trials. This is a great way for many gamers to test our Stadia before committing to the service. Let's hope these features roll out sooner rather than later.
